To ensure that you get quality nutraceuticals we conduct four tests in the QC laboratory which you will find detailed below.

We have an onsite dedicated quality control team

FTIR Spectroscopy

For each material that enters our site, we carry out an FTIR Spectroscopy. This device allows us to identify each raw material. This ensures that any material used in your product is exactly what it says on the label. Each product is weighed and measured for uniformity, and we carry out tests for hardness and friability of every tablet, as well as dissolution of tablets and capsules.

Product Weighing

Each product undergoes a weighing and measuring for uniformity. Only calibrated and approved scales are in use for this test. This helps ensure that products are achieving label claim.

Hardness & Friability Testing​

We carry out tests for hardness and friability on every tablet. The hardness test allows us to measure how strong a tablet is by pushing it to the point of breaking. Meanwhile, the friability machine tests the durability of tablets. This is critical to ensure your product arrives undamaged after leaving our facilities.

Dissolution Testing

For tablets and capsules, we perform dissolution tests. This assesses the time it takes for the product to dissolve after consumption. When considering a regular or slow-release product, dissolution times will vary.

Producing Quality Nutraceuticals

If any of these tests fail to meet our standard, the QC team will reject the product. This will then be re-evaluated by the NPD and Manufacturing teams until we are in compliance.

For tablets and capsules, dissolution tests are routinely performed during the development and production process for quality control purposes.
