In 2018, Instituto BioChimico joined Cristália Group as an affiliated company. The company was established 93 years ago in the neighborhood of Cordovil, Rio de Janeiro, by a renowned pharmacologist who decided to build a pharmaceutical company dedicated to antibiotics and inhaled anesthetics.
In 1998, BioChimico went through a significant restructuring, transferring its headquarters to Penedo district, in the city of Itatiaia, also in the state of Rio de Janeiro, counting on new facilities and state-of-the-art equipment. Intending to expand availability and to add speed in deliveries, BioChimico established a partnership with Laboratório Cristália, headquartered in Itapira (SP), and a benchmark in hospital products distribution in the Country.
