Product Description

SGS provides the professional expertise and regulatory qualifications necessary to perform analytical testing of raw materials, APIs, finished products, packaging material and medical devices. Well-equipped state-of-the-art laboratories offer comprehensive testing services according to the pharmacopoeia (e.g. EP, USP, BP, JP) and to customer specifications.

Chemical and Physico-Chemical Testing:

- Assays (e.g. UV/Vis, IR, AAS, etc.)
- Chromatographic tests (e.g. HPLC, GC, IC, ICP-MS)
- Identification of active ingredients and impurities
- Physical and physico-chemical determinations (e.g. pH, viscosity, melting point, particle size, osmolality and osmolarity, flash point, loss on drying)
- Limit tests (e.g. heavy metals, ash, anions)
- Residual solvents (volatile organic compounds [VOC], organic volatile impurities [OVI])
- Solid oral dosage QC tests (e.g. disintegration, dissolution, hardness, friability)
- Sampling and analyses of water for pharmaceutical purpose and controlled process environments (e.g. TOC, conductivity)
