Cigarette and e-Cigarette Testing Information

Reliable technologies to help you meet regulatory guidelines

Cigarettes and e-cigarettes both contain harmful chemicals, additives and toxins that may cause serious health issues like cancer and lung disease. Cigarettes contains numerous constituents like nicotine, ammonia, metals, PAHs, nitrosamines, ethylene glycol, formaldehyde, pesticides and others. So, testing of these ingredients is critical for safety reasons.  Electronic cigarettes, or e-cigarettes were promoted as a safer alternative to smoking tobacco, however, new health concerns about e-cigarettes make it clear that these products need to be tested and regulated.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other regulatory agencies around the world regulate cigarettes and other tobacco products to mitigate the hazardous effects they can have on human health. These regulations make identification and quantification of hazardous compounds in cigarettes and cigarette smoke critical to tobacco suppliers. Our instruments help in the testing of these ingredients.
