Product Characterization

The product characteristics of a pharmaceutical material can influence decisions made in formulation, process development, manufacturing, quality control, and lot release testing. BA Sciences can test pharmaceutical products to determine specific physical and/or chemical properties. These capabilities are crucial to ensure compliance with FDA and EMA/MHRA guidelines. In addition, the data we collect during this procedure also helps guide you to make more-informed decisions at every stage of production.

BA Sciences’s scientists using our modern molecular characterization laboratory can provide you with detailed information about the makeup of your product so you can ensure your product’s safety, purity, identity, and potency. With our help, you can keep your processes in-line with regulations so you can provide the highest-quality products to your customers.
