Method Validation: BioChem's method validation is flexible and customizable to fit your needs. We will follow any client-supplied validation format or make modifications to our standard defined protocol as requested by the client. Method Validation is a process of conducting a number of tests intended to prove the authenticity of a method. BioChem uses the following parameters: linearity, range, precision, accuracy, and specificity. The analysis requires reference standards, placebo and/or samples with known concentrations.

Cleaning Validation: BioChem's cleaning validation is used to ensure that cleaning procedures in equipment are eliminating residues to predetermined levels of suitability. This ensures that the quality of the next product manufactured is not affected by the residue from the previous product.
Stability Testing & Expiration Date Validation:
Since the creation of pharmaceutical expiration dating requirements, BioChem's analytical services have been proficient in providing the storage conditions necessary to meet both regulatory and client requirements.

Stability Programs we offer include:
USP/ICH Stability Programs
Customer Specified Stability

Additional Test Services:
Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC): Using glass plates, the TLC technique is utilized to separate compounds in a product and/or determine the purity of a substance.
Flashpoint: The flash point is the lowest temperature at which the vapor formed above a pool of the liquid ignites in air at a pressure of 1 atmosphere. Flash point is a characteristic used to determine the hazardous nature of a material
SPF Testing: In-vitro SPF analyzer is used to measure the sun protection factor in the product.

Facilities and Equipment:
Our temperature and humidity-controlled chambers are continuously monitored for any environmental changes. We regularly invest in capital improvements to ensure
all our testing facilities have the latest testing equipment.
