R&D
At British Biologicals, we work on the principle of Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP). We have adopted a well-structured design and development plan that covers:

  1. Identification of clinical needs
  2. Ingredient qualification
  3. Formulation development
  4. Stability and clinical studies

Following the above procedures helps us ensure both the quality as well as safety of new products introduced in the market.

We have a well-qualified research team, comprising PhD, MSc graduates and specialists in dietetics, nutrition, and food sciences. These experts are supported by more than a hundred practicing clinical dietitians. Our team conducts extensive testing and trials using the latest technology available in the nutrition field. This results in products having the best organoleptic properties, with proven synergy and efficacy.

Our research and development follows a multidimensional approach, supported by state-of-the-art analytical instruments such as HPLC, GC, AAC, UV-VIS, FTIR, NIR, Osmometer etc. Besides these, we also document and follow in-house stability studies.

Our R&D team derives cost advantages for our customers by driving these initiatives.

British Biologicals aims to develop disease specific nutrition formulas for conditions that can be cured directly by the intake of nutritional supplements, or can complement medical treatment to reduce hospitalization and aid quick recovery.

Our centralized R&D department helps develop new products for our British Nutrition and CritiCare departments. The former deals with fitness, wellness, and lifestyle products, whereas, the latter is involved with highly specific clinical nutritional formulas for patients in ICUs, including pre and post surgery nutritional needs, wound healing, burns, cardiac health, cancer, etc.

Our R&D team's vision and focus is embodied in the following quote:

"The goal of thoughtful nutrition is not just to ease disease symptoms; it is also to allow one to continue to use nutrition as a source of pleasure in one's life."

We strictly follow the food safety guidelines laid down by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) and the WHO's Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). Every product goes through an Annual Product Quality Review (APQR), following which, corrective and preventive actions are taken based on our findings from the AQPR report, to avoid further recurrences of any observed deviations.

These procedures highlight our emphasis on stringent quality checks at every level of the manufacturing process:

  1. Raw materials are thoroughly checked by a Quality Control Team at the entry point, and are they taken inside the stores only after the team's approval.
  2. The Quality Control Team samples the newly-arrived raw materials while they're still in the truck and draws conclusions quickly.
  3. If the raw material does not comply with our in-house criteria, it is rejected and sent back with a rejection note for the supplier, explaining the reasons for rejection.
  4. The plant is kept spotlessly clean and is fumigated regularly; strict hygiene practices are followed. The entry and exit points are clearly defined and controlled.

Cleanliness and sterility is maintained round the clock to avoid any chance of contamination and to maintain the quality of the manufactured products.

QUALITY ASSESSMENT & QUALITY CONTROL

We are always striving to improve our quality; so, our focus is constantly on quality control and assurance. We have a strong QA & QC team, dedicated to maintain and improve the quality of our products and set new benchmarks using the latest technologies.

We use the latest equipment in our plant, including sophisticated instruments such as HPLC, AAS, NIR, UV-VIS, Osmometer, stability chambers, and more. This formidable arsenal of tools is used at every stage of the manufacturing process, including analyzing raw material, in-process samples, and finished products.

Each production line in our plant is supervised by a dedicated QA executive, who vigilantly monitors all production activities as well as coordinates with the Quality Control Lab and the production team. Our QA team ensures that quality standards are continually improved upon by providing structured training to the personnel of Production and other related departments on good manufacturing practices and food safety practices. The results of these trainings are monitored carefully by studying their implementation. Periodic follow ups and retraining are provided whenever required.
