Sterile and Non-sterile Standards
Pestle® provides a complete library of Sterile and Non-sterile Standards that users can access anytime they need. Additionally, you have the ability to add your own SOP’s to Pestle®! We certainly encourage our users to review the Pestle SOP’s to see if they are a good fit for your processes but we also understand that there are situations where you might want to add your own.
Pestle® allows you to export a compliance report anytime you need. You can export your entire compliance history or the history of a single compliance task. This export feature also allows you to backup your compliance data anytime and anywhere.
Pestle® provides the tools for managing and documenting culture media operations in your cleanroom. Pestle® lets you know about scheduled Media Fill, Glove Fingertip, and Air & Surface testing. Not only that, Pestle® will track culture media until the observational period is over and then documents the entire process and tracks results.
Track and Document Employee Training and Competency
Pestle® makes competency assessment and training modules available in Pestle’s Standards. These resources are detailed templates for non-sterile, sterile and hazardous compounding. Pharmacies can now track and schedule employee training and continuing education as they need, without losing track of progress or missing scheduled competencies.
Pestle® provides written and video tutorials as a great resource for you and your employees to learn Pestle®. If you ever have a question about functionality you can immediately look it up in our tutorials.
Pestle® allows the flexibility to add custom SOP’s, Forms, and Tasks. This gives you the unique ability to set your own compliance parameters while still working in Pestle®. You create the custom Form and Task then attach the custom SOP you created for that Task.
This can be as simple as changing a checklist or as complex as satisfying a FDA 483 inspection with a change management requests.
Quality Assurance Program
Ultimately, Pestle® is the tool for better Continuous Quality Improvement. You need to routinely examine and document every process: why are we doing it, do we need to do it, do we need to change it, and if we change it, is it the right decision for today and for tomorrow.
Alignment with PCAB
Pestle® was developed to help compounding pharmacies gain and maintain PCAB accreditation. In the effort to set a high standard for compliance, Pestle® has created Standards and Documentation that are consistent with PCAB’s.
