Quality control

Quality control is one of the key issues in the field of pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry. Its implementation involves placing on the market batches that comply with the provisions regarding specifications, maintenance, and lifetime, while ensures consumer safety.

The increasing demand on assay control, usually adjusted to international standards, carry a high cost in personnel, equipment, calibration and interlaboratory programs. Hence, many industries opt for outsourcing some of these procedures, if not all, leaving duly Authorized and competent Laboratories, the responsibility of controlling their products.
