LATEST AROUND THE INDUSTRY
Sterility Test Failure: Possible Causes...
A sterility test detects microbial contamination and provides data to determine if your product is ready for release. A “Sterile” result indicates no contaminating microorganism is found in the sample. A “Not Sterile” result indicates microbial growth and the product examined does not comply with the test for sterility, unless it is demonstrated that the test is invalid. An investigation is performed to determine if a sterility failure is invalid due to laboratory error.
Drug Diversion: Revealing the Truth through Science
Drug diversion is the illegal practice of transferring regulated pharmaceutical agents from legal sources for illicit use. Instances of drug diversion within the workplace pose a significant risk of civil liability to the employer. Not only can harm befall the drug-diverter, but contaminated drug products also pose a significant threat to patients including risk of infection, allergic response to substituted components within the drug product, and death.
