Upon turning 18, Bluepharma edits the facsimile version of the Farmacopéa Lisbonense


In partnership with the University of Coimbra, on December 10, 2019, Bluepharma launched the sixth work of a collection of ten "Portuguese Pharmacopoeias", on the Grand Floor of the Joanina Library of the University of Coimbra.

As it completes its 18th year, Bluepharma is publishing the facsimile version of the Farmacopoéa Lisbonense, obtained from an original that is in the collection of the University Library, and thanks to the relevant research work of João Rui Pita.

"By republishing this collection of pharmacopoeias, we want to contribute to the praise of the fundamental role of these works in the defense of the quality and standardisation of pharmaceutical processes, as well as in the very important role that they had in the universalisation of knowledge" explains Paulo Barradas.

"Bluepharma has also contributed to the dissemination of knowledge and the improvement in patient care, through the network of partners and customers that it has been building around the world, and we owe them here a word of gratitude for the trust and good relationship they have had with Bluepharma in our journey together," reinforces Paulo Barradas Rebelo, President of Bluepharma.

João Rui Pita, professor of the Faculty of Pharmacy of the University of Coimbra, was in charge of the presentation of this work. Also present were Vice-Rector for Culture and Open Science of the University of Coimbra, Delfim Ferreira Leão, the Director of the General Library of the University of Coimbra, João Gouveia Monteiro, and the President of Bluepharma, Paulo Barradas Rebelo.
