Identifying the known and the unknown
What are determination studies?
Determination studies is a very broad heading for a test that identifies an unknown physical characteristic or constituent content of a sample. At Honeyman we have a wealth of experience of taking on bespoke client projects and adding that knowledge to our portfolio.
Why do we do them?
Whether it be for a regulatory/pharmacopoeial requirement or a product specific test, there is often the requirement for niche analysis for niche products.
How do we assure compliance?
Determination studies are composed of a whole complement of testing performed upon client request, some examples of this can be found below:
- Melting point
- Refractive index
- Weight per millimetre, density, relative density and apparent density
- Ash/Sulphated Ash
- Loss on drying
- Water content
