About AGON

come in > source out

The dramatic changes in the pharmaceutical and healthcare market, such as increasing cost pressure, increased globalisation of supply chains, varying national requirements for marketing authorisation documentation and the opening up of new markets, are forcing companies in the pharmaceutical industry to adopt new strategies and make efficient adjustments. Companies, especially small and medium-sized enterprises, have to concentrate on their strengths and core competencies and manage costs.

Market success heavily depends on product quality, which must be continuously adjusted, improved and maintained to keep up with the latest scientific developments. Companies affected by these developments are often no longer able to maintain the full extent of infrastructure and resources to meet these requirements. Even the OTC divisions in large, multinational corporations are buckling under the weight of assigning priority to research and development, because the relevant resources are engaged in "Big Point Innovations", leaving no resources available for other developments, such as in the herbal medicinal product area. The same applies to the development, adaptation and implementation of analytical methods and the capacities available in the in-house laboratories.

You can now delegate relevant tasks in your portfolio to an experienced service provider with decades of experience and expertise in a variety of areas, such as development projects, marketing authorisation procedures, amendment and maintenance of existing marketing authorisations, and even stability and release testing. As a partner, we help you to solve product-specific problems and manage the execution of defined projects. We look forward to working with you!

How AGON works

  1. 01

    Getting to know each other

    At the beginning of any cooperation, we will take some time to get to know each other personally and exchange some initial ideas about the project. We will discuss your marketing authorisation project during a briefing and draft a profile, draw up a project development plan with concrete work steps, timing and costs and define go/no-go decision boxes together with you. Based on these preliminary stages, we will then discuss and agree upon the service contract, including the defined services.

    We are happy to advise you on the addition of new galenic forms, therapeutic indications and new products to your product portfolio, based on the existing HMPC monographs. Thanks to our many years of experience and cooperation with active substance suppliers and medicinal product manufacturers products, we are able to assess and promote development opportunities for new and innovative products. We are happy to advise you on the expansion of your activities at home and abroad, based on expertly coordinated content.

    Laboratory analytics

    We will be happy to prepare an offer for outsourcing tasks, such as release and stability testing, or the development or adaptation of analytical methods to reflect the most recent scientific and technological developments. We are also able to offer flexible and reliable warehousing and release testing, even at short notice, since we have our own laboratory and a wide range of equipment for analysis and climate testing. This is obviously subject to the authorisation granted by our manufacturing permit, GMP certificate and constant monitoring of the relevant key performance indicators and data.

    AGON is a member of the Federal Association of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers as well as the Phytopharmaka Cooperation. We have been able to continuously improve our offerings due to consistent exchanges with our partners and network of associations.

  5. 05

    Quality Management and GMP

    Our QM system is certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 9001:2015. Due to continuous improvements and optimisations, the various regulations, ordinances and legal provisions stated in the GMP guidelines, Ordinance on the Production of Pharmaceuticals and Active Substances (AMWHV), Medicinal Products Act (AMG) and other regulations have not taken centre stage. Patient safety and customer satisfaction are our top priorities in this extremely valuable field.
