Element Launches Innovative Extractables and Leachables Service to Advance Life Sciences Research

Element Materials Technology has unveiled an exciting new global offering of Extractables and Leachables (E&L) services, combining the expertise of over 75 professionals across its labs in Ann Arbour and Bend in the US, Toronto in Canada, and Manchester in the UK. This enhanced offering of Testing, Inspection, and Certification (TIC) services is a result of Element’s recent acquisitions of Avomeen, Hall Analytical, and VR Analytical.

Regulatory agencies are becoming increasingly strict in their requirements for E&L studies before drugs and products are approved for market. These studies are crucial to ensuring the safety of drug products and that their efficacy is not compromised by the presence of extractable and leachable substances. It is essential that these substances are evaluated during the drug development process to guarantee the safety of patients and the effectiveness of the drug.

Element is proud to announce the promotion of Sarah Brophy to the role of Global Scientific Director for Extractables and Leachables in the Life Sciences Business Unit. In this newly created position, Sarah will be responsible for driving the successful delivery of Element’s strategy, operations and analytical services related to E&L.

This includes the management of Element’s E&L technical programs and global projects, as well as ensuring the achievement of the strategic and technical objectives of the Life Sciences Business Unit.

Element’s expertise in rigorous testing for Extractables and Leachables (E&L) on a wide range of products across the world’s regulatory authorities has established the company as an unparalleled global provider of medical product testing, storage, and delivery services.

Led by Global Scientific Director Sarah Brophy, the team is well-equipped to meet the ever-growing demands of the regulatory approval process and help companies bring drugs and products to market with speed and efficiency.
