Munster-based industrial gas group Westfalen AG is highlighting its provision of gases and services to the pharmaceuticals and healthcare sector, at events in its native Germany.

The company’s Industrial Gas division produces a broad range of specialty gases for applications in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medicine industries.

Westfalen AG demonstrated some of these capabilities at the BIOTECHNICA event in Hannover last month, including its newly developed Pharmagase gas mixture. The company also supplies liquid helium for MRI machine applications.

At the event in Hannover, Westfalen put particular emphasis on its freezing provisions for cryopreservation purposes in the biotechnology sector. The company is especially advanced in this area, through its dedicated refrigeration business arm.

Building on its participation in Hannover, Westfalen will be showcasing its services again later this month, at the Medica event in Dusseldorf from 18th-21st November.

Presenting at Stand B11 in Hall 11, Westfalen will be demonstrating its wide range of pharmaceuticals and specialty gases for therapy and diagnosis in clinics, doctor’s surgeries and in residential care environments.

These include liquid and gaseous medical oxygen, nitrous oxide anaesthesia, accessories such as oxygen concentrators and oxygen tanks, and pure gases and gas mixtures – including standardized test gases like blood gas.

Watch-out for gasworld’s interview of the month with Gerhard Schlueter, Technical Director of Westfalen AG, in March next year!
