Comprehensive Sterile Compounding
May 13 to May 15
Participants are instructed in the proper aseptic techniques for preparations and quality control tests to prepare compounded sterile preparations. Participants will work in a simulated sterile environment in a USP 795 laboratory, focusing on the aseptic process and practical knowledge that meet the requirements for USP 797. During the third day, a non-sterile to sterile media-fill test process will be conducted in a USP 797 compliant clean room. Attendees will also learn how to prepare non-sterile to sterile compounds, including sterile solutions and manipulation of injectable solutions, cleaning and disinfection methods. Practical considerations about USP <800> will be discussed to facilitate the understanding of exposure routes and risks for those who handle hazardous drugs.
