Natural Products and Dietary Supplements

Echinacea flowersFood and Drug Administration (FDA) cGMP standards require inspection of nutraceutical product ingredients and dietary supplement ingredients to ensure that the correct materials are used and to standardize ingredients to ensure product consistency. These measures call for 100% lot testing of raw materials and final product. NIR analysis is used widely throughout the pharmaceutical industry and is recognized for material testing and identification by the FDA and United States Pharmacopeia (USP)


LabSpec® 5000 in the goLab™ Mobile Workstation is ideally suited for truly portable and non-destructive raw material inspection where and when it's needed.ASD’s portable and bench top measurement solutions offer cost-effective means for not only quality control throughout the manufacturing process, but also at-line analysis, inspection of incoming raw materials. ASD analyzers and software meet compliance requirements set under 21 CFR Part 11, and guidelines for USP 1119, by providing a technology platform for validatable, qualitative and quantitative test procedures.
