COMPREHENSIVE STERILE COMPOUNDING is an accredited 3-day, 20-hour (2.0 CEUs) practice-based course designed for pharmacists and technicians who are experienced in compounding. Completion of the Fundamental Compounding Course is recommended, but not required. Physicians and other health care professionals are welcome to attend.
Participants are instructed in the proper technique preparation, and quality control tests for sterile products, such as validation testing, membrane filtration, pyrogen tests, BET, (bacterial endotoxin test) and others. Participants work in a simulated sterile environment in a 795 lab; on the final day, cleanroom exercises and a high-risk media fill will be conducted in a true 797 lab.
