Project Deliverables

Annual stability is a requirement that all companies must complete. Over the years Broughton has continued to demonstrate the capability to provide compliant ICH storage and GMP testing for our clients. This involves samples being removed from their storage cabinet, tested, and results reported to the customer within 15 working days.

Since 2016 over 160 stability studies have been managed by Broughton for this customer. Our services to the client include protocol review and approval, study loading into our Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) LabHQ to allow trending to be performed by the client, analytical testing including Assay, Related Substances, and other stability-indicating parameters. We also provide results interpretation including the review of trends to identify potential issues that may occur at future time points.
