Extractables & Leachables

Demonstrate product safety and efficacy through our comprehensive extractables and leachables (E&L) testing. Our approach identifies and quantifies potential contaminants that could migrate from your packaging materials or implantable devices into your drug products. We perform chemical characterization of extractables by subjecting your product to worst-case conditions for constituent identification. Targeted leachables studies are then developed to specifically quantitate compounds of concern that were initially detected.

Elemental Impurities

Verify the levels of elemental impurities in your raw materials, in-process formulations, and finished pharmaceutical and medical device products. Whether you need to demonstrate a level of control for regulatory compliance or monitor for a label-claim, our team has a wide range of experience using several instrumental techniques.

Safeguard the integrity and functionality of your pharmaceutical products through rigorous physical functional testing by our team. We perform container closure integrity to evaluate the packaging material’s ability to maintain product integrity and prevent environmental contamination. To gauge for accurate and convenient dosing to patients, we assess your drug products viscosity or syringability. As for packaging material strength and flexibility, our tensile elasticity testing measures the expected impacts upon shipping, handling, and storage. Additional unique physical or functional requirements can be addressed with custom method development and validation.

Analytical Methods

Assure your product’s quality and purity with comprehensive analytical method development and testing. We identify and characterize impurities for safety and purity. Your active ingredient content is precisely measured with validated analytical methods to ensure consistent dosing and therapeutic effect. In addition to quantitative tests, we offer qualitative limit tests to determine the presence or absence of specific impurities. Our team also applies activity assays and cleaning verifications as part of our analytical development and testing.

Our services are designed to deliver you with trusted data as seamlessly as possible, which is why our method tech transfers enable consistent and reliable results across different sites. We even proactively monitor and update analytical methods throughout the product lifecycle to remain fit-for-purpose and fully compliant with regulatory requirements.
