Zelltek SA produces active biopharmaceutical ingredients in a production site located at the Parque Tecnológico Litoral Centro (Santa Fe).
In August 2013, LIF and Zelltek signed an agreement of “Mutual collaboration and assistance”.
Due to this agreement, LIF will be able to provide biogenerics such as Erythropoietin, Interferon and Filgrastim. And, in this way, add a new products line in its portfolio, which so far only includes medicines for primary healthcare.
