Sabinsa and Eurofins enter into global ID testing agreement for proprietary ingredients

Published: 6-Mar-2018

Sabinsa  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 its 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  third 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-the-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.
