Capacity

Expansion so that supply continues to meet your demand

Generating one third of the global market, GE Healthcare already has the world’s largest X-ray API manufacturing facility.

With rapid patient and procedural growth, demand for X-ray contrast media has increased by 40% in the last 5 years.

So we have expanded our network, investing over $65 million to increase capacity from 2013 to 2016.

Both primary API production and secondary filling and finishing capacity increased by 50% from 2013 to 2016:

  – Additional investments are in progress to take this up by a further 50% by 2019.

Continuity

Thorough contingency planning to minimize risk to your contrast supply

GE Healthcare contrast media products are used in more than 70 million procedures a year.
That is equivalent to two patients being injected every second

Maintaining supply is also a priority:

We have four manufacturing sites

  • All owned and managed by GE Healthcare for greatest control
  • With multiple suppliers for security of iodine supply
