Supplement brands are required to evaluate their products for safety under federally mandated GMPs (good manufacturing practices), but many brands don’t have the expertise or equipment in house to conduct appropriate tests. Brands can turn to third-party contract laboratories to conduct these assays, but selecting the right partner is crucial for safety, legal and—often—financial success.
In this podcast, Blake Ebersole, president of NaturPro Scientific, discusses the selection process and how a supplement brand can chose the best contract lab. With Sandy Almendarez, editor in chief, INSIDER, Ebersole covers:
Why contract labs need to be verified and evaluated like every other supplier the supplement brand uses
How long it usually takes a brand to research, interview and choose a contract lab
When it’s OK to conduct a paper audit and when it makes sense to conduct an onsite audit of a contract lab.
