When it comes to health, you can't take any chances. That's why we provide solutions for any challenge. Supply for any demand. Including medicines that are difficult or nearly impossible to obtain. Dexter Pharmaceuticals, a division of Europort by B&S, continues where others stop. By supplying shortage medicine to healthcare providers whose patients rely on them.
There are many reasons why a medicine may be in short supply, from economic developments
to supply chain issues. Since 2010, the shortage of medicines has steadily increased. As a
result, health care professionals have had to alter their treatment plans, sacrificing the best
available option for their patient. We believe that every patient has the right to a better life and
should have access to the medicines they need. Dexter was founded to make this a reality.
Europort Pharmaceuticals joined the B&S family in 2019. Their extensive customer network and global focus made them a natural partner. While Europort sources and distributes all types of medical supplies, from equipment to OTCs and pharmaceuticals, to the EU, the Middle East, Asia, and Africa, they also supply shortage medicines. By establishing Dexter, they were able to devote an entire business unit to fulfilling the demand for hard-to-obtain medicines.
The close collaboration with Farmanco, an initiative by the KNMP, and the Duch Health Inspection, allows Dexter to monitor shortage medicines and determine suitable substitutes and alternatives. As physicians submit their demands, Dexter takes care of the supply.
By leveraging the extensive Europort network, Dexter is able to source shortage medicines from reliable suppliers in Europe, the United States, Canada, Japan, and Australia. The close relationship with the Dutch Health Inspection allows Dexter to obtain non-registered alternatives and make them available to healthcare providers who need them.
Increased continuity of care
Healthcare professionals can rely on Dexter to support their long-term treatment plans. When medicines remain in short supply for a long period of time, Dexter's flexible sourcing and distribution mechanisms guarantee a reliable stock and on-time delivery of medicines.
Reliable access to shortage medicines
Hospitals and pharmacies have access to the medicines they need with full confidence in their quality and safety. They receive them when they need them, thanks to Dexter's extensive knowledge of and experience with the medical supply chain.
Healthcare professionals reduce their workload
University medical centres, local hospitals, and pharmacies in the Netherlands and Belgium unburden their staff by leaving the paperwork to Dexter. By working directly with the Dutch Health Inspection, Dexter can manage all the necessary paperwork and approvals for obtaining the needed medicines through its network.
