Analytical Development

Analytical method development is widely adopted as a means of ensuring that the methods used to measure the purity and potency of small molecule APIs are of high quality and suitable for the ensuing cGMP synthesis. BOC Sciences is committed to providing expert advice to our customers to ensure that all analytical needs of their projects are met. We take full account of cGMP manufacturing compliance . At BOC Sciences, our team fully understands the importance of analytical support and our dedicated analytical science and quality control experts can provide a full range of analytical method development, validation and testing services to support the entire pre-clinical phase. In addition, our dedicated stability management team extends our services throughout the product lifecycle.
