Learn more about chemical and ingredient verification.

Eurofins SF Analytical offers chemical and ingredient verification services for food and beverage ingredients, pharmaceuticals (APIs, excipients), raw materials, finished products, as well as personal care products. Our experts are here to assist you in ensuring the quality and safety of your product, by confirming the purity and content, and insuring there are no contaminants present.

How is the testing performed? 

Typically two types:

  • Compendial – according to a recognized method
    • USP/NF, FCC, EP, JP, BP, ACS, AOAC
    • Dissolution
    • Stability
  • Non-Compendial – according to a client, industry, or developed method
    • Method validations, verifications, transfers
    • Foreign material identification/contaminants
    • Investigative problem solving

Who does this type of testing?

  • Chemical manufacturers
  • Chemical resellers/distributors
  • Ingredient manufacturers
  • Pharmaceutical companies
