In addition to the production facility we also have a state of the art quality control laboratory which is equipped with a HPLC system, Gas Chromatography system, UV-VIS spectrophotometer, Infra-Red spectrometer, stability chambers and miscellaneous laboratory equipment. In our QC lab we are continuously testing new formulations for chemical stability thus allowing us to assign validated expiry dates to products we manufacture.
