SSCI offers a wide variety of analytical techniques. Please see Services and Techniques for a complete listing and for details about each technique. 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.
