Shelf life studies play a critical role in the development of new products. They are not only important for meeting the regulatory requirements of labelling the product with an expiry date, best before date, et cetera but play a much larger role in the product quality life-cycle.
Properly conducted shelf life studies ensure that the product quality will be maintained throughout the product life-cycle and greatly reduces the chances of customer complaints related to quality.
Thus shelf life studies help establish the product as a quality product in the market and greatly strengthen the products brand value.
We at Arbro have been conducting shelf life studies for various industries including
1. Pharmaceutical products
