Nephron Pharmaceuticals Corporation and the Nephron 503B Registered Outsourcing Division is a privately owned global leader in the manufacturing of generic drug products, over-the-counter (OTC) medications and medical devices. The Company is headquartered in West Columbia, SC. All Nephron products are proudly made in the USA! Nephron specializes in blow-fill-seal (BFS) manufacturing, a technology that allows a vial of medication to be formed, filled and sealed in a continuous process without human intervention in a sterile, enclosed area.
As an industry leader in product safety and quality, Nephron continuously pursues product enhancements, such as easy to identify vial shapes, embossed lettering and color-coded packaging. In 2001, prior to FDA’s 2004 mandate, we led the market in the development and release of individually wrapped and bar-coded medication. Individually wrapped and bar-coded vials are a major patient safety feature and are now standard treatments in the bedside safety practices of US hospitals. The Company also supplies products that are in critical shortage to hospitals across the United States.
Nephron Pharmaceuticals Corporation has longstanding relationships with major drug wholesalers to distribute its products among retail pharmacies, mail order pharmacies, hospitals, home care companies, and long term care facilities. Nephron has a dedicated sales force that covers all fifty states and Puerto Rico, and has additional sales channels throughout South America, the Middle East, and Europe. Nephron exists to provide top-quality, affordable medications to everyone.
Nephron is an equal employment opportunity employer and does not discriminate against employees or job applicants on the basis of race, religion, color, sex, sexual orientation, age, national origin, mental or physical disability of a qualified individual, veteran or military status, pregnancy, marital status, familial status, genetic information, or any other consideration made unlawful by applicable federal, state or local law.
We are proud to be a woman-owned business that leads the world in the manufacturing of generic respiratory medications. Twenty years ago, the FDA approved our first generic respiratory medication and since then we've been committed to bringing safe, effective, and affordable medications to patients in need. Our mission to improve patient outcomes has fueled our commitment to innovation, quality, and service.
We've invested in a state-of-the-art facility and industry-leading technology to expand our capacity to help patients. We've opened an outsourcing division to help health care facilities that need 503B compounded drugs, often during drug shortages. Our new facility also equips us to develop and bring new ophthalmic and injectable medications to market.
We've been leading the industry in safety and quality since our beginnings. Just a few years after we introduced our first drug, we led the market in safety practices related to wrapping and barcoding medications. Now, this approach is standard practice at U.S. hospitals. Today, we're proud to use completely automated manufacturing, packaging, and distributing systems to minimize contamination.
Our people are the key to our success. We are proud to have the top minds in the industry who are committed to serving health professionals and patients. We understand our responsibility to serve extends outside our facility, and even beyond the patient bedside, which is why we also prioritize giving back to our community and the next generation of innovators.
