Food for special medical purposes (FSMP)

Food for special medical purposes (FSMP) is intended for use in patients in hospitals and for patients with special dietary treatment. Therefore, EU regulations, e.g. VO (EU) 609/2013, demand compendial testing of FSMP ingredients. SYNLAb Pharma has a long-term expertise not only for compendial testing of drugs under GMP conditions, but also for food analysis and bioanalytical testing. Together with SYNLAB´s clinical trial support we offer a broad variety of services to our customers from early drug development beyond market approval.  

SYNLAB Pharma holds certifications for GMP, GLP, GCP and GLCP to cover the whole range from batch release to clinical trial support.
