For many types of processes and technical investigations, it is possible to run tests at your plant, eg. monitoring levels of some components during a process. In other cases, it will be necessary to take samples at your site and send them to the laboratory for analysis and testing to help solve a problem. You can consider us to be your temporary but trusted employee. During an investigation we can stay in touchusing telephone, FAX, or E-mail. We conduct Quality Control (QC) assays for 12 pharmaceutical companies in Florida.We run microbiological quality control tests and challenge tests for numerous clients.The laboratory is licensed by the DEA for drugs of abuse and is a registered FDA (UNS# 790112734) laboratory for foods, drugs, and cosmetics. Most of our analyses and tests are given in standard references, such as CFR, USP, NF, BP, FDA/BAM, MIL-STD, ASTM, AOAC, AWWA, APHA, and AATCC.
