Pharmaceutical water is key to the production of pharmaceutical drug products, many of which require high-purity water. This is water purified according to guidelines as defined by the USP or other pharmacopeias.
There have been a number of technological advancements in high-purity pharmaceutical-grade water. Unlike other industries, however, changes in the use of high-purity water systems have often been in response to compendial and regulatory changes rather than a desire to innovate.
