Storage Stability Studies

Storage Stability Studies determine the shelf life of products. This information is a necessity for registration and the process of evaluation covers both the product and the packaging of that product. 

Oxford Analytical is a GLP compliant laboratory with broad experience in performing stability studies in accordance with all current guidelines covering plant protection products and Biocides, as outlined in , Regulation (EC) No. 1107/2009 of the EU parliament and council on placing plant protection products on the market, and the EU BPR No 528/2012.  Further afield we can also design storage stability studies to meet OPPTS requirements.

Storage Stability Challenges

You may face challenges with storage stability related to determining shelf life, maintaining product quality, complying with regulations, identifying degradation mechanisms, customising testing protocols, interpreting data, managing costs, ensuring rapid testing, and dealing with limited sample sizes. Oxford Analytical provide tailored stability testing services, regulatory expertise, data interpretation support, and cost-effective solutions to address these customer pain points effectively.

Product Quality Assurance: Storage stability testing helps ensure that products maintain their quality and effectiveness over time, reducing the risk of quality degradation and customer dissatisfaction.

Regulatory Compliance: By conducting stability studies in accordance with industry-specific regulations and guidelines, customers can demonstrate compliance with regulatory requirements, ensuring their products meet legal and safety standards.

Cost Savings: Identifying and addressing stability issues early in product development can prevent costly recalls or reformulations, ultimately saving customers money and resources while improving overall product performance and market success.

Our services include:

New regulations around Biocides came into place in 2012 . We have since therefore worked with industry to support registration needs conducting 5 batch analysis, routine testing, storage stability, physical testing and more on a wide range of Biocides.

Biostimulants are a wonderful new way to protect our plants and wildlife by using nature to protect itself. They are natural substances harnessed for their characteristics. After that they are developed into products that can be applied to seeds, plants and soils in order to stimulate natural growth. 

We have worked with consultants and direct customers for many years supporting their Agrochemical registration testing requirements under global regulations. Find out more here

We can design storage stability studies with or without GLP accreditation under the Biocides, Plant Protection, or ICH guidelines to support registration around the world. Find out more here

Need data for registration or a safety data sheet?

From explosive properties through to partition co-efficient, we cover a wider range of physical tests and can also develop our own in-house methods for novel experiments.

We use a range of methods from CIPAC, ASTM, ISO, OPPTS, OECD and more to meet global regulatory requirements. Find out more here

We can cover elemental to extremely low levels. For instance if you just need to identify, quantify, or fully validate a method. Our ICP systems cover a wide range of elements often working on 10+ elements at the same time. 

We regularly work on Silver, Lead, Arsenic, Chromium, Cadmium, Mercury, Copper, Boron and Sodium to name a few. Our list of capabilities stretches much longer! Find out more here

We can carry out impurity profiling, product screening, method validation and 5 batch analysis or Technical Equivalence studies to meet your registration needs. Our team develop tailored methods for your products and can also support with structural identification requirements.

We have many years of experience with successful studies over many compounds from Citric Acid to Pyrethrins covering elemental impurities, isomers, and additives of all types. 

Whether your product is a TC, or TK we can help. Find out more here

We have been developing tailored methods at affordable prices for many years. Our chemists have developed thousands of methods over the years from simple single actives to complex products covering a wide range of levels and product types. 

We can also validate already developed methods or support you through your own method development journey via consultation.

Our validation expertise covers global requirements including SANCO/3030/99, SANTE/2020/12830 and ICH Q2, OPPTS 830.1800 and APVMA among others. Find out more here

The fertiliser market is well established but under scrutiny with the introduction of new regulations demanding more rigorous testing and reducing acceptable levels of elements. 

We are one of few labs that can offer the full suite of Fertiliser testing including Inorganic Arsenic, and Chromium VI. Find out more here

Need routine quality checks, one offs or concerned about contamination?

New regulations to meet? We often take on complex novel projects and it is what we are known for! Our chemists enjoy doing something different! Find out more here
