Shelf life Testing
Using first class scientific techniques to determine the long-term chemical stability of e-liquids using accelerated time testing
MHRA requires chemical stability or shelf life testing. The UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) have published guidelines for manufacturers of electronic cigarette and vape e-liquids requiring them to demonstrate the chemical stability of their products – also known as product shelf life.
One item that can greatly affect the chemical stability or shelf life of a product is the flavour compounds. Because of this and an ever increasing range of new flavour components, it is becoming more important to test for product stability.
From our ISO accredited laboratory, ADACT offers a full chemical stability testing service, which uses high-end accelerated testing cabinets and allow us to preview up to two years of product degradation in just six months.
For the most accurate result, we ask for randomly picked samples from the start, middle and end of a single production batch. During the test a product will be kept in its original packaging for distribution and sale at 20°C in an incubator and at 35°C with added humidity.
Our state of the art laboratory has secure stability storage allowing us to do both ambient and accelerated testing and confirm your product’s shelf life in the shorting possible time.
Our experienced team provides the confidence that your samples are being analysed by the most appropriate methods and qualified team in the industry.
We care about our customers and ensuring they have access to affordable compliance services to enable their businesses to grow.
Compliance strengthens brands – consumers naturally have a higher level of confidence in tested, approved products. Compliant products have a leading edge in the market place, when compared to non-tested brands and products.
