VelaLabs – A Tentamus Company now offers Analyses of Leachables & Extractables

Vienna, Berlin – In order to enlarge the service portfolio for our customers in the pharma sector Tentamus has invested in new analytical instruments. A state-of-the-art UHPLC coupled with a high resolution Q-TOF MS allows both identification and quantitation of leachable and extractable and a reliable prediction of sum formulas. Subsequently the MS/MS spectra of compounds of interest are compared with databases or reference standards. In combination with the ability to quantify, a comprehensive summary can be created and used as the basis for toxicological assessment. This further development enables the Tentamus Laboratories to offer a full one stop shop to the pharmaceutical industry.

Due to the high acquisition speed of the instrument a special algorithm collects all information, including intact mass and fragment spectra in a single run. This opens the possibility to retrospectively evaluate already measured samples and screen for certain substances without the necessity of a re-measurement, or worse, repeating of a study if a critical component is discovered during a later assessment by a toxicologist.

Furthermore a GC/MS device with a versatile automatic sample handler is in place. This allows the analysis of volatile and non-volatile compounds and therefore the conduction of all common L&E analyses is possible.

To ensure the highest level of data integrity all instruments operate under GxP.
