Chemistry Capabilities

Pharmaceutical Stability Testing – MAL has expertise in conducting stability studies for finished dosage forms.  We have tested the following dosage forms: liquids, suspensions, tablets, capsules, and gel capsules.   We have the capability of storing and analyzing products for H2 and H4 conditions.  The typical tests that are requested for stability testing are the following:  Assay, Dissolution, and Related Compounds.  Other test that are requested for various dosage forms are appearance, preservative content, alcohol content, friability, disintegration time, and content uniformity.

Pharmaceutical Release Testing – We perform finished goods testing as needed for our customers.  The finished goods testing is expedited to meet stringent time requirements.

All customer methods undergo a method technology transfer into our laboratory prior to analyzing samples.  This method can follow either a customer Method Technology Transfer (MTT) protocol or our internal procedure for MTT or Method Verification.

We conduct Method Verifications for all USP test methods prior to analyzing samples for the first time.

Method Technology Transfer and Method Verification reports are sent to the customer following the MTT or Method Verification.
