Analytical Testing: Products and Raw Materials

Pharmaceutical products and materials made under current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) require batch or lot release against the approved product specification. Furthermore, importation testing is required for many generic products. Our analytical laboratories possess a wide range of analytical instrumentation and expertise to provide responsive drug product and raw material release testing. Routinely handling a diverse range of sample matrices, including both small and large molecules, leaves ALS well positioned to meet the needs of our clients’ ever expanding product portfolios and diverse product ranges.

Method Development and Validation

ALS supports the development, validation, verification or transfer of analytical methods ranging from simple identification tests to more complex, stability indicating analysis. Our chemists are adept at developing or working with methods for HPLC, UPLC, GC, GC-MS, Ion Chromatography, ICP-OES, or ICP-MS instruments. Application of Quality by Design (QbD) concepts are entwined throughout ALS-driven development, validation and transfer processes.


Physical & Structural Characterization

Understanding the physical properties of pharmaceutical raw materials is key to successful drug product development and performance. Physical properties such as size/shape, morphology, particle size distribution, flow, density, dissolution profile, bioavailability and melting point enable more efficient formulation and manufacturing process development at the drug product stage. These are all offered by ALS at numerous locations.


Elemental Impurities

Elemental impurities in drug products may arise from several sources; they may be residual catalysts that were added intentionally in synthesis or they may be of unknown origin. As these impurities can be hazardous to patients their levels in excipients, drug substances, drug products and dietary supplements must be controlled and minimized. ALS has some of the world’s leading labs for Elemental analysis per the requirements outlined within ICH Q3D, USP <233> and Ph. Eur. method 2.4.20.


Extractables & Leachables Studies

ALS offers a broad range of specific and non-specific analytical techniques in support of tailored Extractable and Leachables studies. ALS help demonstrate compliance with USP <1663> and <1664> requirements in addition to USP <661> for polymer materials. Modern technologies are underpinned by significant datasets and considerable expertise that allow for quick and efficient study shaping; even for the most complex drug substances and delivery systems.
