Analytical Services


Our Analytical Research team provides all of the analytical needs for process development, GLP studies and GMP campaigns. In general, our service includes, but is not limited to, method development, method verification / validation, reference standard certification, release testing, and impurity separation and identification. We are skilled at HPLC / GC method development and validation, structural elucidation using LC-MS and NMR and stability studies as listed as below.


     1.     HPLC / GC method development for challenging separations including chiral separations

     2.     Method development and testing using LC/MS, LC/ELSD, GC/FID, GC/MS, NMR, TGA, KF, DSC, FT-IR, Polarimeter

     3.     Method transfer / validation

     4.     Reference standard certification

     5.     Separation and Characterization of impurities and degradants

     6.     Raw material, intermediate and API release testing

     7.     Stability studies: stability indicating method development and stability sample testing
