Identification testing can be useful to analyse product formulations and package coatings; rapidly screen the quality of raw materials, intermediates and formulated products; qualify nutraceuticals; provide pharmaceutical manufacturers with a certificate of analysis for your raw material or final product. At NAFS we employ a variety of different techniques to identify components. these techniques include UV spectroscopy, FTIR spectroscopy and Mass spectrometry.
Residual Solvent Analysis
A range of organic solvents are used for manufacturing pharmaceuticals. These solvents can be detected as residues of such processing in the final products. Solvent residues should be controlled through Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and proper quality control. NAFS offers residual solvent test panels to ensure the safety of your product. Please inquire about a comprehensive list of residual solvent test panels listed in USP 467, ICH Q3C and Ph. Eur.2.4.24 for
Heavy Metals / Trace Elements Analysis
Contamination of pharmaceuticals with trace elements can result from numerous origins. These include environmental pollution, contaminated water, in-process contamination from containers and vessel used during manufacturing and finally from final product packaging. It is thus imperative that pharmaceutical manufacturers test for trace elements in their final products. NAFS provides a test panel which includes all class 1, class2A&B elements listed in ICH Q3D, USP233 and Ph. Eur. 2.4.20.
