Medicinal products and starting materials



Laboratories of J. S. Hamilton Poland S.A. offer a broad range of products and raw materials analysis for domestic and foreign manufacturers and distributors of pharmaceuticals.

As a private and independent from industry we are leaders in this field on Polish market.

Our offer covers both routine analysis procedures for manufacturer’s quality control as well as analytical services for development, implementation and validation including transfer of analytical methods for our clients’ applications.

We offer analytical service of raw materials, excipients, active ingredients, packaging, intermediate and finished products. To satisfy our customers needs we continuously improve our service by implementation of new analytical methods in compliance with pharmacopoeia and ICH.

Pro- healthy role of dietary supplements has recently caused rapid expansion of their consumption worldwide. Consequently, in the result of growing demand for their testing we have developed specific analytical testing related to dietary supplements in all the stages of their development, validation and quality control studies.
