Evaporative Light Scattering Detectors

Corrosion testing

Parallel synthesis units (eg for preparation of validation: determination of normal  operation and proven acceptable ranges NOR/PAR)

Preparative HPLC (for impurity isolation and development of preparative separation processes) 


The cornerstone of any product development effort is the analytical characterization and validation of all raw materials, in-process materials and finished product. OmniChem’s well-designed analytical programs satisfy regulatory requirements and work to assure the success of the development program. Analytical Scientists customize phase-appropriate analytical programs to the specific needs of your unique molecule delivering a comprehensive understanding and characterization of the molecule for each stage of development and commercialization.

Reference lots or standards are incorporated throughout the analytical program and are utilized as controls for assays used during the development and characterization of your product. Every time your drugs substance is manufactured, we compare your drugs substance against the standard to ensure it has comparable quality and purity.
