Ion Labs Contract Manufacturing Process

Ion Labs is a cGMP Certified & FDA registered contract manufacturer of dietary supplements, OTCs, pet supplements, and skin care products.







At Ion Labs, the storage of your products and raw materials are of upmost importance. All raw materials and packaging components are received and stored in our climate controlled warehouse which has been GMP Certified by NSF, ensuring the quality of raw materials to finished products. Everything received is quarantined in a separate area and released by our Quality Control lab after all appropriate tests have been successfully completed. All finished products are tightly monitored throughout the release process before shipping.


Blending is the process of combining dry chemicals and ingredients to make a homogeneous mixture. This helps provide a high quality, uniform blend for your products.  At Ion Labs, every blended mix is verified for purity and consistency to ensure a uniform, quality blend with every production batch. With separate weigh and blending rooms, we maintain full control over the raw materials used in each batch. We have a wide range of blenders (dry powders) and mixing tank(s) (liquids and creams) sizes to ensure maximum flexibility and effectiveness for different order sizes.


Encapsulation is the process of adding ingredients into capsules in order to make the ingredient mixture into a quick dissolving solid form. At Ion Labs, we have seven fully automatic capsule machines; as well as a suite of liquid capsule, capsule-in-capsule and banding machines. These machines are not only designed to create the highest quality product but also efficiently saving our customers time and money on production. Our vegetable capsules are safe and natural. With substantial in-process checks, we can ensure high-quality capsule production within required weight targets.


Tableting is a punch-and-die procedure that compacts powdered or granular solids into a molded formulation in its final dosage form. At Ion Labs, we have seven high-speed tablet presses supporting a wide range of tablet shapes and sizes. Substantial in-process checks, including hardness, and dimension measurements, ensure adherence to strict quality standards for every batch. We offer swallowable, chewable, and dissolving tablets.


Tablets are commonly coated either to improve their appearance or to enhance functionality. In some cases, coatings can provide brand recognition with colored tablet coatings. With a large range of coating machine sizes from 48-inch to 80-inch coating pans, we can provide a wide range of clear and color coating options.


At Ion Labs, our form meets function design approach is the most efficient production method for superior private label or branded packaging solutions. Ion Labs also offers stock packaging for an even quicker turnaround. Our packaging lines provide the flexibility and speed to bottle a wide range of packaging configurations for capsules, tablets, powders, liquids, and creams. Our blister pack, stick pack, sachet, and unit dose tube filling capabilities provide additional packaging flexibility for our customers. Our qualified in-house packaging specialists work with our Quality and Regulatory team to ensure every finished product is of viable quality to drive sales and set our customers apart from competition.


Ion Labs quality control standards complement its core values of quality and transparency. All tablets, powders, liquids, capsules, and creams are not only inspected by the Quality Control team but also meet the standards imposed by the FDA and in accordance with cGMP compliance. The superior standards of manufacturing are leveraged by our experts. Finished or bulk, private label or pre-packaged, quality assurance is evident in every phase. A team of QC Inspectors closely monitor all processes on a continuous basis, ensuring tight adherence to all environmental and batch process controls. A highly skilled team of Document Control Specialists ensure tight control of all documentation, including SOP’s, batches and all required logs.

Our in-house experts take responsibility in ensuring products meet the customer’s requirements. Moreover, our state-of-the-art lab has all the capabilities for full raw material, in-process, finished product and stability testing requirements. We do virtually all of our testing in-house, including heavy metal, microbiological and strength/composition tests.
