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.
Valisure determines the dose of active ingredient in samples from every batch of medication using comparison to pure reference standards.Find out more here
Discovery of dangerous impurities can prompt medication recall. Valisure conducts additional testing to help ensure the medications we offer do not have such impurities above our detection limits, which are below those established by the FDA for acceptable daily intake or exposure.
Valisure's rigorous quality management system and processes for chemical analysis are accredited under International Standards Organization (ISO 17025) regulation standards which requires all tests to be approved by a quality manager.Contact us
What We Do (and Don't) Test
Valisure currently tests many of the most important properties of any medication: the active ingredient; the major inactive ingredients; roughly how they dissolve in your body; and testing for the presence of the known contaminants NDEA, NDMA and DMF. 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.
*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.
