Sterile Compounding

Sterile Compounding in Perth, Australia

Sterile compounding in Perth, Australia is the process of preparing customised compounded medications in an absolutely sterile environment. Sterile compounding is typically done to meet the unique needs of individual patients who require medication that is not commercially available.

What is Sterile Compounding?

Sterile compounding, also known as aseptic compounding services, is a process of preparing personalised medications in a sterile environment, typically for patients who require intravenous or injectable therapies. This process ensures that the medication is free from any harmful contaminants and is safe for use.

Which medications must be compounded in a sterile lab?

Sterile compound processing is particularly important for certain kinds of compounded formulas, but is not necessary for every kind of compounded medication. Most compounded formulas for creams or medications ingested orally do not require sterile processing, however most medications that will be administered by injection or in the eye will require the use of a certified sterile compounding lab.

Certain treatments commonly require sterile preparation of compounded medications such as those administered via:

  • Injection
  • Intravenous Infusion (IV)
  • Intraocular (injection in the eye)
  • Intrathecal (injection in the spine)
  • Eye Drops
  • Subcutaneous Injections (injection below the surface of the skin)
