Primary Engineering Controls for Drug Compounding

NuAire manufactures a range of primary and secondary engineering controls for the USP 797 & USP 800 compliant pharmacy.

Pharmacy PEC

To help you with the compounding process, NuAire has created a range of pharmacy equipment that meets the U.S. Pharmacopeia's <797> standard for compounding sterile preparations and U.S. Pharmacopeia's <800> standard Hazardous Drugs—Handling in Healthcare Settings. You can rely on NuAire's powder weight stations to accurately and safely weigh powders and particles, even if they are hazardous. You can use NuAire's primary engineering controls such as a compounding aseptic isolator (CAI), which provides a sterile, positive pressure work environment for compounding non-hazardous drugs, or a compounding aseptic containment isolator (CACI), which provides a sterile, negative pressure work environment that minimizes exposure to airborne toxins and other hazardous materials. NuAire also has biosafety cabinets (BSC), laminar airflow workstations (LAFW), containment ventilated enclosures (CVE), and custom robotic enclosures for use in a compounding pharmacy.
