Laboratory activities and pharmacopoeias
Analyses of pharmaceuticals required by law (e.g. from random controls of pharmaceuticals on the market, batch release), requested by other sections of the Institute or where applicable, by state administration bodies or within the framework of international cooperation. The laboratories are members of the international General Network of Official Medicines Control Laboratories. The laboratories do not perform analyses upon request from any commercial entity (except for batch release as stipulated by the Act on Pharmaceuticals). The pharmacopoeial section is involved in the publication of Czech Pharmacopoeia and in the preparation of European Pharmacopoeia.
