    Huge- but it was worth it- it was a 3 year side project on my end- probably the hardest part was developing written procedures for mfg. each product (different for each sku), analytical procedures, lab protocol, operating and cleaning machinery, intake of raws, testing protocol, packaging instructions, etc. We have some pretty decent hardware up in here now- an automatic encapsulator and a semi (75K/hr. capacity with both machines), multiple process equipment for mixing and granulating, a pretty decent packaging line with induction and heat-sealing, plus our own analytical lab with the capability to do ID, Assay, micro, pH, disintegration, bulk density, gravimetric analysis, etc. I will post pics of that on Monday when I get back in....

    No problem- if you guys want to know about the whole process- formulating, manufacturing, R&D, analytical testing, etc.- I can give you some pretty good insight...I am not a huge marketing guy- I dabble- but this is what separates our company from everyone else out there

    It wasn't cheap- but this is something that you do in stages- if you plan correctly, you can do it in an incremental fashion so the associated costs don't kill you and you can space them out. On the compliance side and analytical side, you can either pay someone to do it, or do it yourself- I am glad that I did it myself, because it gives you a much greater understanding of your own products and the process behind them......

    Looks good. I currently work in a QA lab so I'm curious as to how your lab will be set up and what kind of instruments you are using.

    Pictured is the FT-NIR and Incubator (for Micro Testing) plus a few other things

    Not Pictured- pH Tester, Bulk Density, Disintegration Tester, plus a couple other odds and ends.......other side of lab has a ton of boxes, etc. so it is a little messy- I will try to get more pics up later.....I have to test out a bunch of different things today, so everything is a little crazy atm

    The pics don't load? I'm on my phone though so that's probably why. I'll check back when I get off work. Sounds nice though.

    Very cool, you are probably one of the few that does your own manufacturing so seeing a companies facility is so rare. I would like to see where people like BSN and MuscleTech make their crap, I am sure it would be eye opening for many.

    I developed close to 50 viable molecules before the **** hit the fan on PH's- its a shame that they will never be synthe'd- I can't take credit for The One, it was actually developed by someone else in the industry who is a lot smarter than me

    Funny you mentioned "The One" I was cleaning out my car and found an old stash of it. more PH's would be nice but I'm happy we are on the good side of the law and still progressing as a profitable company.
