The AST company profile

For more than 20 years, AST Service GmbH has been a partner of users when it comes to the provision of gases from a central location.

AST Service GmbH sees itself as a partner of health facilities and laboratories. Our services cover a wide spectrum of the needs arising in these facilities.

  • Advice on the redesign of central gas supply devices
  • Installation or expansion of gas supply devices
  • Construction and maintenance of gas and room air monitoring systems
  • Risk minimization
  • Risk evaluation & assessment
  • Preventive maintenance
  • Service on cryogenic devices of various manufacturers
  • Gas quality measurements

We regard the gases used in these facilities not only as gases, but also, depending on their use, as pharmaceuticals or medical preparations. Due to our long affiliation with a pharmaceutical manufacturer, we have a different view of the gases and their active ingredients.

For us, the “Apothekenbetriebsordnung” (Ordinance on the Operation of Pharmacies), the Pharmacopoea Europaea ( Ph. Eur.) and the monograph of the corresponding gases as pharmaceuticals are just as familiar as the regulations for the installation of technical gases or special gases such as hydrogen, nitrogen, argon, helium, carbon dioxide or various gas mixtures and the “Betriebssicherheitsverordnung” (Ordinance on Industrial Safety and Health).

We are an approved specialist for medical central gas supply systems under AZ: DE/CA09/0720/001 as well as certified according to DIN EN ISO 13485:2016 and MDD 93/42/EWG (CE 0297).


Our team consists of specialists for the different requirements and phases of a company.
