Supplement testing labs play a vital role in independent verification and testing activities. Testing protocols designed to ensure scientific validity can vary—depending on numerous circumstances—as can an individual lab’s areas of expertise. Turnaround time and cost are key considerations when selecting a contract lab partner; however, quality and capability are equally important, and can be assessed via thorough qualification procedures such as onsite audits, documentation review and certifications.

Takeaways for Your Business:

• Even manufacturers with in-house labs often need to use a contract lab due to a wide range of needs.
• Third-party testing labs can also help food brands ensure they meet ISO and regulatory requirements.
• Testing needs to be conducted at various stages throughout product development and release.
