LABORATORY SERVICES

Jarrow Industries’ analytical laboratories provide one-stop comprehensive analysis and testing services of dietary supplements. We analyze raw materials (both active ingredients and excipients) for identity, chemical, and microbiological, heavy metals, organoleptic and other physical properties. Finished products are also tested in a similar manner to ensure the quality of the products. Our laboratories are equipped with state-of-the-art analytical instruments such as:

  • Jarrow in house lab technician
    thermo-nicolet-300x400

  • ICP/MS, THERMO X SERIES 2 ICP-MS WITH CETAC ASX-520 AUTOSAMPLER

    Top-of-the-line ICP/MS, capable of detecting and quantifying elements in ppb (parts per billion) and even ppt (parts per trillion) levels in some elements, this instrument is an invaluable piece in detecting heavy metal contamination.

    DIONEX ULTIMATE 3000 RS, WITH 10 COLUMNS SWITCHING CAPABILITY

    Excellent separations combined with short analytical times, this extraordinary UHPLC instrument provide reliable and consistent performance. With the ability of housing up to 10 columns simultaneously, method development and switching between different methods can be performed efficiently without stopping the instrument.

    AGILENT 1100 HPLC SYSTEM

    A true “workhorse,” this popular HPLC instrument provides robust and reliable performance for routine analytical work.

    THERMO ISQ, SINGLE QUADRUPOLE GC-MS

    This versatile instrument features both FID and MS detectors, capable of identifying and quantifying a wide range of chemicals from volatile active ingredients to solvent contaminants.

    LABORATORY THERMO-NICOLET 6700 FTIR/FTNIR

    Thermo-Nicolet 6700 can perform both as an FTIR (mid-range IR) and FTNIR (near-IR). It is a valuable identification tool for raw materials and blends. It can also be used for final products and quantifications.
