Excipient analysis laboratory for the pharmaceutical industry

Your needs : to reliably analyze excipients found in your pharmaceutical products to meet regulatory requirements

Used in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries, an excipient is the name given to any substance present in a product that is not the active ingredient. While not having intrinsic therapeutic properties, excipients will give the final product new properties such as greater stability, better taste, a more desirable color, a different shape, etc.

To avoid any risks of chemical interactions or even toxic reactions, excipients are subject to stringent regulatory constraints especially as some of them can trigger allergies or intolerances (lactose, aspartame, formaldehyde, mannitol, wheat starch) 

Pharmaceutical laboratories and excipient suppliers must verify that their excipients comply with relevant standards (detection of impurities) as well as evaluating their compatibility with the active ingredient, packaging and final use of the product. To achieve this, support from a laboratory specialized in analyzing active pharmaceutical ingredients will allow you to carry out regular inspections to ensure that your excipients stay in line with changing regulations.
