ND>I am looking for information about, or contacts with people who have some

No published standards? Look to the USP (United States Pharmacopeal
Convention), the Parenteral Drug Association (PDA), the Association for
the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) for starters. I am
replying by E-mail to give you my address. Feel free to contact me by
Email - I serve on the USP Subcommittee of Revision, and would be happy
to help if I knew more about what you wanted.
Look forward to hearing from you.
