Abstract:  In addition to the numerous physical, chemical, instrumental, and microbiological tests commonly utilized in the quality control of compounded medications, it also seems appropriate to incorporate visual testing and photodocumentation to provide additional assurance supporting the quality of compounded medications. This article provides a brief listing of what is needed, along with a description of simple procedures, to establish photodocumentation in a compounding pharmacy.
