Protect the End User
The purpose of the strict processes and protective standards in pharmaceuticals is to ensure no harm comes to the consumer. Contaminated pharmaceutical products are a danger to the end-user, who would not be able to determine from sight, smell, or touch that their product was contaminated or toxic. Contamination can lead to expensive shutdowns, increased spending, recalls, and potential loss of life. On average, pharmaceutical manufacturers spend approximately $3.1 million per year to remediate contamination events.
