Medical Cannabis Products: How Much Really Gets There?

More and more companies and entrepreneurs operating in the field of Cannabis realize that while the market for ‘flowers’ and ‘extracts’ is significant (and likely to grow), the true ‘holy grail’ lies in the area of cannabis-based therapies.

Among the many questions faced by any company developing a new drug, probably the most complicated are those related to the behavior of their drug in the human body. This is the field of ADME: Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism and Excretion, or, in other words, “How much really gets there?” and where is actually “There”?

One of the tools for obtaining information related to the ADME behavior of the drug, is to determine the levels of compounds of interest in various biological tissues and fluids – i.e., Bioanalytics. In pre-clinical (animal) studies, this can include the analyses of plasma, urine, feces, skin, internal organs and brain. Clinical (human) studies usually include plasma, urine and feces. One of the greatest challenges of determining the levels of cannabinoids in the body, is the highly sensitive detection levels required.   

Analyst Research Laboratories, with its more than 2 decades of experience in the Pharmaceutical, Bioanalytical and Analytical arena, is employing this vast experience to the area of Medical Cannabis.

With in-house validated Bioanalytical and Analytical methods for a variety of cannabinoids, species and tissues, Analyst is routinely supporting its customers from Israel and abroad in their Pre-Clinical and Clinical studies.

If you are developing a new formulation or product, planning a pre-clinical or clinical trial, we will be more than happy to discuss your needs and see if we can help you.

New ODU Production Site In Sibiu

The new production hall was completed right on time at the end of September last year and successfully approved by local authorities. The move into the brand-new ODU Romania facility in Sibiu was successful and a smart one. The new building offers far more production space (+ 30% in phase 1), with short paths and a clear structure, providing a great deal of flexibility and room for further expansion.

„One of the challenges was to design our very first green field production site outside of Germany,” explains Adrian Costin, Managing Director of ODU Romania in Sibiu. “It worked out 100 % and the production site is working 100 % within the international production network of the ODU Group.” The ODU Group is one of the leading international suppliers of connection systems, data and signal transmission systems. For more than 75 years, ODU has been developing electrical connectors, an essential part of our day-to-day life. Without connectors, no smartphone, appliance or medical equipment would be able to function. Without connectors, cars could not start and industry would not work automatically. Connectors are in numerous applications and areas and it takes just one close look to see that above all, connector technology must be reliable.

The original ODU location in Sibiu was set-up in 2006 operating under the name ODU Romania Manufacturing S.R.L. The new site is situated very close to the international airport of Sibiu, easily accessible and close to the city center. More than 550 people work for ODU in Sibiu.

The company is continuously evolving into a competence center for connectors and cable assembly. Thanks to innovation, continuous improvement and high quality production processes, the manufacturing unit is expanding.

The new and modern production unit in the new industrial park in Sibiu covers the size of 48.000 qm². The production equipment is according to the latest ODU standards securing the high quality standard. It includes social spaces, a cafeteria and 120 parking spaces. „For ODU a good workplace represents an environment where people can grow and the word “team” has a deeper meaning. The values promoted are an open organizational culture and personal development“, says Costin.

ODU is an employer that recognizes and awards professional performance in a company that provides safety and supports individual needs accordingly to governing principles: reliability, equity, responsibility and quality are reference points for cooperation within the company.

The ODU Group headquarter is located in Mühldorf am Inn (Bavaria). From there, the company sells its products all over the world, since „Made in Germany” is an important feature on foreign markets.

Besides the Mühldorf location, ODU has three other international production units in, San Diego (USA), Shanghai (China) and Tijuana (Mexico).

The distribution network includes ten sales companies in Germany, France, Italy, Denmark, Sweden, Great Britain, China, Japan, Korea and the USA. ODU has over 2.300 employees globally and generates annual revenues of 200 million euros.

FOBA showcasing at Intec and MD&M West

FOBA Laser Marking + Engraving is attending two international trade shows in February to present innovative direct part marking solutions: At both the Intec in Leipzig/Germany (Feb. 5 – 8, 2019) and the MD&M West in Anaheim/USA (Feb. 5 – 7, 2019), a FOBA M2000 laser marking system will be presented on-site at the booth.

The trade show presentation also includes the recently introduced technology FOBA Mosaic™ for fixture-less laser marking. FOBA Mosaic™ works with a camera that is integrated directly in the marking head. The vision-system creates a view of the entire marking field without optical distortion and enables an automated laser mark-alignment. Expensive product fixtures therefore become unnecessary, which means essential cost-savings.

The showcased laser marking machine FOBA M2000-P will be equipped with a 20 Watt fiber laser and the integrated software MarkUS 2.12, also including FOBA Mosaic™. At the Intec FOBA will also present the FOBA Y.1000, a powerful 100 Watt laser marker for the integration in high-throughput production lines that specifically complies with high-speed manufacturing requirements.

Apart from the live presentations at the booth, FOBA is also hosting two lectures at the Intec: On February 7th, Dr. Faycal Benayad-Cherif will be speaking about the innovations offered by FOBA Mosaic™ marking solution (2:30 p.m., lecture in English language). On February 8th, medical market expert Christian Söhner will provide information about UDI-compliant laser marking of medical products (11:20 a.m., lecture in German language).

Read the Interview with Shannon D. Brown III, CEO and Managing Director of OncoBeta® GmbH directly at:

The global incidence of non-melanoma skin cancers has been drastically increasing over the past decades. Depending on the source, it is estimated that there are over 5 million non-melanoma skin cancer cases reported globally each year. To serve the increasing medical need for innovative therapies in this field and to improve the quality of patients’ lives, OncoBeta® GmbH has developed its innovative Rhenium-SCT® which only require a single application, applied in one single session with excellent aesthetic outcomes.

About the Rhenium-SCT® (Skin Cancer Therapy)

The Rhenium-SCT® is a non-invasive, painless therapy generally providing for unparalleled aesthetic results, even in cases otherwise considered difficult to treat. The Rhenium-SCT® utilizes the radioisotope Rhenium-188 in an epidermal application with optimal properties for the treatment of NMSCs (non-melanoma skin cancers). Due to the specially designed devices and accessories the Rhenium-SCT® compound never comes in direct contact with the patients’ skin and the application is safe and simple for the applying physician. Most cases of non-melanoma skin cancers (Basal Cell Carcinomas and Squamous Cell Carcinomas) can be treated using the Rhenium-SCT® with a single application, applied in one single session. Scar-free healing of the treated lesion area and the regeneration of healthy tissue occurs usually within a few weeks after treatment.
