Biopharm is an international company based in Hendy, South Wales, UK. Established originally in 1812, it moved to its current base in 1984. Biopharm is the first leech farm of its kind and we are innovators in the cultivation of the medicinal leech, currently producing the majority of leeches used in modern medicine worldwide.
Biopharm is the pioneer in medical leech provision and has nurtured the renaissance of leeches in modern surgery. Leeches today are used in plastic and reconstructive surgery worldwide, as well as successfully ongoing research into relieving symptoms of osteoarthritis. Their use in veterinary surgery, especially in polycythaemia vera has been particularly successful.
Our leeches are maintained in as sterile and pure environment as is possible; we continually invest in te
chnology which includes ultraviolet light sterilization, reverse osmosis, activated carbon absorption and foam fractionating. These processes ensure that Biopharm Leeches are of the highest clinical standard.
