To compete in the fine chemicals, pharmaceutical and biotechnology markets, companies are looking for more flexibility and specialisation. Outsourcing certain activities such as analytical development, validation and control allows them to gain agility and efficiency in both routine analytical processes and those requiring the development of new methods. Outsourcing also makes it possible to cope with seasonal increases in these activities.

Attentive to the demands of the sector, Applus+ Laboratories offers a service for the development and validation of analytical methods, quality control of raw materials and medicines and stability studies.

We are a Pharmaceutical Laboratory accredited by the AEMPS for the Physical-Chemical Quality Control (GMP) of investigational medicinal products for human and veterinary use. In addition, we work under the standards of the European (EMEA) and American (FDA) pharmacopoeias.
