GMP Method Validation

Averica Discovery Services, Inc.

We have two distinct GMP validation departments; chemistry and microbiology. Each validation department is dedicated to development, validation, verification, recovery and inter-laboratory transfer of analytical methods. Typical samples include raw materials, Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API), finished products, cleaning and environmental samples.

  • Determining the dosage of active ingredients and finished products
  • Degradation studies for the development of stability indicating methods
  • Dissolution studies for all types of solid dosage forms
  • Quantification and qualification of residual solvents and impurities/related substances
  • Cleaning methods validation: research and quantification of washing reagents and recovery on SS plates and other materials

We perform technological transfers of existing methods from other laboratories and also provide verifications of Pharmacopeias.
