Quality Control Department


Main responsibilities:

  • Sampling ,testing of all materials
  • Stability studies
  • Monitoring of environmental conditions


All these operations are complied with standard operating procedures, validated methods and qualified equipment to guarantee the GLP requirements and national/international regulations.


  • The Quality control Departments contains seven laboratories
  • and one Sample Reception office


  1. Sample Reception office
  2. Raw Material lab
  3. Physical Chemistry Lab
  4. Microbiology Lab
  5. Bioassay Lab
  6. Molecular and Cellular Biology Lab
  7. Animal Testing Lab
  8. Chromatography Lab

The functions of the above sections include these items:


         Sample Reception:


  1. Received samples based on submission rules, Recorded and admission code will be installed and distribute to related laboratory.
  2. Provide certificate of analysis for each product and release it to quality assurance after final approval.
  3. Prepare stability timetable for each product.
  4. Making report of all tests done in quality control.
  5. Preparing SOPs determined the number of samples for each test.
  6. Admission of samples and provide professional services according to demand.
  7. Control samples are transferred to the warehouse for dry or cold products. So if necessary will be sent to the requesting unit.
