Quality Compounding

The ability to combine one or more chemicals into a new preparation (upon the order of a prescriber) is the unique domain of the compounding pharmacist. NuCara's pharmacists combine art and skill to create new formulations and unique dosage forms that were previously unavailable. To do this correctly, state-of-the-art technology is crucial.

  • NuCara pharmacies are equipped with electronic balances that accurately weigh chemicals in minute increments.
  • Our ointment mills and homogenizers reduce particle size, resulting in smoother suspensions and transdermals.
  • Our autoclaves, clean rooms and laminar airflow hoods ensure sterile preparations.
