Analytical development in a laboratory


Outsource the development and optimization of your new analytical methods to FILAB, and get your results back in a matter of weeks !

Your needs : to develop or to optimize fast, reliable and applicable analytical methods at your production sites. 

As part of the launch of a new product, the optimization of a procedure or a change in regulations, developing custom analytical methods allows industrialists of all sectors to perform analyses specific to any given matrix which allows for its behaviors and characteristics to be evaluated.

Validation of the method, carried out according to relevant guidelines (NFT90210 or ICHQ2) will ensure the reliability of the analytical results.

Multiple factors must be taken into consideration when developing and validating new analytical methods, mainly the following : the specificity, repeatability, reproducibility, linearity and detection capacity (LoD and LoQ).

Our solution : to design, develop and validate custom analytical methods by providing the necessary means and techniques 

FILAB can assist you throughout the development and validation of your new analytical techniques by taking care of some of the steps of the process. With high technical skill and a diverse analytical fleet (GC-MS, LC-MSMS, ICP-MS…), FILAB can evaluate your needs and offer adapted solutions following any standards relevant to the project.

FILAB provides the following services :

  • Custom analytical development : GC-MS, LC-MSMS, ICP-MS, HPLC, UPLC…
  • Development of new techniques to analyze impurities using gas chromatography coupled to a mass spectrometer (GCMS)
  • Development of new techniques to quantify impurities using liquid chromatography coupled to a set of mass spectrometers (LC-MS/MS)
  • Development of accelerated aging methods (leaching, degradation, swelling, corrosion...)
  • Analytical development for heavy metal analysis using ICP-AES and ICP-MS
  • Development of new techniques to quantify crystalline phases using X-Ray Diffraction (XRD)
  • Kinetic polymerization simulations using DSC
  • Validation of analytical procedures following ICH Q2 standards
  • Validation de methods in compliance with the NF T 90-210 standards
  • Analytical validation for the determination of solar filters in order to comply with FDA standards on “over the counter” products (ex. Sun block...).
  • Onsite technique transfer of team training (FILAB is a CIR certified training organization)
  • Laboratory audit

With three levels of services – analysis, expertise and R&D support – FILAB assists companies from all sectors and of all sizes in overcoming their industrial challenges by sharing its technical know-how and the wealth of experience of its team with its clients. 

Depending on your field... 

  • Analytical development for the chemical and surface treatment industry
  • Analytical development for the pharmaceutical industry
  • Analytical development for the polymer industry
