Further products, produced according to GMP, are available upon customer request.   For Kolb this is an important step-up in serving pharmaceutical customers. These customers typically use the polysorbate as excipient, however the certificate of GMP compliance by Swissmedic allows also the use in "API-like" applications. Because Swissmedic will audit Kolb yearly, customers can reduce their frequency of auditing Kolb. This is of course another huge advantage for Kolb's customers.
