  • "Having worked in institutions in the sterile products area and taught students about it for a number of years, this is the best compilation of information in one source that I have ever seen.  The writing is excellent; it is very readable and understandable.  This will be a resource that both academia and practice can rely on for many years."
    --Charles C. Collins, RPh, PhD
    Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences
    East Tennessee State University, Bill Gatton College of Pharmacy

  • "Topics covered in this book are not available in other titles."
    --P. L. Madan, Ph.D
    St. John's University

  • "I am impressed to see the allegations, priming volume and powder volume calculations that are typically left off of our pharmaceutical calculations texts and definitely left out of sterile products texts. I am also impressed by Chapter 10.  I think that it is great to discuss pediatric issues."
    --Tracy Kosinski, PharmD
    Concordia University Wisconsin School of Pharmacy

  • "I highly and unequivocally recommend adoption of this text by pharmacy programs that formally teach sterile products, including our program. Not only will it assist faculty and students in learning this area, it can be kept and use as a resource for those practicing in the area after graduation."
