Luex

“Over the past three decades, Luex has become a trusted name across the medical fraternity in Ghana with over 100 key brands across all major therapeutic categories.

“The company has equally strengthened its over the counter range, which has led to Luex becoming a household name nationwide,” Mr Mohan said.

He hinted that the company had also undertaken trials and studies on some key ethical products locally unlike other multinational companies which brought in studies conducted abroad.
