Comparator Product Testing

Sidebar Image

Before a product within the same therapeutic class as another can be released to the market, comparator product testing must be performed to confirm that the product’s benefits outweigh that of the current, comparable product on the market.

There are many aspects of comparator product testing including, release testing of clinical supplies/materials for manufacturing, development and validation of assay, impurity and dissolution methods, stability studies and clinical release.

Eurofins BioPharma Product Testing offers a comprehensive range of comparator product testing services to support new products in development, as well as for marketed products of the same therapeutic class. Our analysts focus on the innovator product to develop and validate methods needed to support the client’s stability and clinical studies.
