GIHON Laboratories Receives Grant for Thimerosal Supply Security

Laboratorios Quimicos S.R.L. – the worldwide qualified producer of Thimerosal – received a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to manufacture a twelve-month stockpile of Thimerosal. This stockpile is to be used in the case of an unexpected change in policy or unavailability of Thimerosal, ensuring the continuous production and preservation of human and veterinary vaccines.

“We feel honored to be one of the pieces in this gearbox that will try to remedy the lack of vaccines among children and adults of less privileged areas of the world. We are pursuing a beautiful goal and it makes worth the effort”
so Ricardo Chevalier, CEO of GIHON Laboratorios Quimicos S.R.L.

Cfm Oskar Tropitzsch GmbH – the worldwide sales agent beside South America – supports the goal of preserving a stockpile by keeping half of this supply in its warehouses in Germany. By splitting of stockpile storage, an additional safeguard is put in place and a fast supply in case of emergency is guaranteed. 

“We are proud to be part of this project to secure worldwide vaccination.”
comments Steffen Tropitzsch, CEO of Cfm Oskar Tropitzsch GmbH
