Golden health

Health is worth its weight in gold ¬– and not only in a figurative sense. Precious metals are physically used in various forms and compounds in the pharmaceutical industry. Be it in diagnostics, implants, catalysts or medical devices. They hold many functions in the pharmaceutical industry due to their special properties, stability and low toxicity. 


Our experts will be happy to advise you on the options we offer pharmaceutical companies for recycling precious metals. 

Diagnostic tests and test strips

Some diagnostic tests use precious metals in the form of nanoparticles, which are used to diagnose diseases or pregnancies. Test strips also contain precious metals.


Crucibles are used in the pharmaceutical industry as well.  


Of course, catalysts also play a role in the pharmaceutical industry. These are used in the synthesis of active pharmaceutical ingredients to accelerate chemical reactions and obtain specific products.
