Medichem facility

Medichem started the regular production of Chlorhexidine and its derivatives in 1985.

Currently, Medichem manufactures Chlorhexidine base, Digluaconate 20% solution, Diacetate and Dihydrochloride in our Celrà plant in Spain. Medichem chlorhexidine products conform to all major pharmacopoeias. In addition, Medichem now offers Chlorhexidine High-Purity, which exceeds ICH guidelines for limits on impurities and related substances, allowing for greater stability and longer shelf-life in customers' finished products.


We are a cGMP compliant company with a long and successful history of inspections. Our plants have been regularly inspected by the FDA since 1985. The last four consecutive inspections in Spain (1999, 2002, 2006 and 2009) and the last one in Malta (April 2012) had no "Form 483" issued (no observations were noted). Medichem is ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified.
