ROCKY MOUNTAIN INSTRUMENTAL LABORATORIES STATE OF THE ART ANALYTICAL TESTING SERVICES SINCE 1980 970-266-8108
We provide contract chromatographic and mass spectrometric analysis (HPLC/MS) of pharmaceuticals (both traditional drugs and biotechnology products, such as proteins and peptides and oligonucleotides) and forensic toxicology, including fentanyl, THC, tryptamines, and other forensic testing and testimony. We now offer assays for certain antibiotics (cephalosporins and aminoglycosides) and the insecticides Fipronil and Ivermectin. We develop stability-indicating assays, including degradant identification, for the pharmaceutical industry. We also provide therapeutic drug monitoring for several less-common drugs, such as Taxol, Doxorubicin, Tacrolimus, rapamycin ( Sirolimus.), Temsirolimus, and Everolimus. Everything that we do is centered about and united by chemical testing. We offer HPLC/MS/MS, HPLC/PDA, GC/MS/MS, FT/IR, Dissolution, and Stability Testing. We are FDA registered and inspected, follow cGLP protocols, and are CLIA certified. We also are certified by the Colorado Department of Health to perform clinical and forensic toxicology testing. We also have a number of LCMSMS analyses for antibiotics, such as cephapirin, amoxicillin, and vancomycin. We provide both clinical and pre-clinical method development and performance.

They may be contacted at 970-266-8108 (voice) or 303-530-1169 (voice and FAX).
WHO WE ARE (THE MANAGEMENT) & THE LABORATORY HISTORY & CAPABILITIES, the new laboratory building. PHARMACEUTICAL ANALYSIS (SMALL MOLECULES, PEPTIDES, PROTEINS, & OLIGONUCLEOTIDES) FORENSIC TESTING (TOXICOLOGY AND DRUGS, POSTMORTEM ANALYSIS, FENTANYL, SEROLOGY, GSR (Gunshot residue), FIRE DEBRIS) Peptide synthesis and product development support is available through our extensive network of independent laboratories and consultants. CONTROLLED RELEASE FORMULATION Several of our clients have developed many successful controlled release oral dosage formulations on contract for major pharmaceutical companies. Controlled release products can have much superior activity and toxicity profiles. If this is of interest to you, please contact us so that we may assist you in finding the appropriate experts. If you would like to suggest other sites of scientific and/or forensic interest, call or write us.
