Our role in the society

APL (Apotek Produktion & Laboratorier AB) is a state-owned company with a public policy assignment to develop, manufacture and supply unlicensed sterile and non-sterile pharmacy compounding for patients with special needs, both as individually tailored extemporaneous medicines as well as batch manufactured stock preparations. The purpose is for patients with special needs, who are unable to use the medicines available on the market, to be able to access the right treatment. This is done in close collaboration with specialists, prescribers and authorities. The assignment also comprises preparedness to maintain operations in times of crisis and ultimately war.

We also offer contract services (CDMO) within the Life Science industry and are an established supplier for development, commercial manufacturing and analyses.


APL wants to contribute to better health, a good environment, sound economics and a sustainable society. Our employees and other stakeholders are our most important resources. We work with a long-term view to ensure our manufactured products are of good quality, as this is a prerequisite for safe and effective medicines.

Patient safety

APL develops and manufactures extemporaneous preparations and stock manufacturing for actors in the pharmacy market and healthcare services, for better medicine use and increased patient safety. We also offer high quality development, laboratory and manufacturing services to companies in the pharmaceutical sector.
