Analytical Testing

  • Extractables/Leachable Testing
    Elemental Impurities
    Non-volatile organic compounds
  • Hemodialysis Water Testing
    Chemical and microbial components that may be found in drinking water meeting US EPA regulations may have the potential to produce significant negative effects in patients undergoing hemodialysis.

    A comprehensive validation testing of the system producing water for hemodialysis should be performed initially and periodically thereafter to ensure that the water treatment equipment and system sanitization processes are functioning properly.

  • Stability Testing/Shelf Life/Accelerated Stability Testing

    The purpose of stability testing is to provide evidence on how the quality of a drug substance or drug product varies with time under the influence of a variety of environmental factors, such as temperature, humidity, and light, and to establish a retest period for the drug substance or a shelf life for the drug product and recommended storage conditions.
    Stability studies should include testing of those attributes of the drug product that are susceptible to change during storage and are likely to influence quality, safety, and/or efficacy. The testing should cover, as appropriate, the physical, chemical, biological, and microbiological attributes, preservative content (e.g., antioxidant, antimicrobial preservative), and functionality tests (e.g., for a dose delivery system).

    • Potency of API and degradation products
    • pH
    • Dissolution
    • Water loss

    Appearance, physical attributes, and functionality test (e.g., color, phase separation, resuspendability, caking, hardness, dose delivery per actuation) etc.

  • Total Organic Carbon Testing (TOC)
    Total Organic Carbon (TOC) is an indirect measure of organic molecules in pharmaceutical waters measured as carbon. Individual monographs for water require TOC testing according to USP <643>.
