Edge's Quality lab and QC team are an integral part of the process. A combination of state-of-the-art equipment, testing logs, and full-time staff scientists ensure that every batch of medication delivered is both correct and safe.
Regarding Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP), the FDA states, "A consumer usually cannot detect (through smell, touch, or sight) that a drug product is safe or if it will work." "Therefore, it is important that drugs are manufactured under conditions and practices required by the CGMP regulations to assure that quality is built into the design and manufacturing process at every step."
Edge adheres to the values put forth by USP 795, 797, 800, and CGMP. Through this our customers have the confidence in us to deliver medications they can feel comfortable administering, whether in a doctor's office or an operating room.
