Our chemists have diversified method development/validation experiences in botanical, dietary supplement, cosmetics and food safety fields. Our wide range of high quality testing methods in this brochure is a direct result of our combined knowledge and experience in analytical services for many years. In addition to method development and validation, we provide a number of process development and validation services, such as content uniformity, cleaning valid of manufacturing process.
We can help troubleshoot formulation problems, compare to national brands, improve extraction processes, and identify/recommend suitable marker claims to enhance marketability of your products. We also provide services for formulation development and validation, such as shelf-life study of both real-time and accelerated dissolution and disintegration of dosage forms.
The stability data on your raw materials and packaged finished products can be generated at Advanced Botanical Consulting & Testing, Inc. Our stability protocol is designed based on the ICH guideline that will give you the accelerated 3 month data for quick marketing need then continue on with the 2-year room temperature stability data to defend your expiration dating claim.We have multiple environmental chambers for stability study that can be set at the conditions of any of the four climatic zones as divded by the ICH (International Conference of Harmonisation) guidelines.
Provides information on the potential risks of food poisoning and/or spoilage is also our expertise in microbiology testing. It is used to simulate a microbiological contamination into the product and how they will behave during processing, distribution and subsequent handling. Challenge study helps you ensure the safety of product where potentially hazardous microorganisms might be present.
HACCP is a flow diagram of the whole food chain that maps on critical points to monitor for time and temperature. We can provide assistance in drawing up HACCP plans and training workers to use them properly.
