Drug Product Characterization Studies and Testing Services

Extensive characterization capabilities to enable complete profiling of drug products of various complexities.

Our characterization services for NCEs, generics and first generics help assess the quality characteristics of drug products like physical and chemical properties, which are primary elements to ensure the desired quality, considering the safety and efficacy of the drug product. We help to understand physical, chemical and microbiological properties or characteristics that should be within an appropriate specification to ensure the desired product quality.
