We guarantee the highest standards.

For more than 25 years we have developed, produced and distributed medical devices of various risk classes in accordance with the European directive and legislation. When working with our suppliers and collaboration partners, we insist upon the same extremely high quality requirements that we place on our products. In addition to legally required monitoring measures we also conduct unannounced inspections and regular audits. We don’t merely rely on certificates but also require compliance with additional standards such as pharmacopoeia and GMP. Our detailed and customer-focused QM system at ALBOMED GmbH was first certified in 1997 and has been continuously adapted to increasing requirements, particularly those in relation to CE certification. Our quality management system is subject to regular internal and external audits.

The continuous further development of our processes, adaptation to market changes, the quickest possible implementation of growing statutory requirements and not least the personal dedication of all our employees ensure that we offer products of a consistently excellent quality at the highest level.

ALBOMED GmbH is certified according to DIN EN ISO 13485.

What our employes say about ALBOMED:

Image of Johanna Fischer

I have been working at ALBOMED as a Product Manager in Ophthalmology since October 2020. At ALBOMED, I particularly like the family atmosphere between colleagues and superiors, as well as the opportunity to build up extensive knowledge and actively participate in shaping the company's activities.

— Johanna Fischer

Since 2014 I have been working at ALBOMED as a Management and Marketing Assistant. What I particularly like is the broad range of tasks and that I can really make a difference here. I can tell right away what an impact my work has. In addition, decisions are made quickly and confidently here, and I have the feeling that my opinion counts.

— Rosie Grünberger-Aicher

My time already started with the professional training and the first steps of ALBOMED, from a distributor to a manufacturer of medical products. So I was able to experience and shape the development in all its details. You can say that no year was like the other and it went steadily uphill. From the one-man band to today's orchestra, everyone is absorbed in their role and contributes to the success of all. The opportunities for personal and professional development are encouraged in all facets and as an employee of the "first hour", I am pleased to be able to continue to write the success story "ALBOMED".

Social commitment

Social commitment is important to us – Ärzte der Welt

Since 2018 ALBOMED has supported Ärzte der Welt (Doctors of the world) with a project in the Afar region in Ethiopia. Ärzte der Welt helped to ensure a sustainable access to basic medical care and provided information about the grave consequences of female circumcision. Here you will find more information about Ärzte der Welt: Since this project came to an end, we decided in 2021 to give support to another organization.

2021 – EinDollarBrille

Our support went to EinDollarBrille e.V. (OneDollarGlasses) with projects all around the world! Many millions of people around the globe need glasses but cannot afford them. The consequences are far-reaching: children cannot learn, adults cannot work and provide for their families. OneDollarGlasses raises awareness worldwide, creates jobs by training skilled workers and thus provides a basis for basic optical care. In this way, affected people get access to free eye tests and individually fitted, low-cost glasses. If you would like to follow our example, you can find more information under

2022 – Neven Subotic Stiftung (Foundation)

In 2022 we have donated to the NEVEN SUBOTIC STIFTUNG (Foundation). They build wells and sanitary facilities for the people in project regions in Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania. 2 billion people, or nearly one in three people in the world, do not have access to a safe drinking water supply. 1.7 billion people do not have access to basic sanitation. So we see that we are facing one of the greatest global health challenges of our day. Diarrheal diseases caused by contaminated drinking water, lack of sanitation and poor hygiene are among the leading causes of death among children under five worldwide. With the 100% WASH project, the foundation enables the necessary conditions for health, education and a self-determined future through the construction of drinking water wells and sanitation facilities. The foundation aligns their work with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (see Goal 1: No Poverty, Goal 4: Quality Education, Goal 6: Clean Water and Sanitation). With our donation, we enable 40 people to have immediate access to clean water, thus providing the basis for health and a self-determined life in dignity. More information under

2022 – Aktion Deutschland Hilft

We have been supporting the Aktion Deutschland Hilft organization with a quarterly donation since 2022. The donations help to quickly distribute urgently needed relief supplies such as medicines, blankets and food in the event of disasters. Relief efforts include for example the Ukraine crisis and the flood disaster.
