The GBA Laboratory Group is one of the largest providers of analytical services in the fields of pharmaceuticals, food, environment, and consumer goods. Since it was established in 1989, the group has continually grown and now can provide an even wider range of services at 12 different sites in Germany and Austria.
In June 2016, ABF Pharma has announced that the GBA Laboratory Group would join the company as a partner and shareholder. In addition to the well-established expertise of ABF Pharmaceutical Services GmbH (Austria) in the production and global logistics of clinical trial supplies, QP services, and central laboratory services, now we can also provide you with support for the entire value chain in the pharmaceutical sector. This includes a comprehensive range of analytical laboratory services, stability tests, and regulatory support at the locations in Martinsried, Gräfelfing, and Neu-Ulm (Germany). In February 2017, the spectrum was rounded out with addition of Pharmacelsus GmbH in Saarbrücken (Germany), with their services in the field of preclinical research.
In order to structure the organization in a way that is more transparent our customers, the decision was made to rename the company into a single brand called “GBA Pharma”, effective August 31st, 2017. Dr. Elisabeth Lackner, currently the Managing Director of ABF in Vienna, will assume the position as Managing Director of “GBA Pharma” and thus also the Pharmaceutical Division of the GBA Laboratory.
GBA Pharma will be the legal successor to the individual analytical service providers within the GBA Laboratory Group. All of the contracts that have been signed with the individual partners in this group (e.g. NDAs, QA agreements, framework contracts, service agreements) retain their validity.
End of the year, the laboratory that is presently located at Leibnizstrasse 9, Neu-Ulm (formerly Phytos) will move into a modern laboratory building at Ernst-Abbé-Strasse 40, 89079 Ulm. We are certain that this merger will enable us to offer you even more effective and comprehensive service in the field of pharmaceuticals and medicinal products.
