Aurora Pharmaceutical, Inc. is a veterinary pharmaceutical product development and manufacturing company, headquartered in Northfield, MN.

We started enhancing the Altren packaging – and were FDA approved for a convenient 150 mL package –two years later after receiving our original Altren 1000 mL label.”

“This adds an additional level of safety to our altrenogest product line with this vented dosing cap that eliminates the inconvenience of the bottle developing a vacuum during syringe filling,” states Rehurek. “By either not drawing against a vacuum or having to inject air first to prevent it, a source of possible leakage and personnel contamination is eliminated with this new, first of its kind draw-off dosing cap
