Manufacture and quality
Although all substances are certified and originate from selected suppliers, further analytical testing during each manufacturing stage – from raw material to finished remedy – is conducted by the control laboratory. Chemical, physico-chemical, microbiological and pharmacognostic analyses are part of routine quality control of the starting materials. It includes testing of purity, identity and content as well as the determination of physical parameters.
The high quality standard of products manufactured by Dr. Reckeweg is due to a manufacturing process based on the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia (HAB), the Deutsche Arzneibuch (German Pharmacopeia) and the Europäische Arzneibuch (European Pharmacopeia) and following all national and international production guidelines. High-quality products, especially if they are manufactured according to traditional methods, require the most advanced filling and packing technologies. Fully automated filling and packing lines prevent any physical contact between staff and product, thus guaranteeing absolutely hygienic drugs. Combined, all these measures in manufacturing and quality control provide medical practitioners and patients with preparations of reproducible high quality.
Tradition and modern technologies in line
High-class quality products, in particular if they are produced according to traditional procedures, require most modern filling and packaging technologies. Fully automated filling- and packaging lines avoid any physical contact between staff and product thus guaranteeing absolutely hygienic production of the remedy.
The system of quality control at Pharmazeutische Fabrik Dr. Reckeweg & Co. GmbH is based on strict raw material inspection, extensive in-process verifications and final inspections.
These controls consist of inspection of manufacturing protocols, regulating all intermediate stages including raw materials and the monitoring of filling and packaging. Emphasis during those controls is put on the systematic in-process analysis of the raw materials (e. g. measuring of temperature, time of mixing, trituration duration and alcohol contents during bulk goods manufacture, documentation of the production process) since the detection of active ingredients in finished products of homeopathic remedies is impossible after a certain stage of dilution.
Part of the quality assurance system is also the documentation of all production- and testing protocols which are stored as batch-related reports for a period of more than five years. In addition, Dr. Reckeweg conducts stability studies on a regular basis in order to guarantee a consistent quality of the preparations. This interaction of manufacturing process and quality control provides practitioners and patients with products of a reproducible high quality standard.
The manufacture of homeopathic remedies
Mother tinctures, D- and C-Potencies-
At Dr. Reckeweg, potentization – the decisive production step solely applied in homeopathy – is deliberately performed manually, i. e. without using any mechanical aids. Manual succession in accordance with Hahnemann’s multi vessel system has a long tradition, a tradition that has been tried and trusted and thus will be preserved.
