2020 Christmas Charitable Donations


This year has brought us unprecedented challenges and we come to the end of the year reflecting on how it has impacted us all.  The charitable sector is one area that has had to work even harder this year to keep their support functions in place and for this reason Bowmed Ibisqus has decided to support two local charities with donations this Christmas in the hope that it will make a difference to the residents in our community.

The first charity, Nightingale House Hospice is an independent charitable hospice based in Wrexham which provides specialist palliative care to patients with specific life limiting illness living within the catchment area.  The hospice needs around £3.5 million each year and anyone wishing to donate can do so via the link below.

Our second charity is the Wrexham Foodbank which is working tirelessly this festive season to bring food parcels to local people in crisis alongside support on cooking, budgeting, and holiday hunger projects.  For more information on this charity please take a look at their website.

May we take this opportunity to wish everyone a Safe and Merry Christmas.

Labetalol 100mg/20ml Ampoules


The launch of Labetalol IV by Bowmed Ibisqus has brought necessary reinforcement of the UK supply chain for this critical hospital medicine following periods of shortage during 2019.

This is the first product to be brought to the UK market following our new distribution partnership with S.A.L.F. S.p.A.  For over 90 years S.A.L.F. have brought essential medicines across a variety of therapeutic forms to the Italian market and we are excited to develop this new European partnership in the coming months and years.

This product follows the original and familiar product format of 100mg/20ml and is packaged in clear glass ampoules for ease of visual examination.  The ampoules have been affixed with labels in a longitudinal manner so that the product details can be viewed in the same field of vision, in accordance with MHRA Best Practice guidelines.  In addition, we have been able to avoid a plastic tray component in favour of a secure recyclable cardboard tray.

The product has been listed with AAH under order code LAB0138K.  If you would like to discuss a pricing arrangement or stock availability for Labetalol IV or any of our other products, please contact us directly on +44 (0)845 6436 703 or email us
