API (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient) is the substance contained in medicine. Medicine contains a small amount of the active ingredient which has high effectiveness that causes the desired effect of the Medicine.

APIs Testing

Every drug or medicine contains one or more type of APIs in their formation. Lab testing of these APIs are essential and compulsory in the pharmaceuticals and healthcare industries. Some of the mostly known techniques for API are high-resolution mass spectrometry and gas and liquid chromatography methods.

Lab Testing of Raw Materials

The raw materials and dosage in the Pharma sector must be consistence for batch production. One must ensure that particulates, residues, extractables, and leachables that can permeate products are not allowed to propagate to market. As per FDA rules, raw material testing is compulsory to identify its purity, safety and stability.

Lab Testing of Excipients

Excipient materials are inert pharmaceutical substance used to improve thermodynamic stability, shelf-lives and control drug release rates. Pharmaceutical lab testing is required to assess excipients effectiveness along with the APIs.
