Serving Compounders Since 1971


All suppliers say they have quality. At Spectrum, we prove it every day.

The quality of a product is only as good as the laboratory tests and scientific documentation supporting it. That's why Spectrum invests so heavily in our laboratory personnel, facilities and quality programs. Our team of more than 40 chemists, technicians and pharmacists have pharmaceutical experience with a wide range of analytical techniques, instrumentation and analyses, including the latest required USP <232/233> testing for control of elemental impurities.


Spectrum Pharmacy Products' extensive knowledge and experience in the changing global regulatory environment ensures that our products are compliant with the US FDA, DEA, ICH WHO and other worldwide regulatory entities. We perform more than 15,000 lab tests each year to ensure safer, better pharmaceutical ingredients and better outcomes for your patients.
