Analytical Testing

  • Hazardous Drug Residue Testing
  • Hemodialysis Water Testing
    Chemical and microbial components that may be found in drinking water meeting US EPA regulations may have the potential to produce significant negative effects in patients undergoing hemodialysis.

    A comprehensive validation testing of the system producing water for hemodialysis should be performed initially and periodically thereafter to ensure that the water treatment equipment and system sanitization processes are functioning properly.

  • HVHAZ <800> Kit

    “The OSHA HCS and USP chapter <800> require employee training for the tasks that will be performed as part of the (hazardous drug compounding) safety program” -ASHP Guidelines on Handling Hazardous Drugs

    The HVHAZ assists in hazardous drug handling competency verification training where antineoplastic or other hazardous drugs are compounded or processed. The product is intended to fulfill the USP <800> criteria for personnel training and can also be used to simulate spills and subsequent clean-up protocol processes for up to five personnel.
