International Day of Women and Girls in Science – Meet Kristina Grimm, our Medical Science Liaison Germany

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Today, we are celebrating the 6th edition of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. This annual international day has been established to recognize the critical role women and girls play in science and technology. It is an opportunity to promote full and equal access to and participation in science for women and girls.On this occasion, we want to introduce you to our Medical Science Liaison Germany, Kristina Grimm.

Kristina, why have you chosen to step into the scientific world ?

I’ve always seen science as an adventure. You explore, investigate and develop new components. You are always at the forefront to learn and search something new. It’s all about facts. You can prove what you see. For these reasons I started my biologist studies at the University of Münster and Köln and I worked in a lab.

How working as a MSL make sense to you?

After obtaining my PhD and working in a lab in the US, I started my professional career as Account Manager for companies specialised in pharmaceutical products for rare diseases. While I enjoyed these experiences, I felt I missed the scientific part of it.

At Eumedica, as MSL for the German market, I help to ensure that our products are utilized effectively and serve as scientific support for the medical community and internal colleague. Moreover, I enjoy developing relationships with specialists who are involved in the infectiology research such as microbiologists and epidemiologists.

Being the link between both sides is very exciting and inspiring every day as, at my own scale, I contribute to making sure patients are treated in the most effective way.  

How is Eumedica different from other places you’ve worked at?

From the beginning, I felt that Eumedica believes in its people, and it doesn’t matter whether you’re a woman or a man. From my experience, I know it’s not always the case unfortunately. As from my job interviews at Eumedica I immediately thought that I was considered as an equal and that our discussions were more exchanges of experiences between two colleagues.

Besides, at Eumedica, while most of the activity is in Belgium, working abroad is not an issue. Indeed,  everything is put in place so it doesn’t matter where you work, you’re a strong member of the family.

We are committed  to our ethos of ensuring medical care continuity and bringing vital medicines to care-givers and patients throughout the world. To this end, we have recently been approved as an AEO (Authorised Economic Operator).

What is AEO status?

The AEO is granted to companies who are involved in customs operations and international trade, and meet a range of strict criteria related to supply chain security. It shows that our business’ role in the global supply chain is secure and reliable. In other words, it seeks to create a frictionless relationship between us and customs authorities around the world, based on mutual confidence and integrity.

What are the advantages?

In the first instance, we have been awarded the Authorised Economic Operator Customs Simplification (AEOC) status. This certificate, not only recognises our reliability and stringent processes, but also allows us to benefit from:

  • Easier admittance to customs simplifications     
  • Priority treatment if selected for control
  • Possibility to request a specific place for customs controls
  • Fewer physical and document-based controls related to other customs legislation

The AEOC status is vital for our company to allow us to meet the global demands of our customers; expediting procedures to get our products to where they are needed, to help patients around the world.

The transition period

Back in January 2020 saw the beginning of the transition period to the end of this year. We formed a new alliance with a UK distributor to store and ship medicines throughout the UK hospital network to maintain our commitment to vital medical care continuity. This guaranteed no disruption to the supply of our medicines for our customers and patients throughout this uncertain and trying period.

Our customers and the new entity

Our main priority is to limit the impact on our customers as much as possible. From the 1st January 2021 the only aspect that will change is our contact details; the team who have always managed your orders and the distributors who have delivered our medicines to you, will remain the same. Furthermore, our sales and promotion team, led by Véronique Van Ranst, Head of the UK Markets, continue to support you and will be on hand to deal with any queries you may have.

New contact details

From 1st January 2021 please use the following contact details if you contact us from the UK:

Eumedica Pharma Ltd
8 Northumberland Avenue, WC2N 5BY, London, United Kingdom
Phone +44 (0) 20 8444 3377 | Fax +44 (0) 20 8444 6866
Email : e-orders@eumedica.co.uk | Website : http://www.eumedica.co.uk

The creation of Eumedica Pharma Ltd. is another step forward to allow us to continue providing a first-class service to our customers and ensuring medical care continuity in the UK.

