We offer a wide variety of analytical techniques and perform all work in strict compliance with cGMP requirements. Two types of reports are available for analytical standard priority submissions:

  • Non-interpretative Report: We will issue a cGMP report in approximately five business days. The study will be billed at analysis cost only.
  • Interpretative Report: We will issue a cGMP interpretative report in approximately seven to 10 business days. The study will be billed at analysis cost plus data interpretation cost.

Submitting a Sample

To submit a sample to us for analytical testing, send:

  1. Sample
  2. Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS)
  3. The appropriate form
  4. PO number or credit card information

If you’re sending samples without a quote, please complete the services request form.
To submit additional samples, use the additional samples form.
For all other samples, including those for quoted projects, use the sample submission form.
