Puramint is designed to exceed USP 797, 800, 795, and the requirements of the state boards of pharmacy that it is licensed in. Furthermore, Puramint adheres to the guidance provided by the FDA under section 503A of The Drug Quality and Security Act. Our goal is to be a model of quality and safety not to simply pass our routine inspections.
The key to providing safe sterile compounded products resides in testing and proof. Our team are each individually trained by credentialing organizations and internally by our experienced staff. No one can operate within our sterile environments without passing all required testing and have a series of 3 perfect (zero growth) glove fingertip samples. In addition, our labs are monitored weekly for even the smallest change in the environment.
Puramint employs a high level of technology to ensure consistent and quality products. All products are weighed using scales that are directly connected to the compounding system. This system requires the barcode of the product to be scanned in order to record a weight. No manual entries are done. If a liquid measurement is required, the system will require a picture to be taken of the measurement before the liquid is placed in the compound. This same picture system also requires periodic pictures of the compounding process to be taken at key intervals so that Puramint has a complete visual record of each compound. Gone are the days of a paper checklist, Puramint requires visual proof of process.
Puramint’s commitment to quality begins with our rigorous hiring process to identify key individuals with a strong dedication to quality, customer service, and patient safety. Each potential hire goes through a multi-level interview and background check process. Once hired, these individuals must pass extensive written and hands on testing protocols before they are ever allowed to compound a prescription for an actual patient. Even then they are closely monitored by a Puramint Pharmacists and a system of checks to ensure a consistent product.
