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.
What We Do (and Don't) Test
Valisure currently tests three of the most important properties of any medication: the active ingredient, the major inactive ingredients and roughly how they will all dissolve in your body. Other pharmacies are supposed to visually check that a medication looks OK from the outside; Valisure chemically tests samples from each batch of medication on the inside for these critical properties.
There are other properties that Valisure doesn’t yet test for but plans to in the future. Also, there are some properties that Valisure, or any high throughput lab, can’t reasonably test for. The table below helps identify these three categories of tests:
*Unknown or Rare Impurities: There are literally millions of different chemicals that could possibly be present as impurities in a medication. Analytical testing largely works by looking at chemicals (including impurities) you expect could be present. Trying to find rare or unknown chemicals can take a forensic lab months or years to do. This kind of testing is not something Valisure's high throughput lab can reasonably do.
**Efficacy and Side Effects: Valisure doesn’t test how a drug works, just that it is the right medication, it has the right dosage and that it should release as intended. The efficacy and side effects of a drug are tested during clinical trials.
