Extractables | Leachables: Tests for Polymer-based Process Components

As a manufacturer, you must ensure that a comprehensive extractables and leachables analysis (E&L) is performed. Only then will your pharmaceutical product be able to pass regulatory review. Sartorius has created extensive extractables guides for the different single use components that we manufacture. These guides form an important basis in the context of process validation and are readily available to all of our customers. However, the final step in process safety is the complete validation of the individual component with the individual contact fluid. Our experts support you in handling this task: Thanks to years of experience, we can draw on a full gamut of techniques that are cutting edge in the industry. In conjunction we also employ standard techniques such as HPLC-UV, GC-MS, HS-GC/MS, LC-MS, LC-MS-MS, FTIR, ICP-MS, ICP-OES, NVR and TOC.
