HerbalGram Article Details Procedures for Choosing a Contract Analytical Lab for Dietary Ingredients
Date:9/16/2013

AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Navigating the extensive and complex world of the US Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) dietary supplement rules and regulations for current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs) requires supplement manufacturers to be highly diligent in compliance. This is especially true when selecting contract analytical laboratories to verify the authenticity and quality of raw materials and finished products. Three highly qualified experts present a comprehensive review of this process in the current issue of HerbalGram, the peer-reviewed, quarterly journal of the nonprofit American Botanical Council (ABC).(1)

Since many herb and other dietary supplement manufacturers do not have — and are not required to have — analytical laboratories on site, they must outsource required analyses of raw materials to third-party laboratories. These contract labs provide an extensive range of testing services; manufacturers should begin the selection process by identifying their particular needs and matching them with a lab that specializes in the appropriate methods.
