“The Three Most Important Parts of 21CFR Part 111 Are Testing, Testing and Testing.”
At Wellington Foods, we understand that testing materials is a primary step in controlling our process. Complete control of our process is a high standard, and among other things it requires that we have written specification and controls for the materials that we use in our operation. Only through appropriate testing can we verify that the materials we use meet our standards for identity, purity, potency and composition.
We have spent a great deal of time and resources developing our on-site Quality Control Laboratory, which includes over 2,000 square feet of bench-top laboratory space and offices. Our laboratory staff and testing equipment give us the ability to perform many of the required material tests on-site, which is a big advantage in terms of time, cost and inventory control.
Our Quality Control Laboratory is a very busy place, with our staff performing daily tests on incoming raw materials, in-process product and finished products. We continue to expand our testing capability with equipment and resources that allow us to stay current with the needs of our customers. We also use outside, independent laboratories when necessary for complicated assays, microbiology and other specialized testing.
