Sterile Preparations
As health care professionals, it is our responsibility to provide the best care with the preparation of sterile medications intended for patient treatments to include office or institutional administration.
At Universal Arts Compounding Pharmacy, we pride ourselves in offering services and compounds that are prepared with the utmost integrity to the rules and regulations set forth by the Florida State Board of Pharmacy and USP Chapter <797>.

Our laboratory setting and staff members uphold the principles of quality control and proper compounding procedures ensuring minimal risk in all compounded preparations.

Here are some of the guidelines we follow:

• Lab testing of finished products, both in-house and independently
• Monitoring with environmental microbiology sampling
• Monitoring the particle count of the sterile environment
• Proper cleaning and maintenance routines
• Routine outside certification of our laminar flow hood
• Routine testing of our pharmacy staff's sterile technique
• Proper staff grooming and gowning before entering critical sterile areas

The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) sets the standards for pharmaceutical manufacturing and compounding of all drugs in the Unites States.
Our accreditation through the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board, PCAB further ensures the strict and rigorous guidelines are followed. The national accreditation program is the "gold” standard and its seal assures patients the safest and highest quality compounded drug.
