FluoroMed, L.P. manufactures high-purity
perfluorocarbons (PFCs) for use in medical applications. Since our inception
in 1996, our mission has been to supply fluorocarbons that meet the requirements
of our customers and regulatory agencies world-wide.
do this using a unique combination of patented technology, extensive capability
in fluorine chemistry, experienced Quality Systems and Regulatory Affairs personnel,
and successful business entrepreneurs leading the company.
FluoroMed was founded in 1996 as
a joint venture between two well-established companies in the business of fluorine
chemistry: Fluoro-Seal, Ltd. and Exfluor Research
Corp. At the time, a Fortune
250 chemical company was looking to divest their fledgling operations in the
production of fluorocarbons for medical applications. The owners of Fluoro-Seal
and Exfluor recognized the potential of the growing needs of the medical community
for high-quality fluorocarbons, and joined with Webb Bailey, PhD, our V.P. and
Technical Director, to purchase the business and establish FluoroMed, L.P.
Since that time, FluoroMed has rapidly
established a reputation as a reliable supplier of high-purity fluorocarbons
manufactured in accordance with drug and medical-device regulations world-wide.
Our chemicals are used as active pharmaceutical ingredients, drug processing
aids; finished medical-devices; medical-device components, and biological
processing reagents. We are keenly aware of the cGMP requirements for manufacturing
all of these different types of components, and have a comprehensive quality
system in place to ensure compliance to all aspects of the pharmaceutical and
device regulations in the
USA, Canada, the European Union, and Japan.
Fluoro-Seal and Exfluor had long
enjoyed a mutually beneficial partnership in the world of fluorine chemistry,
working together to develop a commercially-viable source of on-site fluorine
production, thus freeing both companies from dependence on outsiders for the
key material required to do this business - elemental fluorine. This is a great
advantage that they also brought to the FluoroMed business.
The founders of FluoroMed collectively
have over 100 years of fluorine expertise, hundreds of publications in scientific
journals and are responsible for over 50 U.S. Patents in the field of fluorine
chemistry including United States Patent 5,053,536 which has become the industry
standard for preparing perfluorocarbons by direct fluorination.
