Analysis for Many Purposes

Our pharmaceutical analysis serves a variety of purposes. It is often used to identify the chemical composition and molecular structure of each individual substance contained in a medication. This knowledge provides insight into a drug’s performance and safety considerations. Pharmaceutical testing can reveal a pharmaceutical’s solubility and can predict the medication’s ability to reach a specific target within the body. Testing may even reveal contamination in the manufacturing production process or highlight other, previously unknown risks with the formulation.

Another application of pharmaceutical testing is to provide insight into patent violations such as stolen formulations, or other litigation support.

We Cover the Pharmaceutical Testing Lifecycle 

There are many stages at which pharmaceutical testing and analysis are required. Typical needs in the pharmaceutical industry include:

  • Testing prior to scaling up production to retain color, flavor, and acceptable appearance.
  • Testing for health and safety regulations, such as sterility and toxicity requirements.
  • Testing for efficacy and performance expectations.
  • Testing for conformity issues against standards such as chemical identity, strength/potency, quality, and purity.
  • Testing to determine why a pharmaceutical product or its medical packaging has failed.
