Mylan launches drug reference for mobile devices

PITTSBURGH — Mylan has launched an application version of the reference guide to its drugs, the generic drug maker said Thursday.

The company announced what it called the first ever app of its Generic Brand Reference Guide, a free reference for healthcare professionals, patients and pharmacy students that enables the fast identification of brand and generic drugs. The 2012 print edition of the GBR was made available in a pocket-sized format earlier this year.

"We are pleased to offer Mylan's 2012 GBR to healthcare professionals in the U.S., including pharmacists, physicians and nurses and chain and wholesale buyers," Mylan North America president Tony Mauro said. "The GBR provides a comprehensive and up-to-date list of the generic and brand names for more than 2,000 separate oral and liquid dosage forms, as well as injectable and transdermal products. Mylan is committed to partnering with healthcare providers to optimize their time and together expand access to high-quality medicine."
