Shrideep Labs: Delivers Accurate & Traceable Raw Data within Promised Timelines

Dinesh V. Chandole, Managing Director

Regardless of the current influx in the pharmaceutical testing companies in India, many small-scale companies fumble due to lack of sophisticated machinery and regulatory commitment, while large-scale companies lack sufficient time and manpower for on-going stability testing and validation sample analysis. Further, due to multiple communication issues, these companies miss-out on meeting the specified delivery timelines and taste huge loss in their production rates. Anticipating these prevalent problems in the industry, Shrideep Labs (SDL) Pvt. Ltd., a NABL accredited & an ISO 2015 certified pharma testing laboratory in India undertakes samples from only a specific set of companies, analyzes & tests them and provides accurate raw data within the promised timelines. The firm in fact owns a cluster of repeated customers due to its unparalleled quality and a maximum of five day delivery across its pharma testing services. Dinesh V. Chandole, Director, SDL, enunciates, “We are not in competition with any other pharma testing lab because we act according to our commitment with customers and also our own business ethics”.

SDL primarily deals with analysis of stability samples & pharmaceutical raw materials and finished products wherein the customers first send them the samples to be tested along with its specifications. Post-analysis through the leverage of High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Gas Chromatography (GC), Dissolution, UV Spectrophotometry and other Wet Chemistry lab equipment, the firm generates complete raw data (70-80 pages), along with a certificate of analysis for the customers.
