503A and 503B


It takes both to meet your compounding needs

What is the difference between 503A and 503B compounding?

503A compounding complies with USP <797> standards and focuses on customized patient-specific compounding dispensed only with a prescription. CAPS® is the market leader in customized parenteral nutrition and has the largest network of 503A regional facilities (22) in the industry.  CAPS® also offers patient-specific chemotherapy and hydration from our regional 503A pharmacies for daily delivery. 

503B compounding is essentially batch compounding with required compliance to the federal cGMP regulations including Test, Hold and Release quality assurance.
