A range of certificates are available from SDS to ensure that all requirements are met.

  • Special Quality Control (SQC)/GLP Diets: Every batch of SQC diet is analysed for a whole suite of parameters to ensure they are suitable for GLP studies.  Analysis results are compared to SDS guidelines which we have for each SQC product. Certificates are sent out prior to dispatch of the diet.
  • Quality Control (QC)/Standard Diets: All of our standard products are analysed for moisture, oil, protein, fibre, ash, microbiology and vitamin content.
  • Client Specific Certification: SDS can arrange for chosen parameters to be analysis of any product. This is often requested for our custom made diets.

SQC diets from SDS are suitable for investigations regulated by the standards set in Good Laboratory Practice (GLP). Every batch of SQC diet comes with a Certificate of Analysis.
