Potency Over Time Stability
USP <621> <797>

Determining the Beyond Use Dating (BUD) and/or the Stability of Preparation is done by testing the potency of a sample at baseline and various time points thereafter, as determined by the compounder. The procedure is similar to normal potency testing, with the exception of how the sample is handled after the first round of testing is completed. A Chain of Custody (CoC) is used to monitor further testing performed beyond the initial baseline test.

Accelerated Potency Stability
USP <621> <797>

This particular form of Beyond Use Dating (BUD) and/or the Stability of Preparation is done by initially testing the potency of a sample at Room Temperature (20ºC). Once tested, the sample is then placed in an elevated temperature (40ºC) and humidity chamber to help accelerate (2-3 fold) the various time points thereafter, as determined by the compounder. Due to the limited space for this form of stability, the testing of these samples are charged at a higher rate. A Chain of Custody (CoC) is used to monitor further testing performed beyond the initial baseline test.
