About the Company

Avicenna is a manufacturer of solid dosage form of drug products. Founded in 1982, the company supplies various oral drug products to domestic and international clients. Business Development, Regulatory Affairs, Sales, Marketing and other administrative and financial functions are conducted through our head office in Tehran. Manufacturing, QA/QC and material management Departments are located in Kaveh Industrial Park, 90 km south of Tehran. Avicenna was granted Science-Based Company status by the Office of the Vice President for Research and Development in 2017.

This was based on its record of excellence in Research and Development as demonstrated in numerous scientific publications and international patents of the Azhand Group (see http://www.freepatentsonline.com, KhashayarKarimian, http://ibb.ut. ac.ir / karimian) and included the production of High Potency (HiPo) drugs in closed production systems which were designed by Azhand engineering and technical staff and manufactured by various domestic fabricators.

All production equipment have been validated for pressure differentials, ammonia leak, dispersed oil particulate (DOP), and naproxen surrogate tests (ISO 14644-1:2015, EU GMP Annex 1, 21 CFR Part 11). Occupational exposure limits (OELs) in various steps of production have been measured and certified by regulatory authorities and found to be considerably below the allowed limits, allowing Avicenna Category V HiPo oral drug production. Avicenna was granted Science-Based Company status by the Office of the Vice President for Research and Development in 2016.
