Chemical Characterization

Expert Characterization Testing Services

Protect patient safety with our characterization techniques. Characterization testing supports patient safety by evaluating medical devices or packaging for any materials in potentially hazardous quantities for the intended exposure. Chemical characterization provides the data necessary to identify extractable and/or leachable compounds present in a medical device or, in the case of drug products, the container closure systems used for storage. These products must be evaluated for their intended use from an extractable and leachable perspective and compatibility of those materials to preserve the integrity of drug products. 

Analytical characterization is required from a regulatory perspective and provides a foundation for toxicological risk assessments using the test article in its intended application. Our expert team adapts and applies regulatory guidelines to your device or container closure to ensure the study design and execution suit your product(s) and requirements. Partner with us for a broad spectrum of methods designed to provide a representative chemical profile of your products, including:
