Laboratory analysis of active ingredients for the pharmaceutical industry

Your needs : to analyze and determine the active ingredient contents in your products to meet regulatory requirements

An active pharmaceutical ingredient (API), also called active substance are the substances in medication which given them their biological and therapeutic properties. From natural (mineral, animal or vegetal) or synthetic origins, active ingredients are completed by excipients which give the medication its flavor, shape or even color.

Just like excipients, active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) are subject to important regulatory constraints in order to avoid any risk of toxicity for the consumer. For this reason, pharmaceutical companies and industrial suppliers must regularly inspect the quality of their active ingredients in order to remain in line with regulatory changes.
