Testing in the Pharmaceutical Industry

The pharmaceutical industry is a heavily regulated industry. At the same time, however, it is also one of the most innovation- and research-intensive sectors.

When producing medicine and pharmaceutical products quality assurance is especially important. Hence, laboratory testing is an indispensable step in all production processes at pharmaceutical companies.

Before medicine is approved to be sold to consumers, it has to take several comprehensive tests such as identity, purity and concentration checks.

However, finding laboratories with an appropriate certification can be time-consuming and costly.

Many pharmaceutical companies are using testxchange to reduce the time spent on researching laboratories and simplifying testing project processing. Its database with more than 10,000 laboratories facilitates a quick search of specialized testing providers and smooth processing of testing projects.
