Today’s Veterinary Business Staff
Stokes Pharmacy, which makes compounded drugs for veterinary and human patients, has been awarded PCAB accreditation, the Mount Laurel, New Jersey, company reported today.
PCAB, or Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board, certification assures compliance with the industry’s highest standards under U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) guidelines.
“We understand that many prescribers and state boards of pharmacy want to see this accreditation as proof of high standards, and we are proud to show it,” Stokes President Michael Tursi said.
Accreditation was awarded one day after an inspection by an independent expert, Stokes stated. The company’s pharmacy operations will be subject to annual verification.
Stokes joins a growing list of veterinary drug compounders holding PCAB accreditation. Among the others are Diamondback Drugs of Scottsdale, Arizona; McMahan Pharmacy Services of Goldthwaite, Texas; and Vets First Choice of Omaha, Nebraska.
