Excipient choice and the maintenance of exceptionally high standards of performance in use are absolutely key to the success of most modern pharmaceutical products.
At SGS, we have a network of laboratories which examines excipient characteristics, their degradation over time in bulk storage, degradation in storage in use, packaging characteristics and so on. We help manufacturers, buyers and end users to achieve optimisation of storage, shelf life and performance, as well as allowing compliance needs to be monitored and reported as necessary.
Whilst excipients are the lower cost and less active part of any end use formulation, they play a vital role in delivery, storage and quality of pharmaceutical products. Establishing and optimising excipient choice and use is recognised as a key factor in the overall performance. With our pool of industry specialists and cutting-edge laboratory facilities, SGS is an acknowledged leader in the fields of testing and data production where excipients are concerned.
