Over the course of its journey in the country in the last two decades, the company has introduced several novel and important products.

The company has also been instrumental in patient awareness campaigns such as ‘Save Your Lungs Kandy’, and in conducting skill workshops and research projects to improve Continuous Medical Education (CME) of professionals and technicians by collaborating with Sri Lanka College of Pulmonologists.
