Ch Hero

Guerbet Switzerland

GUERBET has been an active presence on the Swiss radiological scene for many decades now. It all started in the early 60s, and more precisely in 1963 when the company Max Ritter Pharma began distributing GUERBET contrast media. This changed in the 80s, when the GUERBET group established a direct presence in some European countries. On July 1, 1987 the Swiss subsidiary, GUERBET AG was founded with its sales reps’ team composed of former Max Ritter Pharma employees. The first gadolinium-based contrast agent was launched shortly afterwards.

Our history and future

A clear vision since the very beginning

It all began with Marcel Guerbet’s discovery of the first iodinated organic contrast medium in 1901. The company was later founded in 1926 by André Guerbet. Guerbet’s innovative workforce has since left its mark on medical imaging technologies and contrast media, taking the company to the next level. Today, Guerbet sells a comprehensive range of products suitable for X-Ray and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).

Guerbet recently launched a strategic initiative to develop a new business based on digital technologies and artificial intelligence with two objectives: first, to improve the productivity of radiologists, e.g. with diagnostic assistance tools, and second, to obtain a tumor tissue characterization through imaging to better guide treatments or even eventually replace a biopsy.
