Medisca Texas Facility Receives Perfect Score in 2018 FDA GMP Inspection

December 7, 2018

IRVING, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 7, 2018--Today MEDISCA, the industry leader for providing high quality compounding solutions and services to pharmacists worldwide, announced that its Irving, Texas repackaging and distribution center received zero observations during its November 2018 current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) inspection. The completion of this successful 10-day audit demonstrates the global company’s commitment to quality, safety, and patient care.

“As a company, MEDISCA puts patient safety first. To do that, we prioritize quality products and systems that allow us to eliminate risk to patient health,” said Antonio Dos Santos, President of MEDISCA. “Achieving a perfect score on our recent cGMP inspection is an example of our dedication to rigorous testing and management processes that ultimately impact the quality of life of the millions of patients who rely on customized medicine.”

In 2014, MEDISCA implemented MasterControl, a robust Quality Management System allowing standardization of documentation, systems and processes across the company as it continues to expand globally. MEDISCA applies both validated electronic systems as well as physical segregation of material within its facilities to ensure quarantined, rejected, returned or recalled material is held in quarantine status until authorized personnel is able to determine whether there’s a risk to patients. Beyond MEDISCA’s rigorous facility requirements, the company also requires its manufacturers to be FDA registered and subject to regulatory inspections; requires evidence that the manufacturer produces APIs according to GMP; enforces a quality agreement to be signed; ensures APIs meet the latest pharmacopoeia; and reviews stability studies to validate all manufacturers’ expiration dates.
