As a result of testing many different types of formulations in our lab, we have found some of them can present unique problems or raise questions as to the best way to compound them. As a result, we periodically publish white papers on these topics and attempt to provide, not only answers, but also compounding tips which we hope prove to be helpful.
As a testing laboratory for 503(a) compounding pharmacies and 503(b) outsourcing facilities, many of our protocols follow USP chapters. Our Sample Submission form, Price List and our lab Certificate of Analysis reports frequently reference these chapters. To help clarify what these chapters address, we have included here brief descriptions of those we most frequently follow.
