Stability Testing

The purpose of Stability Testing is to provide evidence on how the quality of a drug substances or drug products varies with time under the influence of a variety of environmental factors such as temperature, humidity and to establish a retest peroid for the drug substances or a shelf life for the drug products and recommended storage conditions.


We are performing stability studies as per ICH guidelines (Q1A(R2)) for new drug substances and products.
