  • This chapter pertains to a large variety of samples for injections to be tested based on USP limits provided for light obscuration test or microscopic particle count test.
  • Opthalmic testing has stricter limits due to the sensitivity of the eye and how it is administered. This can be tested through light obscuration test or microscopic particle count test.
  • This chapter clarifies on specific caveats depending on application as topical, intraocular injections, and extraocular injection. Intraocular and topical administration of the drug, USP recommends the sample to be tested with USP <789> limits due to the local and systemic issues that can occur. Extraocular injections are suggested in USP to follow <788> limits since the injectables are similar in nature and have less of an effect to the area of administration.

DYNALABS LLC, has invested $1.2 million to expand its microbiology lab and office space. The renovation, nearing completion, will double capacity and improve workflow, among other administrative benefits.

Gray Design Group was tapped for the project, along with PortaFab of Chesterfield, Liberty Electric of O’Fallon, Missouri, and American Mechanical of Eureka.

This couples with the $1.5 million chemistry department expansion finished last year. Since then, DYNALABS has nearly doubled its workforce to 95 employees.

DYNALABS is adding $100,000 in additional security upgrades, set to be fully operational in March 2018. The new surveillance cameras, video storage, video displays and the technical support structure are currently being installed and tested.

While fortifying workplace security, DYNALABS is continuously monitoring work and traffic flow patterns within our facilities to ensure the best lab and sample management practices. We have engaged the services of Tech Electronics and Panasonic to design, furnish, and install the new video cameras. Liberty Electric will be working on the installation of network and power cabling. Systems will be running through Cisco and Dell technologies.
