The Icebergsearch in a nutshell
The Google-like pharmaceutical search engineby pharmazie.com
After entering a search term, the Icebergsearch lists a number of suitable matching databases. This result list can be filtered according to application criteria, such as country, pharmaceutical dosage form or pharmaceutical manufacturer. We call this „Multidimensional Icebergsearch“.
Icebergsearch – all drug information with one click.
FILTERING IN THE ICEBERGSEARCH
You may use established search terms from common search engines such as „“, +, -, etc. in the Icebergsearch. Of special interest is the possibility to search for equivalents, semantic variations, similarities, analogies in language and content. Mistakes in spelling of the search entries will be recognised and result in a „Did you mean“ , so that the correct search result will be listed.

What customers say
The practical thing is that you can find ALL the articles that are sold in the pharmacy in the iceberg search: medicines, medical devices, aids, etc., medicines that have been withdrawn from the market, foreign medicines, etc. In pharmacy practice, our students learn how to use and research a database. The iceberg search is an ideal introduction, as even inexperienced users can find something directly and quickly.Dr. Sabine Werner
