Title Injectable Pharmaceuticals Recalled Due to Lack of Sterility Assurance
Introduction MPL Laboratories provides sterility and other pharmaceutical testing services in its FDA registered, cGMP and ISO 17025 compliant testing laboratory.

Sparta, NJ, October 30th, 2017

In October, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) posted information about a pharmaceutical company out of Arkansas that voluntarily announced a product recall of 11 different injectable products. At the time of the notice, the drug company disclosed no known reports of adverse events associated with the recalled injectable drugs, but is advising consumers to immediately stop using the products.

The sterility of the nation’s prescription drug supply is a critical issue for drug manufacturers, healthcare providers and the general public. If contaminated drugs reach patients, the situation can lead to illnesses and deaths, expensive lawsuits, damaged public relations and even plant closures.

To help prevent these types of events from happening, MPL Laboratories’ FDA registered and DEA licensed facility offers cGMP and ISO 17025 compliant sterility and microbiology testing of pharmaceuticals, medical devices, cosmetics and personal care products. Their renowned scientists have decades of experience testing these types of items and with access to highly advanced instrumentation, they are able to rapidly identify issues in the manufacturing process that could cause sterility or other product quality issues before these items reach patients or consumers.

MPL Laboratories currently offers sterility testing by USP direct inoculation and membrane filtration. To assure the highest quality results, all testing takes place in a controlled environment room that is continuously monitored and features restricted access. These and other services are available to pharmaceutical companies, regulatory agencies and healthcare providers in the United States, Canada and across the globe.
