  • Quality: all work must comply with in-company standards, customers' requirements and official regulations. It is essential that all employees display appropriate attitudes (in terms of ethics and values) to ensure that quality is maintained and errors are dealt with openly.
  • Knowledge, technical portfolio: all the techniques required to analyze active pharmaceutical ingredients are available at Drug Substance Analytics in Zofingen. For each of these techniques, adequate numbers of experts must be available to handle more complex tasks and troubleshooting related to the techniques.
  • Interaction, communication: the Analytics Department interfaces with numerous activities and entities. It is therefore particularly important that laboratory assistants cooperate and communicate effectively across departmental boundaries.
