Method transfers, as a regulatory requirement, ensures a laboratory demonstrates its capability and competency to perform a method correctly. The purpose of method transfers is to avoid release of product that does not meet specification and likewise, avoid rejection of compliant product.

Whether you are looking for a new laboratory for QC release testing, or you need support on method development and validation, our team of analytical development scientists have an integrated approach for both transfers in and out of our laboratory.

Test Method Transfer Checklist

Method Development

For those who are looking for method development and validation support, our team of analytical development scientists can support your requirements, and we effectively transfer methods back to your in-house laboratory or manufacturer.


For those who are looking to use our facility as their quality control release testing site, we will work with your laboratory to ensure a successful transfer of methods. Where challenges are encountered and investigations are required, our analytical team has the experience and expertise to troubleshoot.

How We Deliver


Develop Protocol

We develop a protocol that is approved by both parties.


Receive Samples

Send us samples for which we conduct testing at the same time as their laboratory on the same batch of product.


Compare Results

We compare results with the other laboratory and ensure acceptance criteria is met.


Investigate Anomalies

We conduct investigations and provide scientific consulting where results do not meet acceptance criteria.


Deliver Report

The outcome of the transfer is formalised in a report for your product records.



When test results fall outside specification limits, it's time to investigate. Read our blog for tips on how to conduct a GMP compliant OOS/OOT investigation.
