Analytical Testing Capabilities

The foundation of data modeling for conducted studies exists with data generation. Data is generated using analytical testing equipment. The development of methods specific to the test product and equipment used is critical for producing precise and accurate measurements. Chiral Laboratories has the following analytical method capabilities.

High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) with Ultraviolet (UV), Mass spectrometric (MS) and Circular Dichroism (CD) detection

Gas Chromatography (GC) with Flame Ionization (FID), Mass Spectrometry (MS), Thermal Conductivity (TCD) detection. Sample introduction by Headspace (HS), Direct Liquid Injection (DI), Solid Phase Micro Extraction (SPME)

Ultra Violet – Visible Spectroscopy

Dissolution testing apparatus – Testing performance characteristics of formulations and examining dissolution profiles

Vertical Diffusion Apparatus – Testing performance characteristics of topical formulations in relation to skin permeation

Particle size determination and zeta potential in solutions using a particle size analyzer

Microscopy and Imaging Equipment

X-Ray Powder Diffraction (XRPD) – Determination of specific polymorphs and crystal structure arrangements

Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) – Thermal analysis to characterize material properties
