How do you make continuous improvement profitable?

Product Chemistry

EAG conducts product development studies in response to chemical and physical analysis requirements for product chemistry under Good Laboratory Practices (GLPs). We offer physical and chemical analyses required to characterize active ingredients, product components and their degradants, with ample capacity for storage stability studies and use of radiolabeled materials (14C and 3H) as needed.
