Ion Labs is committed to superior quality and safety. Starting with confident sourcing of the highest quality ingredients, to manufacturing under strict adherence to current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP), to the testing of our finished products, we have built quality into all of our processes from beginning to end, in order to offer the safest and most effective products on the market.
The raw materials used in our premium products are high-quality materials purchased from only reputable sources that have been fully vetted and approved by our diligent Quality Assurance department. Each vendor must meet our strict criteria for quality performance, Operations Management and robust Quality Systems. Because of the many variations encountered in many botanical materials used in dietary supplements, including seasonal, regional, and climate, Ion Labs has identified and approved multiple trustworthy vendors in different regions of the world. Because our experienced Purchasing department has established strong relationships with a sizeable network of reputable vendors, whenever feasible, we can quickly purchase large amounts of raw materials often at a discounted rate, which allows us to pass price savings on to our customers.
Ingredient Screening, In-Process and Finished Product Testing
In addition to the tireless efforts of our Purchasing and Quality Assurance departments to ensure we have sourced the best material available from the right vendors, we rely on our technologically advanced Quality Control (QC) Laboratory to verify through testing that each raw material received actually meets our high-quality standards and is suitable to put into production. Raw Materials are pre-screened to ensure they are correctly identified upon receipt, are of adequate strength, and are confirmed to be safe and free from contamination and impurities.
Once raw materials are released and used in production, our Quality Control Inspection team closely monitors every manufacturing step and performs in-process inspections at established Critical Control Points (CCPs) to ensure strict adherence to all environmental and batch process controls. The QC Inspection team is responsible for verifying product is conforming to established specifications throughout the manufacturing process, and releasing it to proceed to the next step once specifications are met and documented.
At the final packaging step of manufacturing the finished product is put on hold while samples of the finished product are pulled and tested in our QC Lab to confirm certain characteristics including potency, absorption, and purity, to ensure the product will do what it claims to do, is absorbed into the body in a reasonable time, and that there was no human, machine or environmental contamination introduced during the manufacturing and handling of the product throughout its lifecycle. Only after all required testing is completed with successful results, is the product released for shipping to the customer with a Certificate of Analysis issued from our QC Lab.
