The Pharmacy's laboratory supports pharmaceutical oncological care through pharmacological research.
The bioanalytical laboratory develops and validates determinations that can support clinical studies such as pharmacokinetics, mass balance, and metabolic profiling studies. Our "Therapeutic Drug Monitoring" (TDM drug overview) service provides physicians with drug levels in the blood and advice to optimize the dose of oral cancer drugs with a narrow therapeutic range.
The quality control laboratory evaluates active pharmaceutical materials, sem-manufactured goods, and finished products for the laboratory's production department. Methods are developed and validated for this purpose. The quality of all materials used in drug production is tested and all production rooms are checked for environmental and microbiological contaminations.
Both departments have implemented a quality assurance system. The bioanalytical laboratory can conduct studies in accordance with Good Laboratory Practice legislation (GLP, download GLP certificate) of the ECD and is inspected every 2 years by the government since 1999. The quality assurance laboratory operates in accordance with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP). An independent quality assurance department (covering all hospital pharmacies) checks whether both laboratories act in accordance with legislation.
