Quotes, Reviews or Testimonials

"This book is very useful for those who work in home infusion practices or any pharmacy venue where stability data needs to be extended. This is considered to be the foundation book for extended stability. Handbook on Injectable Drugs is much more targeted for hospital practice. This book serves as a nice supplement and addition to other books in any sterile products pharmacy's library. This book needs to be updated periodically, so this sixth edition is welcomed."

-- Lawrence Carey, BS, PharmD (Temple University School of Pharmacy) - Doody's Review


This title is primarily for pharmacists and others (i.e., pharmacy technicians) who prepare sterile products. The authors have a wealth of experience and are outstanding, credible authorities in the area of sterile compounding.
