Compounding pharmacies are a very unique usage for cleanrooms. These critical environments must comply with USP 797 regulations which are specifically designed to keep these rooms up to cleanliness standards. Because these rooms make many different types of medicines, if the equipment or the medicines become contaminated, the results could be fatal.
The FDA has recently issued a voluntary recall on products at Specialty Compounding, LLC in Cedar Park, Texas. The FDA received reports regarding 15 patients from two separate Texas hospitals who had bloodstream infections after receiving calcium gluconate infusions.
