EXPERT INTERVIEW WITH DR. MICHAEL PFEIL

DR. MICHAEL PFEIL
PhD, Site Head of Merz Pharmaceuticals’ state-of-the-art production facility at Dessau, Germany

Michael Pfeil has been involved in the manufacture of XEOMIN® from day 1.
‘I was involved from the very beginning, in every decision: how to grow the bacteria and how to purify the toxin, which technologies and processes to use, how to organise it all. Now I’m proud to look out of my office window and see how far we’ve come’.

EACH VIAL CONTAINS OUR ENTHUSIASM AND SINGLE-MINDED COMMITMENT TO QUALITY

‘I was involved from the very beginning, in every decision: how to grow the bacteria and how to purify the toxin, which technologies and processes to use, how to organise it all. Now I’m proud to look out of my office window and see how far we’ve come’.

Setting XEOMIN® apart is the complex and labour-intensive manufacturing process that removes the complexing proteins to make a highly purified product. From the customised equipment specifically designed for the site and this type of manufacturing to the safety and environmental protection standards that are higher than regulations require, Merz has demonstrated their uncompromising attitude to quality.

From first to last, Dr Pfeil and his dedicated team are committed to producing a high-quality product, following their self-imposed standards, as they believe the patient deserves nothing less. The site at Dessau was designed specifically for the manufacture of a highly purified product and every stage of the production process can be seen through the glass walls that surround the manufacturing area.

Far from being hidden, the state-of-the-art technology and manufacturing process, of which Dr Pfeil and his team are understandably proud, are on display for all to see.
