Quality - Taj Pharma (Oncology)
Tajoncology’s quality system functions as a filter on every level to ensure our products are of excellent quality and exceed the requirements and specifications of our customers and their governments. As an American managed company, we place extreme importance on ensuring all of our products meet the highest standards of quality.
Quality at Taj Oncology is clearly demonstrated in all phases of the product lifecycle. Quality supervision begins at the test facilities with careful documentation and general conduct of non-clinical safety studies. This ensures compliance with current Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) and consequently, the integrity of the data produced. Quality supervision then follows through clinical trials, production and distribution, and concludes with shelf-life surveillance.
Quality During Clinical Stages
During clinical stage development, quality supervision guarantees that the fundamentals of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs ) are consistently applied. Quality is built into the different phases of clinical development to secure:
- The safety and rights of our studies’ participants
- The reliability of the data submitted to health authorities
- The complete adherence to all current Good Clinical Practices (GCPs)
Our clinical Quality Management System encompasses clinical research documents, activities and information management systems. Moreover, Taj Oncology ensures that quality is a main concern, not only in our own processes and procedures, but also in those of our vendors, investigators and contractors who collaborate with us at the clinical stage.
Quality Throughout the Manufacturing Process
Taj Oncology has state of the art manufacturing facilities and uses the most advanced testing equipment, to guarantee the quality of our products. Taj Oncology additionally supervises suppliers' procedures in order to ensure that the highest quality materials are used in our products.
Once a product gains regulatory approval and enters routine manufacturing, quality is guaranteed throughout the process, for both drug substances and drug products.
- Manufacturing processes are validated and equipment is tested and certified
- Test methods are confirmed to ensure that each product is of reproducible quality
- Continuous improvement practices are employed so that processes and procedures are continually updated
Shelf-Life Quality Surveillance
Quality doesn't end when the product is released. Taj Oncology continues to monitor its products throughout their shelf life. Representative batches of all products are checked for stability to ensure that products remain safe and effective throughout their shelf life.
Taj Oncology addresses and responds to quality and medical complaints. Information about potential quality or medical issues is shared throughout the Taj Oncology network, and appropriate actions are taken.
Taj Oncology's quality management system includes all aspects of quality relating to facilities, products, and service. However, quality management is not only focused on product and service quality, but also the means to achieve it. Quality management therefore uses quality assurance and control of processes as well as products to achieve the most consistent quality possible.Read More
Quality assurance is a wide ranging concept covering all matters that individually or collectively influence the quality of a product. Taj Oncology's quality system is divided into 4 areas which are constantly micromanaged: Production, Distribution, Inspections, and Quality Control. Each area has unique processes and procedures to ensure product consistency.Read More
Taj Oncology's quality control system emphasizes the rigorous testing of products to uncover defects, and reporting to management who make the decision to allow or deny the release, whereas quality assurance attempts to improve and stabilize production, and associated processes, to avoid issues that lead to defects. As quality control issues are among the top reasons for not renewing contracts in the pharmaceutical industry, Taj Oncology is proud to say we have never lost a customer due to quality issues.Read More

We have already progressed on such efforts by our current presence in more than 40 countries.
