chiral methods, post-column derivatisation
• IR direct measurement of liquids and solids via KBr-pill/window or by modern ATR-technology
• methods according to PhEur and USP, e.g.: full analyses of complete monographs, assays by GC/HPLC/
titration,... impurities, migration studies (testing of containers and labels), TLC, limit tests, microbiological
detection and enumeration tests, microbiological assays of antibiotics, microbiological challenge tests,
endotoxines, Nitrogen/Protein content by Kjeldahl, capillary viscosity (Ubbelohde), rotational viscosity
(Brookfield), disintegration time, dissolution studies, hardness of pills, drop point, freezing point, different
melting point methods, heavy metals (PhEur 2.4.8 /USP <231>), chromatographic profiles, color and turbidity,
spreadability, water by Karl-Fischer, loss on drying, residual solvents, composition of fatty acids, sieving
analyses, osmolality... and many more.
• ICP-SFMS high resolution elemental analyses performed at our partner lab ALS: elemental impurities acc.
PhEur 2.4.20, <USP 232> and ICH Q3D, ultra-trace elemental analyses in a wide range of matrices,
screenings covering up to 70 elements
On more than 850 m2 of laboratory area we have installed
• GC systems (Agilent 6890 and 7890B) with FID-detection, direct injection, cool-on-column injection,
headspace injection, capillary and packed column support
• HPLC systems (Merck-Hitachi) with DAD-, UV-VIS-, Fluorescence- and RI-detection

• Titration systems (Metrohm)
• TLC-systems (Linomat/Camag)
• climatic cabinets according to all ICH-requirements, including modern electronic logging and alarming
• a multitude of smaller analytical devices for nearly every purpose (e.g. disintegration and dissolution testing,
pill hardness, osmolality, melting point, optical rotation, refractive index, germ counting, …)
• via partner labs: ICP-SFMS (high resolution ICP-MS), LC-MS/MS, GC-MS, SPME-GC-MS, LC-Q-ToF-MS,
NMR, …
Simec AG is part of a strong network of specialists dedicated to analytical questions, e.g. isolation and structure
determination of impurities, solid state analysis, NMR, ultra-trace elemental analyses. Thanks to our partners, we
are able to provide our customers solutions even for very special or demanding problems. In addition, most of
them work according to GMP, too.
Simec AG has a wide range of national and international customers, including global market leading companies
as well as medium and small companies.
