Farmacopea Microbiológico

We perform microbiological analyses for the pharmaceutical industry with methods adapted to the European Pharmacopoeia

The European Pharmacopoeia consists of a set of general monographs on the manufacturing of medicines, general substance and medicinal product analytical methods, and general formulation requirements (tablets, capsules, injections, etc.). The pharmaceutical sector can also use these analytical methods for substances and medicinal products not described in the pharmacopoeia, and for the analysis of raw materials used in the pharmaceutical sector, cosmetics and food supplements. All medicines sold in the 36 member states of the European Pharmacopoeia must meet these quality standards to ensure that the products obtained from pharmacies and other legal suppliers are safe for consumers.

For this reason, pharmaceutical companies are required to carry out control analyses in accordance with the methodologies described in the European Pharmacopoeia documents.
