Quality Control

At Biotics Research Corporation, we manufacture our own branded products on site, in our own state of the art facilities, allowing for complete control of the entire manufacturing process.

In our on-site laboratories, the highly skilled members of our Quality Control Unit (QCU), utilize modern, sophisticated technologies and validated analytical methods to test incoming raw materials, monitor manufacturing processes, perform in-process testing, and test all finished products prior to their release for shipment. In fact, many aspects of our cGMPs (current Good Manufacturing Practices) exceed the new, recently enacted FDA guidelines for dietary supplements in order to ensure the safety and effectiveness of our products.

The QCU has the authority to approve and/or reject all specifications and procedures associated with the production and release of all raw materials, packaging materials, and finished products, including test methods and results, instrument calibrations, and processing records. The QCU conducts all internal audits and validates and audits all raw material and packaging suppliers and service vendors as well.

All incoming raw materials are subject to appropriate testing prior to their release for production. Tests conducted include identity, potency, biological activity, microbiological, including bacteria, yeast, and mold (including aflatoxins) and heavy metals (arsenic, cadmium, lead & mercury). Retained samples are maintained of all raw materials and finished products for future testing requirements (raw material stability and finished product expiration date verification).

All bulk finished products (tablets & capsules) are inspected and subjected to metal detection prior to being sampled by the QCU. They are then subject to appropriate disintegration and/or dissolution testing, and potency testing prior to being released to packaging. All liquid and powder products are tested for potency prior to packaging as well. Finally, microbiological testing is performed on all finished products and document reconciliation is completed prior to being released for shipment.

All testing is performed by our trained QCU personnel using state of the art laboratory instrumentation including High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS), Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry (AAS), gel electrophoresis, Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), Ultra Violet spectrophotometry, Thin Layer chromatography and Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS).

Unlike many companies struggling to meet the GMP requirements established by the FDA and being forced into implementing quality programs, extensive quality control has always been part of the corporate fabric of Biotics Research Corporation.

From day one, the mantra of Biotics Research Corporation has been “Innovation and Quality.” Our goals remain unchanged – utilize innovative ideas and carefully researched concepts with advanced techniques to develop products of superior quality and effectiveness – bringing you “The Best of Science and Nature”.
