ALK Source Materials

A unique production approach

As a company whose products touch the lives and affect the well-being of people around the world, we are committed to maintaining the highest production standards.

From pollens to finished products

  • GROW
    Raw Materials
    ASM currently operates facilities in Pennsylvania, Illinois, California, Washington and Idaho. This accounts for over 120,000 square feet of facilities and 800 acres of exclusive farm land, giving ALK a tremendous amount of control over its raw materials.
  • HARVEST
    Collection
    These materials start as a seed and a field. The majority of the materials needed to create allergen extracts are planted, cultivated, and collected as any other agricultural crop. The allergy industry of ALK is a very green industry and consists of a lot of farming.
  • PROCESS
    Manufacturing Standards
    ALK’s success in creating the source materials lies in a completely different arena – the extensive testing, documentation, and quality control measures. All pollen batches undergo a number of tests and quality checks before being released for manufacturing. Most importantly, species identity determinations are made by ASM experts using taxonomic keys and herbarium specimens. Additionally, the pollen is examined under a microscope to further certify the collected batch for identity, purity, and integrity.
  • DISTRIBUTION
    Packaging and distribution
    Following careful quality control, the finished products are labelled, packaged and distributed.