Coronavirus and Eumedica: an update on our activities

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

In the current climate of the Coronavirus pandemic, Eumedica is dedicated to carry out its mission: “Ensuring Medical Care Continuity”. This is only possible through the continued hard-work and dedication of our colleagues. This is why the health and safety of our colleagues is of the utmost importance, now more than ever. Where feasible, we have implemented homeworking. Some of what we do needs to be done on site; we therefore constantly monitor the situation and are taking appropriate measures to ensure the safety of our people.

What Eumedica is doing in-house

Providing a safe working environment for all of our colleagues is our top-priority. To achieve this, we have reduced the number of people on site to the absolute minimum required and have implemented home-based working for all other colleagues. We are raising awareness internally around increased hygiene measures, strengthening our disinfection plan, cancelling all non-essential business travel, and keeping a minimum of 1.5m distance. With regards to our clients, we maintain contact using video-conferencing, telephone and email. We are always available to answer our clients queries!

In a matter of just a few days, we have all embraced the new digital tools to keep our teams working for you!

Medicines distribution, a vital service

As a key distributor of medicines, we are a vital service for the population across many countries. Consequently, it is crucial to continue our work so patients can receive their treatment on time. All our teams work tirelessly to maintain the supply of medicines for these patients. Therefore, we guarantee to remain operational and continue all our GDP and GMP activities and to manage all orders and requests. Meanwhile, we will be dynamic to any changes made by the authorities on a local, continental or worldwide scale, and act accordingly.

In these challenging times, we would like to thank all of our colleagues who are working hard to deliver vital medicines to patients. While we make sure the conditions are as safe as possible, we are proud to see such flexibility and cohesion to fulfil our mission: “Ensuring Medical Care Continuity”!

Eumedica: licensed and certified distributor of Pactosafe 4.0

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

For over two years, Eumedica has been a certified and licensed PAXXO partner for distributing the Pactosafe 4.0 system in Belgium, Luxembourg and northern France (Ardennes, Meurthe-et-Moselle, Meuse and Nord).

This equipment is crucial to health care staff as it provides a safer working environment, preventing the exposure and consequences related to cytotoxic drug contamination and inhalation. At the same time, it allows health care staff to carry out their duties in a hygienic working environment.

Pactosafe 4.0 was developed by the world leaders in the field of waste management to prevent health care personnel from the exposure of hazardous drugs as well as infection control and to avoid odour. It has been developed to quickly store and tightly pack contaminated waste without any extra handling and therefore preventing contamination. Pactosafe is 100% airtight and the bag cassette is permeation tested for cytotoxic drugs which prevents health care staff from hazardous exposure.

Used worldwide within health care facilities, the new Pactosafe 4.0 offers easier use and maintenance. Furthermore, it is also more eco-friendly as it uses 40% less materials.

For more information about this unique equipment, or to arrange a free demo at your premises, please feel free to contact us.

Serialisation-printer-eumedica-2019

A new serialization printing line

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Remember back in February the Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) came into force in the European Union. Eumedica is thrilled to announce that a new serialization printing line has been setup to enlarge the  service range we propose to  the pharmaceutical industry.

What does the FMD imply?

Back to basics first. This directive imposes amongst others a unique serial number printed on the box on all products prescribed in the European zone.

he goal: limit to the maximum the access to counterfeit products on the market as this represents a major risk for the patients’ health.

On every packaging, a data matrix and other required data must be printed:

  • The product code (code GTIN)
  • The unique and random serial number
  • The lot number
  • The expiration date


What we offer

To help you face this new challenge in our industry, we have invested in a new printing line specifically set up to comply with FMD requirements. Thanks to this equipment  our team of experts can now provide you with a flexible solution to meet your needs and expectations.

In addition, we can also:

  • manage the status check of the serial numbers
  • decommission and/or recommission unique serial numbers


Are you looking for a new partner for printing your packaging? Do you need further information? Feel free to contact us right now!
