Canadian Analytical Laboratories offers Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) for quantification of impurities in raw materials and active pharmaceutical ingredients to characterize and verify materials for QA/QC material specification requirements.
Impurity testing is typically a costly but necessary activity as regulations on pharmaceuticals have been lowering limits for impurities over the past several years. In so doing, this has necessitated detection methods to become more sensitive and selective resulting higher testing costs for pharmaceutical companies.
TGA provides a significantly more cost-effective approach as much smaller sample sizes are required to produce highly accurate and reproducible results.
We have developed in-house methods, as well follow compendial or client-provided methods. We also have deep expertise in developing new methods when no current method exists.
