How long have you been with Alcami?

This is my 17th year with Alcami. 

What is your role? 
I am a Quality Specialist III with a focus on report generation and review of equipment validations and am currently training to become an audit host for the Durham site. I have also had the unique opportunity to explore several other areas of the company from sample receipt to test procedure generation.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?
The most rewarding part of my job is knowing we are ultimately helping the individuals who take the medicine we test, research or manufacture at Alcami. As a childhood cancer survivor, I have experienced first-hand lifesaving medicine and research and I am proud to be part of that now as an adult.

Stability: Back to the Basics - Part IV

Part IV: Stability and the Importance of Storage Conditions

In this five-part blog series, Alcami scientific experts, Russell Crothers and Adam Keisker, go “back to the basics” to examine the importance of stability in pharmaceuticals.


After expounding on the importance of efficacy and degradation in the previous blog, this fourth edition of the stability series will answer the most common questions people have about storing medicines and explain how storage plays a direct role on a product’s efficacy, along with which studies are used to measure efficacy.

Is it necessary to read the storage conditions listed on the label? Could where I keep my medicine damage it?

Yes! How medicine is stored influences its efficacy and safety. Remember to always follow the recommended storage conditions for the best use of a finished pharmaceutical product.
