SUCCESSFUL FDA INSPECTION OF OUR BIOANALYTICAL LABORATORY


Due to the nature of the pharmaceutical industry, Pharmascience must always excel to achieve high quality standards that meet the needs and obligations of the pharmaceutical sector and the various authorities that regulate this environment.

Following the first Food and Drug Administration (FDA) inspection, no notice of non-compliance which would constitute an FDA violation (form-483) was issued! The inspection was held on May 22 to May 25 at the Royalmount site in the bioanalytical laboratory.

Pharmascience employees can all be extremely proud of their commitment to ensuring continuity in the excellence of the product quality and compliance with standards that encompass the procedures. It is this commitment that permits the company to remain, to this day, among the leaders in the industry!

Congratulations to all the employees in the Biopharmaceutics department for the achievement of this important milestone and to all those who ensure, day after day, that Pharmascience remains at the highest level in terms of quality and compliance!
