QC and Stability Testing

Companies rely on our Quality Control testing services for their clinical phase vaccines and biologics. 

Method Development

Biodextris supports you in the design of a suite of analytical assays that assess the important and critical quality attributes for your unique product.

Our team of talented scientists follow a systematic structured methodology to develop each assay optimized for your product.

Method Validation

Validation of a method is a critical step of development work. We, at Biodextris, validate your assays to demonstrate that the appropriate performance criteria are met, and the analytical target profile is achieved. Our quality management system ensures validation policies are aligned with the ICH method validation guidelines ICH Q2(R1).

We assess and verify the following assay parameters as appropriate for your project:

Specificity

Range

Accuracy

Precision

Repeatability

Intermediate Precision

Linearity

Detection Limit

Quantification Limit

Robustness

USP methods are performed as defined, or are adapted, customized and validated as appropriate.

Method Transfer

Our clients and their situations are all different and as such Biodextris can offer up a wide array of options when it comes to method transfer. On inward bound method transfers we can take in a method and simply transfer and execute, or if requested, we can offer our expertise to further optimize it.

With outward bound transfers we offer full support to help our clients (and their partners) get our new methods up and running with comprehensive documentation and access to our team’s expertise. Quality is our guarantee!

QC and Stability Testing

Clinical Drug Substance/Product Analysis

We support you to confidently release your clinical product by executing validated assays which form the backbone of your product monograph or IND CMC section, and establish the quality, efficacy and safety of your product.

Our technologies allow complete analysis of bulk drug substance and liquid or lyophilized drug product, and the validated analytical methods are performed under rigorous quality oversight, following defined standard operating procedures.

Your data integrity is assured and your results are handled securely.

 

Clinical Drug Substance/Product Stability

We help you build a stability plan that captures the essential storage-dependent characteristics of your product to verify quality, efficacy and safety are maintained and providing critical shelf-life determination data.

The curated selection of stability-indicating assays are implemented at the defined time-points, and validated storage conditions are employed. Be assured that your stability assays are never considered routine by our diligent scientific team.
