Product Stability Testing

At National Custom Compounding, the Quality of our compounded medicines is an absolute priority because we understand that the medicines we create assist in improving patient’s health. A part of our Quality Assurance program involves random stability and potency testing of medicines . The Lab team will make a medicine and then a random sample is sent to a testing laboratory. We regularly run these tests to look at both medicine stability and medicine potency. By looking at stability, we test the expiry date of the medicine and potency testing, looks at how accurately the product Completed Potency Tests

"Excellent customer service"

To the Manager, I spoke to a lady in your office on Thursday who called to confirm my order. Unfortunately I did not hear her name properly. I asked her if she could expedite my order as I had run out that day and she said that she would do her best. To my overwhelming joy and surprise my vitamins arrived on Friday in Sydney when I was expecting it on Monday. This meant that I had my supplements over the weekend. Now I am reasonably sure that it took a concerted effort to make this happen. I therefore wanted to say a very big thank you to the lady I spoke to and all the people on your team that worked to make this happen. This is excellent customer service that is hard to find these days and wanted you and your team to know how much I appreciated it. Thank you again to you and your team.
