Tampa Bay Analytical Research believes in providing services that are tailored to each customer's specific needs. You may find that we ask more questions than some other labs before accepting a project. This is to ensure that the work done is appropriate to your needs, and that we have the capability to execute the work to your satisfaction with no false expectations. You will always be able to discuss technical questions with the technical people directly involved with your project.
Our laboratory services include analytical method development, method validation and contract analysis. We can also help with GMP and analytical chemistry training, assist in writing validation protocols, perform data analysis and document review, and provide expert testimony services to legal professionals, management consultants, and the dietary supplement community in general.
To learn more about our services, please refer to the tabs on the left or call us at 727.540.0900.
TBAR is a leader in analytical method development in the area of botanicals and dietary supplements. We strive to develop methods that are both reliable and practical, and can be transferred to other laboratories if necessary with minimal trouble. Many of the analytical methods developed by Dr. Roman have been adopted by AOAC, USP, INA and other analytical laboratories. Basic validation work will accompany any development project to provide confidence in the reliability of the results.
Our capabilities include HPLC with UV, PDA, fluorescence and evaporative light scattering detection, as well as GC-FID. In addition, through our partnerships with other laboratories, we can develop methods for HPLC or GC with MS and MS/MS detection.
Nobody has more experience in method validation for dietary supplements than TBAR. Dr. Roman is author and instructor of several validation training courses, and is author or co-author on many published validation manuscripts, including ephedrine alkaloids (which is now the AOAC official method of analysis), biogenic amines in Citrus aurantium, chondroitin sulfate, coenzyme Q10, and others.
TBAR follows AOAC guidelines for single laboratory validations, which are the most rigorous and statistically based validation protocols of any organization.
If you would like to take your method to the next level of validation, Dr. Roman also has extensive experience designing and directing multi-laboratory collaborative studies, and is author and instructor for the AOAC training course on design and management of collaborative studies.
The current GMPs place the onus of responsibility for supporting label claims on the manufacturer. We will ensure that you have the proper documentation for an audit, including the actual method of analysis (not just a journal reference) and raw data including chromatograms and copies of notebook pages if requested.
We can test your samples in accordance with AOAC Official Methods of Analysis, USP monographs, or other official monographs if so desired.
