TASKS:

In order to improve quality of the services and to meet current requirements, a modern Cytotoxic Laboratory has recently been established within the Hospital Pharmacy. The equipment and the arrangement of the laboratory is compliant with European quality standards of Oncology Pharmacology and principles of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). Microbiological purity of the prepared medications is ensured by special laminar flow cabinets suitable for handling cytotoxic drugs, HEPA supply air filters and airlock systems that provide access to the production room. A major advancement was the introduction of an IT system supervising the medicine preparation process. The system uses precision scales in laminar flow cabinets to check if the prepared doses are correct, and monitors installed in the cabinets display appropriate instructions for the pharmacist concerning those next actions to be performed. The system very accurately documents the drug manufacturing process and is integrated within the hospital information system.
