Valisure Certificate of Analysis (CoA)

We greatly value transparency and believe you should know more about your meds than just that they came from an orange bottle and have a number printed on them. Our analytics are summarized in an easy-to-understand certificate of analysis which is unique to every batch of every product we sell. Different products can have different chemical analysis performed. Click this button to learn more.

Lot Number

Large batches of medication are made and packaged for sale with unique lot numbers. At Valisure, medication samples from every lot are tested to help ensure safety, quality and consistency for our customers.

Dosage

Valisure determines the dose of active ingredient in samples from batches of medication using comparison to pure reference standards.

Not every drug is analyzed for dosage at this time. Find out more here.

Spectral Match

To help ensure that medications contain the proper active ingredient, Valisure uses spectroscopic techniques to match medication samples to pure reference standards.

Other Ingredients

A library of pure ingredients, including those shown here, allows Valisure to identify and report other ingredients in medication samples.

Carcinogen Detection

Discovery of potentially dangerous impurities can prompt medication recalls. Valisure conducts precision testing to help ensure the medications we offer do not have such impurities above acceptable limits.

Nitrosamines

Nitrosamine impurities including NDMA, NDEA, NDIPA, and NEIPA are probable human carcinogens and some have been responsible for recent medication recalls.

Toxic Elements

Toxic elements are those in regulatory class 1 based on their toxicity.

Other Elements

Valisure monitors other elements that have lower toxicity compared to Class 1 elements but are, nonetheless, of concern in the pharmaceutical industry.

Disintegration

Whether produced for immediate, delayed or extended-released, do your medications release at the right time? Valisure determines when medication samples break down in simulated gastrointestinal conditions.

Drug Release

Valisure uses fluids that mimic gastrointestinal conditions to determine how well medication samples release active ingredients over time.

Approved By

Valisure's rigorous quality management system and processes for chemical analysis are accredited under International Organization for Standardization (ISO) regulation 17025 standards which requires all tests to be approved by a quality manager.

What We Do (and Don't) Test

All pharmacies visually inspect medications to make sure they look OK from the outside. Valisure is the only pharmacy that checks your medications on the inside – we take samples from each batch of meds that our pharmacy dispenses and run a variety of chemical tests. While every test is not run on every medication, we are committed to apply our testing to the areas of greatest concern and are constantly expanding our capabilities. More specific details on testing is below.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Read the instructions and any medication guide that came with your medicine, use the medicine as directed, and check with your health care provider if you have any questions about your medication and before changing your treatment in any way. The chart above contains results from an analytic chemistry analysis performed on a subset of pills from the same batch or lot as the pills provided to you. The subset was designed to be representative of the entire batch or lot. The specific pills you received were not analyzed and an analysis of your pills could yield different results. These results: (1) are not medical advice, (2) are not intended to be a statement, claim or indication of efficacy or suitability of the pills provided to you, (3) do not describe any particular characteristic (or lack of characteristic) beyond the specific metrics listed for the subset tested, and (4) make no claim or indication of the relative efficacy and/or suitability of your pills or the subset as compared with other subsets, batches, lots, brands, formulations, or treatments. VALISURE LLC DOES NOT MAKE, AND SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS, ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES WITH REGARD TO THESE RESULTS AS THEY RELATE TO THE PILLS PROVIDED TO YOU, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, WARRANTY OF PERFORMANCE, OR WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
