Contego NutriPharm is currently certified for various laboratory testing methods, with our main focus on raw materials, vitamins, minerals, water and final product analyses.
- HPTLC testing
- HPLC testing
- TOC testing
High-performance thin layer chromatography (HPTLC) is one of the sophisticated instrumental techniques based on the full capabilities of thin layer chromatography. HPTLC remains one of the most flexible, reliable, and cost-efficient separation techniques, which has established itself as the method of choice for handling complex analytical tasks ideally involving herbal drugs and botanicals.
It is used for the identification of constituents, identification and determination of impurities, and quantitative determination of active substances. Used with standardized procedures, it guarantees reproducible results, a vital element in the routine identification of complex fingerprints of plant extracts and pharmaceutical products. Because of this, HPTLC is also the most appropriate TLC technique for conformity with GMPs, time after time.
High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) is a technique in analytical chemistry used to separate, identify, and quantify each component in a mixture.
We use HPLC for separating the components of a complex biological sample, or of similar synthetic chemicals from each other.
Total Organic Carbon (TOC) is the amount of carbon found in an organic compound, which we use as a non-specific indicator of RO water quality.
- Phazir Near-infrared (NIR) spectrometer testing
- Physical testing
Compact and portable spectrometer for in-field analysis of chemical identification and material characterisation, which we use for identification on solids [raw material powders and end products (tablets, capsules, powders)].
- Microbiological testing on raw materials, final products and water
- Hardness of tablets (includes diameter and thickness of the tablets)
- Friability of tablets
- Weights of tablets and capsules
- Disintegration of tablets and capsules
- Moisture (loss on drying) of powders and raw materials
- Loose density on powdered raw materials
- Viscosity on liquids, semi-solids
- pH of liquids, semi-solids
