Raw Materials and Excipient Testing

Sidebar Image

No bio/pharmaceutical product can be manufactured without first establishing the identity, purity and quality of its starting materials to ensure the product is suitable for its intended use. When this critical step in the bio/ pharmaceutical manufacturing process is performed successfully, costly production problems and delays can be avoided.

Eurofins BioPharma Product Testing has the wide range of chemistry expertise and state-of-the-art instruments required to perform all types of raw materials testing, including qualification of compendial methods, as well as development, qualification and validation of new methods.

Whether you are looking for assistance in the release of your raw materials for production purposes or in the qualification of your vendors, we can help keep your project on track. All of our testing is performed in accordance with EP, USP/NF, BP, JP, ACS and FCC methodologies and monographs, in addition to any client-supplied or vendor-defined methods.
