All analytical work is carried out in strict compliance with cGMP requirements. Two types of reports are available for analytical standard priority submissions:

  1. Non-Interpretative Report – A cGMP report will be issued in ~ 5 business days. The study will be billed at analysis cost only.
  2. Interpretative Report – A cGMP interpretative report will be issued in ~7 to 10 business days. The study will be billed at analysis cost plus data interpretation cost.

If you have questions, please contact us.
