Humco Launches Line of Repackaged Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients

AUSTIN, April 18, 2016/– Humco, a diversified global pharmaceutical company, announced the launch of twenty-four repackaged Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) in key therapeutic categories including Pain Management, Infectious Disease, and Hormone Replacement Therapy. Humco’s API launch brings the highest levels of quality to hospitals and compounding pharmacies in a variety of conveniently packaged sizes.

“We are thrilled to launch our API portfolio to our customers around the world. We believe with our stringent quality and testing standards that we can provide increased value to patients and pharmacies,” said Andrew Pulido, Humco’s President, Global Pharmaceuticals.

Humco performs thorough testing for identification and potency on each lot of API received. In addition to identifying that the correct active ingredient was received, Humco also ensures comprehensive testing to validate that the API is pure, as required through potency testing. Humco is confident that their analytical scrutiny has helped dismiss suppliers that do not meet their high standards of quality.
