Due to exponential increases in demand for our products, Quicksilver Scientific is expanding! Dr. Shade has met customer need in a big way, by opening a new 7,200 square-foot manufacturing facility. The finishing touches are being completed on build-out and equipment installation, and we will be fully operational. We are currently taking orders for all of our products (and for custom manufacturing and private label supplements, as well) so get yours into the pipeline! This image of Dr. Shade from a few months ago shows him inspecting the new regulation flooring and wall paint. Check back soon, and we'll reveal the fully completed project.
Quicksilver Scientific manufactures its dietary supplements with strict Quality Controls, following cGMP regulations.
From the FDA’s website:
"What are cGMPs?
cGMP refers to the Current Good Manufacturing Practice regulations enforced by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). cGMPs provide for systems that assure proper design, monitoring, and control of manufacturing processes and facilities. Adherence to the cGMP regulations assures the identity, strength, quality, and purity of drug products by requiring that manufacturers of medications adequately control manufacturing operations. This includes establishing strong quality management systems, obtaining appropriate quality raw materials, establishing robust operating procedures, detecting and investigating product quality deviations, and maintaining reliable testing laboratories. This formal system of controls at a pharmaceutical company, if adequately put into practice, helps to prevent instances of contamination, mix-ups, deviations, failures, and errors. This assures that drug products meet their quality standards.
The cGMP requirements were established to be flexible in order to allow each manufacturer to decide individually how to best implement the necessary controls by using scientifically sound design, processing methods, and testing procedures. The flexibility in these regulations allows companies to use modern technologies and innovative approaches to achieve higher quality through continual improvement. Accordingly, the "c" in cGMP stands for "current," requiring companies to use technologies and systems that are up-to-date in order to comply with the regulations. Systems and equipment that may have been "top-of-the-line" to prevent contamination, mix-ups, and errors 10 or 20 years ago may be less than adequate by today's standards."
