Diego Bruno (LIF’s Director) and Roberto Ganin (LIF’s General Manager) travelled to Río Negro province where they visited the Laboratorio Productor de Medicamentos (PROZOME).Marne Livigni (PROZOME’s Director), Viviana Erripa (Technical Director) and Romina Martínez (Technical Area) welcomed the LIF’s members and then they had a meeting in which they exchanged information about the public production of medicines.
As a result from this meeting, both laboratories will renew the Agreement of Mutual Cooperation signed in 2010.
Today, PROZOME doesn’t have the national approval by ANMAT*. Therefore, LIF will collaborate with PROZOME through advice and with associated work.
After the meeting Bruno and Ganin visited the different areas as quality control, storage and production.
PROZOME: Laboratorio Productor de Medicamentos de la Provincia de Río Negro. (Manufacturer Laboratory of Medicines of Río Negro province). It is a state-run laboratory manufacturing pharmaceutical products.
(*) ANMAT: Administración Nacional de Medicamentos, Alimentos y Tecnología Médica. (National Regulatory Agency for medicines, food and medical devices).
