Analytical Quality Control
Here at Venogen we are focused on providing our customers with confidence and assurance that our products are of the utmost quality. We achieve this by 3rd testing each new production batch against established specifications. Additionally, it is important to maintain transparency with our customs, therefore, we disclose all 3rd party test results in our searchable QC database.
What is a COA?
A Certificate of Analysis document consists of a number of chemical tests used for certifying the identity and purity of a chemical. A COA document provides the chemical its authenticity.
What is a MSDS sheet?
A Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) contains important information concerning a material’s safe working procedures, potential health effects of exposure to the chemical, and proper material handling.
Additionally the document contains hazard evaluations on the use, storage, handling of the material, what to expect if the recommendations are not followed, and what to do if accidents occurs.
Why are these documents important?
Without these two important documents, it would be impossible to know essential data such as purity, the risks of the material and how it should be handled safely.
How does this pertain to the audit process?
Our company independently audits each product batch produced within our partnering factory within China. Furthermore, we conduct frequent on-site auditing of all production facilities four times a year.
After the production phase is complete we conduct our independent sample analysis. If the chemical passes the initial test, we ship the chemical to our packaging facilities under preliminary quarantine.
Within our packaging facility, we conduct another test of the received chemical. If the second test is in line with our primary test, we approve the chemical for packaging.
With base materials being engineered in one location and being packaged in another location, from stage to stage of the product chain, it is important to have all production material elucidated.
