Our greatest mission here at Green Dispensary Compounding is to improve the lives of people in the community with unmet medical needs. This is brought about by the delivery of personalised and customised approaches to health through the development of novel drug formulations and drug delivery systems. Our dedicated team of pharmacists and technicians are constantly working on finding new and better ways to bring this into realisation. We look at ourselves as problem solvers who lead this industry. We are pioneering with:
These are just few examples of many more at Green Dispensary Compounding.
We have built a state of the art customised facility dedicated solely to ensure that the highest standards and safety of all medications produced here at Green Dispensary Compounding are delivered to you.
Upstairs we have three specialised departments completely separated, where unlike most other compounding pharmacies, we can guarantee zero cross-contamination of ingredients during production, ensuring your prescription medication is fulfilled to exacting standards. These departments are for:
All aseptic manipulations at Green Dispensary Compounding are performed in Grade A laminar air flow cabinets inside Grade B cleanrooms supplied with High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters. These positive pressured rooms are designed to comply with current Good manufacturing Practice (cGMP). Non sterile compounding suites are negative pressured designed for the preparation of hormone and non- hormone derived medications.
Unlike other pharmacies who are not dedicated to purely compounding medication, we at Green Dispensary Compounding are able to provide you with peace of mind in our purpose-built facility with a robust quality assurance program, which encompasses all aspects of preparation and testing to ensure accuracy and precision in weighing, measuring and methods of sterilisation.
Here we can ensure that zero cross-contamination of ingredients occurs in the production of your medication. Consistency and effectiveness are at the heart of our business and to ensure you receive the highest standard medications, we individually assess all certificates of analysis accompanying any incoming raw materials. Our in-house quality control unit also oversees each and every order to ensure you receive a consistent product.
We derive our ingredients from GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) suppliers who are approved by the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) or the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in the USA.
Not only have we been working purely with compounded medication for over 20 years, our world-class pharmacists also work in close collaboration with doctors and allied health professionals to devise your optimum treatment. Our team consists of a dedicated pharmacist working specifically with sterile preparations and another dedicated pharmacist who specialises in hormones and vitamins. Our pharmacists are also able to counsel you in the usage and effect of your specialised compounding product with any medication or vitamins you may already be taking.
All sterile compounding is done by pharmacists and technicians that are certified trained and undergo biannual sterile training and evaluation for aseptic technique.
Our R&D room is designed to develop and improve new formulations and to quality test our products. Whether working on a novel formulation or improving the delivery device for medications, the team at Green Dispensary Compounding strives to make the lives of patients better.
