Medical & Health - Product Testing

Our testing activities provide an extensive array of testing, calibration, inspection and evaluation capabilities across a diverse range of technologies. Our testing capability is the most extensive and comprehensive service of its kind in Southern Africa.

We supply a comprehensive testing service from our pharmaceutical laboratory which performs full testing in accordance with the pharmacoepia monographs for raw materials and finished formulation; re-assay of products for identification and for active ingredient quantification for compliance to the Medicines Control Council (MCC) requirements for product import; and vitamin and mineral testing of complimentary medicines. In the Medical Device Sector our current focus in this sector is on testing of medical devices such as syringes, needles, catheters, blades, sutures, swabs, bandages, surgical gloves, condoms, radioactive dosimeters and dental materials. The scope of testing could be extended to cover implants, and surgical, medical and hospital equipment should regulatory demand be created.
