In the United States, there are approximately 810,000 people that work at chemical companies. That number includes those who are in the pharmaceutical sector. Custom radiolabeling is an important part of the work that’s done in creating new pharmaceuticals. When it comes to custom radiolabeling compounds, there are a variety of methods that can be used. Here are a few of the methods that can be helpful for preclinical or clinical studies.Read more
Good Manufacturing Practice — GMP — is essential for ensuring that pharmaceutical products are produced according to the standards put in place by the FDA. These GMP standards are designed to help minimize the risk of contamination and harm to consumers. Today, technology has only helped to further improve these standards, with cleanrooms now able to maintain humidity at as close as a plus or minus 1% tolerance. Improvements such as these help ensure products aren’t compromised, both during testing and during storage.
Currently, the United States holds more than 45% of the total global pharmaceutical market. However, despite maintaining this foothold, there can still be confusion based on the differences between GMP and GLP testing lab standards and regulations. While both are testing laboratories, they are very different when compared and contrasted against each other.Read more
Pharmaceutical companies spend billions of dollars and several years to introduce one drug to the market. A single drug may require about $2 billion and 10 years of testing. Each stage of the test has a set of unique challenges, costs, and timelines that a pharmaceutical company must consider.

The pharmaceutical industry is one of the only markets in the United States that can be expected to remain relatively steady. This is not only due to its size, but its necessity.Read more
When it comes to laboratory testing, there are two terms that are commonly used: a GMP and GLP testing lab. It’s understandable to get these two types of laboratory testing confused. After all, Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) regulations and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) regulations both relate to laboratory testing. However, GMP and GLP testing labs are very different.
The American pharmaceutical industry is one of the biggest in the world. Due to the fact that the United States exhibits a greater acceptance of pharmaceutical products than many countries, and even has a booming pharmaceutical sales industry, it’s clear that this particular industry can withstand a lot of stress, including that of the current pandemic. However, it’s not without its particular concerns.Read more
Chemical purity refers to an element contains a single substance, without any other element tarnishing its standalone existence. Creating products that offer chemical purity can be quite an involved process. However, it’s necessary in order for us to have vaccines, medicines, and even everyday household products. To learn more about chemical purity, how it is reached in a lab setting, and why it’s significant, continue reading.Read more
Perhaps there is no location that should be more carefully kept up and maintained than a pharmaceutical laboratory. Pharmaceutical labs are obviously responsible for creating and maintaining drugs and medications that will eventually be distributed to the general public.Read more
Laboratories hold a great deal of importance in the United States. In fact, the country is currently the number one producer of chemical products. These chemical products can include pharmaceutical products, as well as radiolabeled compounds and much more.Read more
