Sabinsa Corporation has elected the analytical testing services company Eurofins Scientific, an international leader in analytical testing with specialties in probiotic and supplement raw material analysis, as their global partner for botanical raw material ID testing as well as testing on Sabinsa’s patented extracts and probiotic ingredients.

Identity testing of proprietary ingredients can get complicated when the testing lab does not know which test methods are best for a specific ingredient. When a testing lab uses different methods than the manufacturer, or even other labs, it can cause inaccurately “failed” test results. This wastes time, money, and sometimes even good will. In response to these market and contract manufacturer challenges in ingredient verification, Eurofins will adopt proprietary methods from Sabinsa to test the company’s ingredients.

“As you look at the supply chain, the need for 3rd party verification is increasing – but it becomes increasingly difficult analytically as new products come to market and test methods are not expanded in validation,” said Anurag Pande, VP Scientific Affairs, Sabinsa. “We believe it will simplify ID testing for our customers to have a lab available with this level of knowledge on testing our proprietary ingredients.”

Proprietary methods developed by Sabinsa’s parent company Sami Labs being shared with Eurofins includes LactoSpore® enumeration along with extracts such as Curcumin C3 Complex®, BioPerine®, ForsLean® and many more, to support contract manufacturers and marketing companies looking for validation.

Sabinsa Corporation with its state of art analytical lab in India has developed several in-house analytical methods for assay of active components in herbal products. These methods have been validated using ICH guidelines for all major parameters including specificity, precision and accuracy.
