ALCOA+ is a set of principles that ensures data integrity in the life sciences marketplace, and it is a key component that is reviewed and enforced by the FDA (Food & Drug Administration). These principles are applied to a range of areas, particularly in relation to pharmaceutical research, manufacturing and testing. They play a key role in helping to ensure GMP compliance.
To help ensure that the CS Analytical Team meets these critical regulatory required expectations, a number of key quality credentials and certifications are maintained.
CS Analytical is an FDA registered analytical testing laboratory: FEI # 3017927136. Work performed for submission to the FDA is done in compliance with cGMP guidelines (21 CFR Parts 210 & 211) as applicable to a contract analytical testing laboratory. Key components of FDA registration include:
GOOD MANUFACTURING PRACTICES
CA Analytical has implemented current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs) as stated in the code of Federal Regulations.

The FDA registration along with these key certifications help to ensure that all work performed by the CS Analytical Teams meets or exceeds all regulatory requirements for the clients we serve.
