Lab comments:
Tested three times. Metformin indicated by mass spectra degradation peaks. A standard was analyzed by GCMS with BSTFA derivitization, two peaks were produced. The sample was analyzed the same way, but only one of two peaks were detected in the sample: NOT both as would be expected.

This could be explained by some component in the tablet interfering with our procedure using BSTFA derivitization consumption. We think metformin might be present, but cannot positively confirm it in this case.
(Dec 27 2017) Re-analysis with certified metformin standard complete. Sample appears to be similar to metformin but its GC and MS spectra do not precisely match the certified standard using our methodology. It's possible that they don't match because we are matching a pure lab standard against the contents of a tablet.

(Dec 12 2017) Re-analysis of this tablet is in progress and should be completed this week. Please check back.

(Dec 4 2017) Check back after Dec 12 for an update to this sample, it will be re-analyzed by the lab to confirm the initial identification of Metformin, after they receive a certified standard for Metformin.
