Pharmaceuticals Testing Services

Any pharmaceutical product manufacturer, requires a quality control which is one of the Pre- requisite to regulatory compliances. A significant portion of the cGMP regulations and all pharmacopeia methods such as USP, IP, EP, JP, BP and In-house methods pertain to the quality control testing of products. Shiva provides expert analytical services in all areas of testing from raw materials, excipients, APIs, Bulk drugs, intermediates to finished products. Shiva's sophisticated pharmaceutical testing lab operates as an extension of your QC and Analytical R&D laboratories.

Data Integrity is being handled in compliant with (21 CFR Part 11) regulations subsections (a) to (g). All the data acquisition systems are linked through ECM software ensuring data security from generation till archival of electronic data.
