Microtest Laboratories is an Industry Leader in ICH Stability Testing

AGAWAM, Mass., May 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Microtest Laboratories is an industry leader in providing ICH stability testing, compliant with International Conference of Harmonisation (ICH) guidelines, to manufacturers of pharmaceuticals products. The testing is offered as part of Microtest's complete portfolio of contract manufacturing testing services.

Before a drug product is submitted for regulatory approval, ICH stability testing helps demonstrate that the product will continue to be safe and efficacious for its stated shelf life. Real-time ICH stability testing is conducted at room temperatures to reproduce actual storage conditions. Accelerated stability testing occurs at higher temperatures -- up to 55 degrees Celsius -- to simulate longer spans.

Microtest typically tests three conformance lots, to some target of 6, 9, 12, 18, or 24 months. Total elapsed time of all testing is usually 1 year or less. Microtest conducts tests for sterility, endotoxins, and particulates. Microtest also checks that the concentration of active ingredients is within specifications, and watch for evidence that real-time or accelerated aging has affected drug concentration or purity. Moreover, Microtest is one of a few labs that offer photostability testing to monitor the effect of prolonged light exposure.

"Unlike some other labs, at Microtest advanced SCADA systems monitor test chambers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. So customers and regulators can be sure humidity and temperature remain within prescribed ranges," said Steven Richter, Ph. D., President and Scientific Founder of Microtest Laboratories ( "And since we offer a full range of drug testing at a single source, products aren't exposed to temperature or humidity hazards in transit between tests."

Microtest is widely recognized for its problem-solving expertise in pharmaceutical contract manufacturing, aseptic processing, and pharmaceutical packaging. Services include single-source production and testing, plus dedicated product management.
