Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) and Excipient Release Testing

Preparing Sample for IR ScanThe University of Iowa Pharmaceuticals (UIP) performs release testing on active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) and excipients according to various standard compendia (USP/EP/JP/BP/etc.) or other provided methods. 

  • All materials supplied by UIP are tested to current USP standards (additional testing can be performed upon request). 
  • Upon arrival materials are held in a secure quarantine area until release testing is completed.
  • Once the appropriate release testing has been performed materials are moved into a controlled warehousing area until ready for use in production. 
  • UIP works with a number of qualified subcontractors to perform specialized tests. 
  • Alternatively, if our manufacturing services are not needed samples of raw materials can be provided to UIP for release testing.
