The chemistry department at AATL is equipped with a wide range of industry standard and specialized instrumentation to meet your testing needs. This range includes:

  • Gas Chromatographs with FID / TCD detection and headspace capability
  • High Performance Liquid Chromatographs (HPLC) with UV and Fluorescence detection
  • Total Organic Carbon (TOC) analyzer
  • UV-Visible Spectrophotometer
  • Autotitrator (Karl/ Fischer, acid/base, precipitation titrations)
  • FTIR Spectrophotometer
  • Polarimeter (optical rotation, specific rotation)
  • Melting Range Apparatus
  • pH Meter
  • Conductivity Meter

Compendial Testing

We can provide quality compendial and non-compendial chemical analysis of raw materials and final products. Compendial testing of pharmaceuticals (APIs and drug products), food additives, and reagent chemicals is performed under one of the following compendia:

  • United States Pharmacopoeia/ National Formulary
  • European Pharmacopoeia
  • Japanese Pharmacopoeia
  • Food Chemicals Codex
  • American Chemical Society Reagent Chemicals

Advanced Analytical Testing Laboratories is DEA registered for handling Class I through Class IV controlled substances. While most testing is performed according to USP monographs, we can develop and validate methods for controlled actives and the drug products made with the same.

Ethylene Oxide Residuals

We can also offer testing for EO sterilization residuals in medical devices for both FDA (ppm limits) and ISO 10993-7 compliance. Headspace and water extraction methods can be run depending on the device category. Note that headspace extraction can only be used for EO, not ECH or EG, as their boiling points are too high for headspace sampling to be effective.

Laboratory instrumentation includes:

  • HPLC System
  • GC System with Headspace
  • Conductivity Meter
  • pH Meter
  • TOC Analyzer
  • Titrators
  • Viscometers
  • Dissolution Apparatus
  • Refractometer
  • FTIR Spectrophotometer
  • UV-VIS Spectrophotometer
  • Melting Point Apparatus
  • Karl Fischer
  • Bulk/Tap Density
  • Polarimeter
