What is Compounding?
Compounding is the art and science of creating or
preparing personalized medications for patients.
Individual ingredients are combined in the exact
strength and dosage form required by the patient.
The pharmacist preparing the compound can work

Specialized Compounding
Equipment
is used to ensure
accuracy and precision in making
compounds.
This machine is
used for
compounding
capsules. It allows
capsules to be
made free of dyes
and fillers!
The Troche Mold holds
troches while they cool and
take on their final form.
Troches provide rapid
sublingual administration of
medicine. Many flavors are
available at the patient’s
request.
The Sterile Glovebox provides the pharmacist with an isolated
environment in which he can compound sterile products.
This mold ensures the proper amount of liquid is used in
each lollipop.
It holds the stick in place while the liquid hardens.
An Ointment Mill is used to
reduce particle size in
compounded products.
Creams and ointments are
ground through porcelain
rollers to ensure fine particle
size. Smallest possible
particle size is desired so
that maximum absorption can
be attained.
This
balance/scale is
used to ensure
accurate
weighing of
ingredients.
This mold ensures the proper amount of
ingredients is used for each suppository. We
can compound rectal and vaginal
suppositories.
A hood is used to control
airborne powder particles.
It provides a safe
environment for
pharmacists and
technicians to handle the
ingredients of a
compounded product.
