"We strongly believe that consistency will be the key," said Mike Koch , CAPS Vice President, Marketing and Support Services. "To help ensure both patient safety and confidence in the nation's drug supply, it's important to hold all compounded sterile preparations made in the U.S. to a consistent set of quality standards, while avoiding potentially dangerous loopholes."
