Product Stewardship

Is my product safe?

All manufacturers wonder about the safety of their product. We have many years of experience in the evaluation of products and the safety for human contact with them.  For example, fiberglass insulation: Is fiberglass insulation safe in my home? Is it safe to work with? We developed an image process to answer that question. The conclusion was that fiberglass over a certain length can be dangerous, so manufacturers changed the length of the fiber glass for product safety.

Inhalation Toxicology

Scientific robust experiments to determine the likelihood of a product that when inhaled might produce a disease.

  • Scientific integrity and unbiased report of the findings

It is known that amosite is a type of asbestos fiber known to be dangerous when inhaled. Inhalation toxicology studies are done to compare this known dangerous material with other products of unknown toxicity. This is called a positive control.

We use a spectrum of controls to compare your product. Such as amosite, air, particles, etc.

Very important studies to find the correct dose.

The lifetime study: exposure time is set to be the equivalent of a working career exposure of a person.

90-Day Study is to evaluate the toxicity of the material likelihood to cause a disease or be damaging.

In order to establish the parameters for the 90- Day Study, it is necessary to perform a 5-Day Study and a 28-Day Study. This method is used to establish thresholds of response or toxicity, titrate levels, and establish a dose.

We have extensive experience in this type of studies with different products, as well as a series of publications in peer- reviewed journals.

Litigation Research

Some of our results have been used in legal related matters. We have experience in the development of studies to test for product safety, patent infringement as well as  preparation of legal team and expert witnesses.

  • Content and distribution materials

  • Identify features in a product with the potential to be dangerous

  • We team with pathologist, pulmonary toxicologists, scientists, engineers, data analysis experts

  • Consulting

  • New technology development

  • We also work with legal firms engaged in litigation and patent infringement
