Heavy Metals Testing

Why Do You Need Heavy Metals Testing?

When it comes to pharmaceutical development and manufacturing, USP testing standards for heavy metals ensure quality, purity and consistency. With new regulations recently put in place, ensuring safe levels of elemental impurities has become more difficult to navigate. With the help of a professional testing laboratory, you can ensure the longevity of your brand.

CPTSM is committed to both our clients and their consumers. By determining the types and quantities of elemental impurities in our clients’ products, we minimize risk for the consumer and ensure our clients’ success.

Our Departments

Based on the individual needs of our clients, we offer a wide range of support across various departments.

  • Clinical — Efficacy trials can be performed for safety, consumer in-use, and to support claims such as ‘dermatologist-tested’ and ‘ophthalmologist-tested.’
  • In-Vitro Toxicology — Our In-Vitro Toxicology department assists clients when they are looking to perform non-animal (animal-free) toxicology testing.
  • Microbiology — Microbial contamination and preservative efficacy testing are key to cosmetic and OTC drug products.
