Innovations at Geistlich Pharma – sustainable and responsible
Geistlich has done pioneering work in the development of biomaterials. The pioneering spirit of Geistlich runs through the company’s history and is essential for the company’s future: “Either you are a pioneer, or you stand still…” Geistlich is pursuing a policy of innovation in which it is not about commercialising innovations at any price as quickly as possible. Geistlich develops in a sustainable and responsible manner.
Geistlich’s innovations are breaking new grounds:
• Geistlich Bio-Oss® has revolutionised dental bone regeneration.
• Geistlich Bio-Gide® has simplified Guided Bone Regeneration decisively.
• Chondro-Gide® has opened new ways in cartilage regeneration.
The quality, safety and efficacy of the product are always of paramount importance. Geistlich has invested a lot in this: in new technologies, technical equipment and in the continuous initial and further training of its employees – and will continue to do so in the future.
The goal of Geistlich is to help patients obtain a better quality of life. This is done firstly with new products and secondly through the development of new technologies or new areas of application for products that are already available. The company’s innovation activities are organised accordingly. Eighty per cent of the innovation projects serve to develop products tailored to the customer’s requirements. The company uses the remaining 20 per cent to conduct basic research and to develop new possibilities for our already existing core competences (e.g. collagen expertise).
Collaboration with experts
Geistlich Pharma employs highly specialised scientists in-house who also have an excellent reputation in expert circles. There is also an intensive exchange with a large scientific network of international universities. Before introducing its products to the market, Geistlich Pharma evaluates them in detail together with experienced users and provides the scientific proof that they meet the high Geistlich requirements with regard to quality and efficacy.
