Laboratory analysis of biological medicine

Your needs: to ensure a high level of quality for your biological medicine in accordance with relevant pharmaceutical standards

Biological medicines are medications with active ingredients taken from living sources. They differ from conventional medications as their active ingredients are not chemically synthesized.

Biological medicines encompass vaccines, therapeutic proteins and monoclonal antibodies which are often administered in the form of injectable drugs.

These biological medicines are subject to the same types of stringent regulations as conventional medicines. Many chemical analyses must therefore be carried out on these substances.

Compliance of biological medicines is critical for them to be able to go to market and is essential for their life cycle.

A poorly aging product, the presence of impurities, interactions between active ingredients and excipients… These scenarios all hinder a biological medicine’s chances of going to market and can cause them to be called back.

To overcome these technical challenges, you are looking to cooperate with a reliable and reactive analytical laboratory.
