Planetary Biosciences uses extremely strict quality control methods.
Consistency and Purity
Planetary Biosciences only uses standardized ingredients. This means that each ingredient is assayed against a key component so that from batch to batch the product is the same in activity every time. Only the best standardization practices available in the market are used, because this means quality and also cuts down on bulk. If a raw material had varying amounts of the desired ingredient then the volume required would constantly vary. To guard against this and to ensure consistent potency and purity, Planetary Biosciences only uses suppliers that are trusted.
Each lot of ingredients is assayed twice by HPLC (High-Performance Liquid Chromatography) for purity. HPLC is a common technique used in pharmaceutical development. It is a dependable way to obtain and ensure product purity and is used to produce extremely high quality products.
Each batch also receives microbiology testing as well as testing for contaminants.
The products are made in an FDA licensed and inspected facility under GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices). Robotics designed for pill manufacturing and bottling are used according to FDA regulations. This means clean-room conditions.
Each bottle of Indrepta has an inner and outer seal. The bottles are packed into cases and loaded onto pallets at the manufacturing facility and shipped to a distributor who keeps the inventory in a climate controlled environment.
TauriNAC is made similarly, except it is packaged into individually sealed foil packets to ensure freshness.
