Compendial Method Testing


Galbraith Laboratories provides much of the monograph testing as found in the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP), European Pharmacopoeia (EP), Japanese Pharmacopoeia (JP), Food Chemicals Codex (FCC), and ACS Reagent Chemicals. Galbraith also performs some standards included in AOAC, AOCS, Standard Methods, TAPPI, EPA, and ASTM.

Monograph testing may include assay testing, purity testing, limit testing, identification, and physical properties testing. The analysis of full monographs is available with a 15 business day turnaround time (7 business days for rush).

Some compendia such as USP, EP, and JP require performance verification for all procedures that are not basic compendial test procedures such as loss on drying, residue on ignition, various wet chemical procedures such as acid value, and simple instrumental determinations such as pH measurements. Galbraith maintains a library of previously verified procedures and offers method verification services for new materials.

Galbraith also offers method validation within accordance of USP General Chapters <233> Elemental Impurities and <467> Residual Solvents. Click here to find out more.
