Regular, Random Stability Testing

Our team ensures that our methods, formulas and products are accurately made by undertaking random stability testing. This is done to ensure Patients and Practitioners have faith in using our compounds.
Here are a number of examples.

Registration

NCC is also a QCPP (Quality Care Pharmacy Practice) certified, which is managed by the Pharmacy Guild of Australia.

The internal process is as follows:

  1. All of the following checks are completed by two (2) separate Pharmacists
  2. Formulation check from prescription to dispensing
  3. Medication or preparation is compounded
  4. Final check encompasses
    1. Correct ingredients
    2. Correct formulation
    3. Correct weight of ingredients used
    4. Integrity of product
    5. Physical presentation = dosage form, packaging and labelling
  5. All of the systems are integrated through a software systems which enables complete tractability

 

API (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients)

  • To maintain the integrity of the completed product NCC adheres to a strict management process for storage of its raw ingredients and components.
  • Raw ingredients are sourced from Australian importers and TGA approved wholesalers. Each API is supplied with a certificate of accuracy, CoA. We randomly sample and test the new products to ensure the CoA are accurate.

 

Facility Setup

To avoid cross–contamination the laboratory has three (3) separate rooms.

Each room has a designated function

  1. Hormones
  2. Vitamins/Nutritional
  3. Dermatological & Other Preparations

 

Equipment

All laboratory staff wear appropriate protective equipment which includes

  • Gown
  • Mask
  • Gloves
  • Eye wear
  • Boots
  • Hair Netting

 

Independent Laboratory Testing

NCC voluntarily participates in an independent laboratory testing of its compounds to test for potency and shelf stability under “normal” (room temperature) and “accelerated” conditions (increased relative humidity 70% and temperature 45 degrees Celsius). These tests are undertaken at zero, one(1), three(3) and six (6) months.

Testing is conducted by RTH Scientific Services, Brisbane and National Institute of Complementary Medicine, Herbal Analysis Laboratory (HAL), Penrith.
