Success Stories

Success Stories

Supplements and nutraceuticals are subject to fewer regulations than similar consumable products, so labs that specialize in Product Failure Analysis are especially important for quality control. Element testing has helped manufacturers create accurate packaging, identify the root cause of product failures and prevent harm to consumers.

Here are just a few important examples:

  • Confirmed the presence of arsenic, lead, and pesticide residue in dietary supplements
  • Identified active pharmaceutical ingredients in an “all natural” herbal product
  • Determined the gluten content of a beverage sample
  • Verified nutritional label content for a new line of products
  • Tested failed batches of a food product to determine the cause of contamination
