Enthalpy Analytical offers a range of test methods for the collection and analysis of harmful and potentially harmful constituents (HPHCs) in smokeless tobacco products including snus and snuff.  This includes methods that cover a range of compounds including nicotine and the list of FDA HPHCs.

Enthalpy’s two tobacco testing laboratories located in Richmond, VA and Durham, NC offer clients redundancy and flexibility in our testing processes.  Equipment within the lab is supported by a backup electric generator and uninterruptable power system (UPS).  In addition to traditional HPHC testing of smokeless tobacco,  Enthalpy can assist clients with long term stability projects with on-site storage capabilities, flavor marker testing, as well as the analysis of client generated in-vitro samples.

The science of analyzing tobacco products poses many unique challenges; these are highly complex matrices from which to generate samples suitable for instrumental analysis.  The process of creating these samples requires the development and implementation of revolutionary techniques to manipulate both cigarettes and smokeless tobacco products.

Our project scientists utilize internationally recognized accepted test methods, enhanced and adapted for our laboratory, to deliver consistently high quality data.  Each smokeless tobacco project we conduct is generated under our rigorous ISO 17025 quality system, meaning the procedures used to generate your data are reliable and will stand-up to scrutiny from inside and outside your organization.  All laboratory data collected from analytical system outputs are stored on a secure, access-limited network with firewall and intrusion protection systems.
