Over the years, Watson has gathered an extensive know-how not only in the synthesis of molecules, but also in the analysis of these compounds. The implementation of suitable analytical methods, an experienced, well-trained staff, and state-of-the-art equipment are important prerequisites for Watson to maintain the superior quality of its products and to meet the expectations of even the most demanding customer. Our high analytical standards apply to all of our products.

We constantly develop and validate new analytical methods, aiming at setting industrial standards in the analysis of compounds. Currently, our products are analyzed by the following methods on a routine basis:

Chromatographic Techniques

High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC)
High Performance Liquid Chromatography coupled with Mass Spectroscopy (HPLC-MS)
Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC)
Gas Chromatography (GC)


Spectroscopic Methods

Infrared Spectroscopy (IR)
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (1H & 13C NMR)


Other Techniques

Elemental Analysis (CHN)
