Doug Haughs founded Bio-Med QC specifically to address the critical need for more sensitive and effective microbiology systems, for the sterility control of compounded sterile products. He has over forty years of positive experience in sterile diagnostics manufacturing, pharmaceutical sterility control and GMP procedural design. And, as a former state public health laboratory director with experience in epidemiological and infection control microbiology studies, he is uniquely adapted to the detection and elimination of microbial contamination problems in CSP preparation.



Through the application of the appropriate and necessary microbiology, Bio-Med QC has initiated vast improvements in the accuracy and quality of results available to CSP practitioners and pharmacy compliance efforts. Doug introduced the necessary requirements for truly quantitative and volumetric environmental sampling to the USP in 2005 that are now required practice. He also presented the significantly enhanced methodology for media-fill testing to the Clean Rooms conference that is employed in the Bio-Shield ATTM media-fill test kit, effecting a drastic reduction in the high risk of false negative results inherent in other systems, and the USP<797> sample procedure.




Bio-Med QCTM offers a comprehensive line of microbiologically optimized test products and procedures, sterility control training and corrective action consultation for CSP QA/QC.
