Analytical Laboratory Capabilities

Our analytical laboratory capabilities encompass the entire range of testing methodology required to identify and analyze all the OTC drug activities in USP36. For the entire range of products we formulate and manufacture, we can assay for every single ingredient contained. The analysis capabilities offered at Bell are:

Ultra Violet (UV) Spectrophotometry

Ultra Violet (UV) Spectrophotometry

 

Using the UV spectrophotometry, we can accurately measure even small concentrations of numerous organic, inorganic, and metallic compounds using their property of absorbance of selective wavelengths of visible/ultra violet light rays. At Bell, we use the UV spectrophotometry instrument to determine zinc oxide, titanuim dioxide, sunscreens, dyes, polysaccharides, and oxychloro compounds.

Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR)

Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR)

When Bell’s lab staff uses the Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), we have quality on our mind.

The FTIR spectroscopy instrument is used to provide you with nothing but exceptional quality of work. The quality control instrument can help in confirming the identity of as well as detecting the presence of foreign matter in raw materials. Using the FTIR spectroscopy, we can ensure that every product manufactured by us is of the highest quality. It is achieved by comparing the unique signature of your compound with our extensive library of standard spectra.

High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC)

High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC)

Bell  uses High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) as part of our formulation analysis.

The HPLC is the most powerful and widely used identification and analysis technique available today. The talented staff at Bell use the HPLC technique to precisely identify and quarantine the active ingredients in your product.

Complete with high precision automatic injection, dual wavelength detection, and both gradient and isocratic elution features, it is gives our staff the edge in analysis.

Gas Chromatography (GC)

Gas Chromatography (GC)

The Gas chromatography method is complementary to HPLC, and allows the identification and quantification of compounds that are not amenable to HPLC analysis. Our Shimadzu GC-14A is equipped with an FID detector, auto-injector, capillary column capabilities, and temperature program features. The combined capabilities of our GC and HPLC instruments allow us to identify and quantify a plethora of organic compounds of cosmetic and pharmaceutical interest.

Quality Assurance

Bell’s commitment to quality permeates all areas of the manufacturing process. Right from inspecting components and chemicals to examining the finished products before shipping, we assure that every product that we produce will meet the highest quality standard. Furthermore, our commitment for quality is extensively supported by our department of microbiology.

 

During the product development stage, the department tests every formula’s preservative system to ensure that it is strong enough to keep customers safe from harmful microorganisms. After a product is filled into its final packaging, quality tests are performed again to ensure that it’s completely safe for use before shipping it to our customers.
