Analytical services

Part of our quality-first approach is the testing and analysis of our products to ensure their high quality. We have developed a huge range of analytical methods and considerable know-how for various APIs, herbal extracts, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients either as single preparations or combination products.

Our dedicated analytical development and stability testing team supports the delivery of new products by:

  • Literature research
  • Developing and validating state-of-the-art analytical methods
  • Stress and compatibility studies
  • Transferring these methods into our quality control laboratories
  • Performing special analytical studies (such as dissolution studies to assess and compare bioavailability in vitro, or studies to assess taste-masking efficacy)

To verify the stability of our products we can perform stability programs for the following purposes:

  • Development – evaluation of laboratory batches
  • Registration – according to the International Council for Harmonization of Technical Requirements for Registration of Pharmaceuticals for Human Use (at all climatic zones) and specific requirements for food/dietary supplements
  • Ongoing – during commercial production as part of the quality assurance and lifecycle management program
  • Transport – verification that shipment has no effect on product quality
  • In-use – verification that the repeated opening of multi-dose containers has no effect on product quality
