North Fork Nutra adheres to the following processes each and every day
to assure our customer's receives the quality products they deserve.
Vendor Audit - Prospective raw material suppliers are validated
and visited , inspected to ensure their conformance with Good
Manufacturing Practices (GMP), equitable labor policies, and environmental
Raw Materials Specifications - All incoming ingredients conform
to pharmaceutical standards of purity and effectiveness and meet
or exceed the strict Federal requirements of the Dietary Supplement
Health and Education Act (DSHEA).
Receipt of Incoming Raw Materials - No ingredient is received at
our manufacturing facility unless it is in properly labeled packaging
with tamper-evident seals. All incoming shipments must be accompanied
by full documentation, including independent Certificate of Laboratory
Analysis.Packing Slip identifying product name and North Fork Nutra Corresponding
Identification Screening of Raw Materials - Our Quality Control
inspectors employ advanced n-IR (near infrared) scanning probes,
which send a high-intensity beam of energy though the sealed containers.
As no two ingredients will absorb n-IR energy in the same way,
a unique fingerprint can be determined for each ingredient.
Quarantine and Release of Raw Materials - Once positively identified,
by comparing vendor Certificate of analysis, color, Lot # I.D.,
all incoming ingredients are segregated. Upon the release of
raw material, the ingredients are released for use in production.
Ingredient Testing Methods - We will be implementing the mandatory
FDA testing protocol per THE NEW GMP Guidelines, we look forward
to implementing our analytical laboratory to assure the identity
and potency of the ingredients in every North Fork Nutra supplement.
Pilot-Scale Blend Study - Pilot-scale is a process where we simply
scaled-down a full production . A pilot batch of ingredients is
blended to determine the ideal mixing time, product density which
will ensure a uniform product.
Pilot studies enable our Chemist and Bio-chemist , and technicians
to optimize each Master Formula. Once this has been established
a pilot blend of ingredients is then converted into the appropriate
dosage form (tablet, capsule, liquid, powder, etc.), so that strict
tolerances can be set in the upcoming Master Formula for the finished
Master Formula - Each and Every North Fork Nutra product and supplement
is produced from a precise pilot blend which is then converted
into our Master Batch Formula.
The Master Batch Formula is comprised of a 15 page report detailing,
this specifies each and every formula we produce.
The process, beginning with assigning the Lot # to the formula and
documenting each and every process along the way, This report
is unparalleled in the Vitamin manufacturing Industry,we do not
know of any other manufacturer that follows the specific protocol
and detailed process , we have developed at North Fork Nutra.
Full-Scale Production - All North Fork Nutra products are produced under
climate-controlled conditions in FDA-inspected facilities operating
under Federal Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs).
Weighing and Blending - Following the Master Formula, each ingredient
is weighed, tagged, and placed in a separate container from each
other ingredient. As each ingredient is weighed, both the operator
and supervisor must sign off on the master batch record. This
double signoff is repeated again when each ingredient is added
to the blender. As a final step, the tags from each ingredient
are tallied to eliminate any possibility of error.
Weight Variation Analysis - In-process, capsules are -weighed
every ten minutes by quality control technicians to certify that
all products are of uniform in weight for a consistent dosage.
If a capsule is off by more then the assigned target weight, manufacturing
ceases, and solution is determined, this is repeated EVERY 10
Capsule Completion - Once a lot number from the Master Batch
Record has been encapsulated , capsules are then polished and
spot checked. This process will identify partially filled capsules
and or damaged capsules, these capsules will be removed from the
production and dispensed, thus assuring our customers receive
a uniform a 100% filled capsule.
