To ensure that patients can continue to use Santen’s products without any safety concerns, Santen pays meticulous attention to the performance and design of its manufacturing facilities and factory lines. The Company has established its own quality criteria featuring higher quality levels than those required by relevant laws and regulations.
For instance, in producing eye drops we use water that has been purified for injections. For operators working in sterile environments and for visual inspectors, whose roles are particularly important, we have established a rigorous in-house qualification system. In this way, we thoroughly decrease the risk of errors throughout the production process, from selection of raw materials to the final stage of product testing.
