Eagle Opens Analytical Lab in Houston, Texas
According to company officials, patient safety is Eagle’s core focus as it helps sterile and non-sterile compounders and pharmaceutical manufacturers develop and maintain systems in compliance with government regulations and standards.
“What we’re doing is making a difference in people’s lives,” Eagle President & CEO Dr. Ross Caputo said. “We have state-of-the-art clean rooms where we test the sterility of medicines and clean rooms specially designed for handling hazardous drugs and pathogens. Plus, we have the ability to perform rapid sterility testing for our client pharmacists who are making personalized medicine for patients in need. We make it possible for pharmacies, outsourcing facilities and manufacturers to assess the quality of the products they produce, so that patients do not have to worry about the safety of their medication.”
Strategic partners include PCCA, a Houston-based, FDA-registered supplier of active pharmaceutical ingredients, excipients and technical consulting to pharmacies, healthcare institutions and outsourcing facilities. PCCA President Jim Smith and PCCA Chief Scientific Officer Gus Bassani, PharmD, participated in the grand opening ceremonies.
“Fifteen years ago, we had a vision that pharmacies had a need to assess the quality of the compounded formulations they were making,” Dr. Bassani said. “We’ve gone from four employees and 4,000 square feet to 50 employees and 30,000 square feet. Today, Eagle is not only about assessing the stability, sterility and quality of formulations prepared in compounding pharmacies, they’re also about the testing of what is prepared in CGMP environments, such as those within the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry.”
“We are so proud of the great work that’s being done here at Eagle,” PCCA President Jim Smith said. “The work is just getting started, what’s going to be coming out of Eagle’s efforts is going to be remarkable.”
