Specialized Compounding Equipment is used to ensure accuracy and precision in making compounds.
This machine is used for compounding capsules. It allows capsules to be made free of dyes and fillers!
The Troche Mold holds troches while they cool and take on their final form. Troches provide rapid sublingual administration of medicine. Many flavors are available at the patient’s request.
The Sterile Glovebox provides the pharmacist with an isolated environment in which he can compound sterile products.
This mold ensures the proper amount of liquid is used in each lollipop. It holds the stick in place while the liquid hardens.
An Ointment Mill is used to reduce particle size in compounded products. Creams and ointments are ground through porcelain rollers to ensure fine particle size. Smallest possible particle size is desired so that maximum absorption can be attained.
This balance/scale is used to ensure accurate weighing of ingredients.
This mold ensures the proper amount of ingredients is used for each suppository. We can compound rectal and vaginal suppositories.
A hood is used to control airborne powder particles. It provides a safe environment for pharmacists and technicians to handle the ingredients of a compounded product.
