Scientific Rigor for Global Clients
From performing extraction and leachable protocols to toxicological risk assessments and contamination analysis, our Hong Kong lab team is here to assist you with your most complex challenges. We offer solutions for complex engineering and regulatory issues through due diligence studies, document review, designing experiments, and electrical, mechanical, and chemical analysis.
Materials Expertise That Drives Product Performance
Achieving optimal product performance and durability requires specialized knowledge about materials. Knowing the composition and properties of component materials can help prevent corrosion issues in consumer electronics, anticipate biocompatibility issues in medical devices, or guide the evaluation of vendors who may supply materials with different impurity profiles. Our expertise in materials analysis supports the selection of materials that are formulated to withstand particular end-use conditions, helping to improve your overall product lifespan, reliability, and safety.
Our Hong Kong lab team provides recommendations for process improvements, verification, and implementation of existing methods, R&D methodologies, process troubleshooting, and quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) test method validation.
