Arkworld only works with the most reliable raw material suppliers approved through a vendor audit process. Each delivery of ingredients is quarantined until the material is laboratory tested to verify its identification quality level and safety. Additional tests are performed to determine various physical characteristics to insure proper product manufacturing standards can be achieved. A complete microbial laboratory is equipped for testing bacterial levels and the presence of pathogens. Strict US Pharmacopoeia methodology is used and good lab practices are followed.
Arkworld manufacturers are committed to the highest quality standards and therefore are committed to being involved in quality processing related associations and certification groups.
Arkworld’s manufacturing is composed of a team of people with decades of knowledge in the dietary supplement and pharmaceutical industries. Our Medical and Scientific Advisory Board headed up by Chief Executive Scientist Dr. Jeff Golini PhD is dedicated to producing the best quality products possible and leads the way in new scientific breakthroughs, discoveries and pioneering inventions. No other company comes close to the level of expertise and innovation!
Because poor manufacturing can destroy great science, Arkworld chose a manufacturing facility that voluntarily meets cGMP for pharmaceutical-grade products...much higher than what the law requires, and far-surpassing the standards followed by most nutritional product manufacturers. To adhere to these exacting standards, Arkworld’s manufacturer tests the raw ingredients, tests the product during manufacturing and tests everything once again before it goes out the door. Our manufacturer’s quality assurance team meticulously tracks every detail, from the sophisticated testing and evaluation of raw materials, to what happens to the products during shipping and storage.
Research and discovery are the driving forces behind great ideas and great products. Staying on the cutting edge of nutrition involves a tremendous amount of foresight. Our scientific support team has that foresight as they comprise a select group with extensive experience not only in the pharmaceutical industry, but also as natural product chemists, patent holders, and collaborating researchers with major Universities and government agencies.
One of the most important steps in developing great nutritional formulas is starting with excellent raw materials.
Our manufacturing facility was designed by a management team with decades of experience in developing and operating sophisticated pharmaceutical grade facilities for the manufacturing of dietary supplements. They intimately understand the physical and chemical properties of the natural components used in this type of manufacturing.
Arkworld products contain only the most reliable and proven ingredients. At our manufacturer, each delivery of ingredients is quarantined until the material is laboratory tested to verify its identification, quality level and safety. Additional tests are performed to determine particle size, density and moisture content. A complete microbial laboratory is equipped for testing bacterial levels and the presence of pathogens. Once the formula and specifications are finalized, the raw materials are ordered based on set scientific standards.
With the dietary supplement industry becoming more sophisticated and moving away from the “Home Remedy” type of products, a scientific approach to product design, formulation, and standardization is required to effectively design new products for this maturing industry. Identifying active ingredients, marker compounds, and determining the overall effectiveness of single and combination formulas is an important function performed by the scientific team at our manufacturer. The effectiveness of blending and processing ingredients during manufacturing has a strong correlation to the physical characteristics of the powders and affects the consistency and quality of the finished product.
In today’s safety-conscious environment, no issue receives greater attention from consumers, regulatory bodies and the media than the quality of finished products. With this in mind, we chose a manufacturer that follows Drug-level cGMP protocols, and had extensive in-house laboratories that could perform physical, microbial and analytical testing of ingredients, work-in-process, and finished goods.
This combined experience enables the Arkworld manufacturer to successfully meet the demands and challenges in the Dietary Supplement market and regulatory environment. This experience extends to all phases of the organisation, including manufacturing, quality assurance, purchasing, finance, product development, laboratory testing and analysis, pharmaceutical quality research, customer service, sales and marketing.
Arkworld’s Medical and Scientific Support Team consists of Four PhDs under the leadership and guidance of Chief Executive Scientist Dr. Jeff Golini PhD; all with broad pharmaceutical industry and phytomedicinal expertise and experience. There is also an incredible secondary scientific team associated with the manufacturing and production of each product that also work as part of the Scientific Advisory Board.
As the Dietary Supplement industry continues to rapidly grow, the best insurance against consumer-related issues is the effective analysis of ingredients for safety and efficacy. Our manufacturer follows cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practices) modeled after the pharmaceutical industry and well above standards set forth for the Dietary Supplement industry. The protocols and standards required for OTC Drug and Pharmaceutical products are used by our manufacturer.
For microbial testing our media preparations are prepared in-house to insure quality control with complete lot traceability. The microbial laboratory is equipped for testing bacterial levels and the presence of pathogens. Our experienced laboratory testing team has worked exclusively in the natural products, pharmaceutical and for government agencies.
Our manufacturer’s physical testing laboratory conducts a number of tests on raw materials and finished goods:
At our manufacturers, increased emphasis is placed on scientific verification of product quality and functionality. The Total Quality Management (TQM) program at our manufacturer strictly adheres to FDA Drug Standards of current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP), and includes the following:
