Analytical Chemistry

Providing analytical chemistry services for over 30 years, Avecia Pharma has established streamlined processes supported by experienced staff to provide reliable, expedited testing for nearly all drug substances, products, and components.

Partner with Avecia Pharma's Analytical Chemistry team

Avecia Pharma's long-standing team is committed to providing expert and timely analytical chemistry support. We offer high quality, affordable compendial testing according to USP/NF, EP, BP, JP, ACS and customer-specified monographs in support of raw materials, in-process analysis, and finished product release testing.

We specialize in handling drug substances, drug products, and nearly all dosage forms including tablets, capsules, semi-solids, parenterals, sterile, transdermal, and inhalation products. Our device specialists oversee routine chemical and functional testing of packaging (elastomers, glass, plastics) and component testing. We also assist with vendor and contract manufacturer qualification. These essential services are why Avecia Pharma has earned a solid reputation in the industry since 1988.

At Avecia Pharma, our mission is to provide our clients with outsourcing solutions that make their drug development priorities possible.
