Stability Studies – Pharmaceutical

Nelson Labs Europe provides services in every step of the life cycle of a drug product, small or large molecules:

  1. Stability testing during drug development
  2. Formal stability testing:
    • Forced degradation studies
    • Photo stability testing according to ICH guidelines
    • Identification and synthesis of unknown degradation products and impurities
    • Development and validation of stability-indicating methods
    • Stability analyses
    • Registration batches
  3. Ongoing stability testing

Nelson Labs Europe has gained experience in analyzing stability samples for more than 10 years for evaluation of the leached impurities and interaction with drug matrices. Now, Nelson Labs Europe offers the capability to combine core stability testing services with world-class extractables and leachables. Both stability and leachable programs are run in parallel in order to differentiate drug substance degradation products from impurities, respectively, and expedite your projects.

Additionally, we offer identification of unknowns and synthesis thereof, for quantitative monitoring for subsequent stability and/or leachable projects.
