Acutus Laboratories Services
In our fully equipped analytical laboratories, our dedicated team of chemists and toxicologists provide full compositional breakdown on all e-liquids and emissions, as well as performing nicotine dosage testing, thermal degradation profiling and other important tests and assessments.
Thorough analysis is essential in ensuring that both the quality and safety of all e-liquid products meets the necessary legal standards. Acutus provides a series of stringent tests that are specifically designed to screen and identify the components of your e-liquid, recording the exact percentages of nicotine, propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin, as well as detecting the presence of any undesirable compounds, such as diacetyl, acetylpropinoyl, acetoin and diethylene glycol.
Our tests also detect the presence of any tobacco-specific nicotine nitrosamines (TSNAs). Identification and careful removal of these harmful carcinogens ensures that products are totally safe before being sent to market.
Vapour Emission Testing
As well as TPD-specific analysis, Acutus provides standard batch testing for both liquids and vapours. All the tests that we apply to e-liquids are also applied to vapour emissions, which must be controlled for nicotine concentration as well as the presence of potentially harmful components, such as diacetyl, acetoin and acetyl propionyl.
Vapour emission testing also checks for the existence of other undesirable ingredients such as aldehyde compounds. These include formaldehyde, acetaldehyde and acrolein, which can be detected even in extremely low quantities. We also test for heavy metals and any tobacco-specific nicotine nitrosamines (TSNAs).
This series of tests is absolutely essential if we are to discover and eliminate any compounds in the vapour emissions that are of even the slightest toxicological concern, ensuring in the process that all of our products are 100% safe.
CBD Testing And Analysis
Accurate preparation of nicotine containing e-liquids cannot be guaranteed 100% of the time without the use of batch testing to highlight potential manufacturing errors. Batch testing will provide a quality guarantee to your customer that the product they have purchased has been manufactured accurately. Furthermore, the British Standards Institute (BSI) recommends the use of High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) or Gas Chromatography analytical equipment to test for nicotine concentrations in e-liquid products.
