HPHC Testing

Regardless of whether your products are e-cigarettes (ENDS), e-liquids, e-vapor devices (ENDS), cigarettes, oral tobacco products, gels or tobacco free oral nicotine products, Labstat offers validated methods for every chemical on the FDA’s HPHC list (Harmful and Potentially Harmful Constituents). Our validation process is designed to meet regulatory standards to ensure that submitted data is reliable and defensible.
