Tradition-based Innovation

Klaus Keplinger
IMMODAL Pharmaka GmbH is a GMP-certified pharmaceutical company and the world’s leading producer of standardised preparations from the tropical plant Uncaria tomentosa (Willd.) DC. (Cat’s Claw, Uña de Gato, Katzenkralle).

Founded in 1989 by Klaus Keplinger, since its inception the company has devoted itself to ethnomedical research into Ibero-American plants.

We attach paramount importance to ensuring that our products are of the highest quality, to preserving genetic resources, to protecting the environment and to showing due respect for the social and ethical interests of indigenous groups.

Our research projects show that responsible use of biological resources is not destructive, but can be of both economic and ethical value.
