Analytical Testing Services

GAAS Analytical is an independent contract testing laboratory for natural products, botanical drugs, phytochemicals, and dietary supplements. We test raw materials, intermediates and finished products according to cGMP regulations for identity and purity. Where they exist, we use regulatory and widely accepted industry methods (USP, AOAC, INA). When these methods do not yet exist,, GAAS has a track record of developing new in-house methods for novel and difficult analyses. Many of these have since been accepted by as official USP standards. Our laboratory is DEA registered and cGMP compliant, offering reliable and accurate results, timely turnaround times, and unsurpassed responsiveness.

We specialize in testing:

Raw Materials

The raw materials are the most important part of a retail product. Moreover, testing your raw materials is required under the dietary supplement cGMP regulation. We offer a full array of raw material testing that meet GMP, USP and FDA guidelines.

Finished Products

Every sample is unique, and GAAS specializes in adapting. We offer analytical testing for all forms of natural products/dietary supplements, including tablets, capsules, softgels, powders, tinctures, oils, extracts and beadlets. The journey doesn�t stop at analysis: we work with you to determine the underlying cause of any unexpected results.

Stability Testing

GAAS Analytical offers stability protocols for your products according to the ICH Guidelines. GAAS can provide you the accelerated 3 month data for immediate market release and then follow with the 2-year room temperature stability data to defend your expiration date claim.
