As a manufacturer of high quality botanical extracts with more than 40 years of experience, EUROMED has achieved a great knowledge and expertise in developing laboratory services for raw material and extracts.
Validated Analytical Methods
EUROMED can supply validated analytical methods (HPLC, GC, HPTLC or UV-vis), using adaptations of the same test method for source raw material, extract and also finished products. This provides the “red-line” documentation as currently required by many countries’ medicine and health agencies. Some of the reference substances used in the analytical test are produced, and fully documented, at EUROMED’s state-of-the-art laboratory.
Stability tests of extracts are performed at EUROMED according to ICH guidelines. Therefore, we can offer stability tests of manufacturers’ finished products, under controlled temperature and humidity, and complete stability reports in CTD format.
EUROMED can determine the dissolution rates of active ingredients of solid dosage forms as, for example, tablets and capsules. This service is useful in formulation development, stability testing, quality control and as a marketing tool to compare other products on the market.
Analytical tests for potential contaminants such as heavy metals, aflatoxins, ochratoxins, pesticide residues, dioxins, PAHs, particularly Benz(A)pyren, are carried out by an established control laboratory that is regularly audited.
