Quality control (QC) in the pharmaceutical industry differs from QC in other industries, in which mainly a final product is simply checked for compliance with norms set by the manufacturer.
British Dragon quality control starts long before the actual manufacturing of products ever begins, with regular maintenance and control of all the machinery and hardware – filters, pumps, sterilizers, air cleaners, etc. – involved in the manufacturing process.
Once raw materials arrive at the British Dragon laboratory, they are double-tested to verify purity, consistency, authenticity, stability, and other parameters. Only by knowing the exact parameters of the raw material can the exact proportions of active substances in the final products be ensured to have virtually zero deviations. This enables British Dragon to produce products with the highest tolerances in the industry.
During the actual manufacturing British Dragon products, each step of the process is checked for compliance to the company’s production standards.
Once the products are manufactured, each batch is submitted to rigorous laboratory testing to be certain each product is in exact accordance with its specifications. Even after the products pass the tests, they are stored for an additional two weeks during which time samples of the batch are tested for consistency, stability, purity, sterility, etc. Only after all tests are successfully completed are products then shipped for distribution.
Quality control does not stop there, though. As most products have a shelf life of up to three years, British Dragon must ascertain that the products are consistent throughout the shelf life of the product until expiration. For that reason, samples of each batch of every product are retained in the factory and tested at regular intervals to verify the products’ integrity. Should any problem arise, it can be easily identified and the affected batch of products can be removed from the sales channel.
The above steps ensure that British Dragon products are of the best possible quality available on the market and guarantees that the customers using authentic British Dragon product will always receive exactly what they purchased.
