Avomeen’s specialty is performing sample & product deformulation analysis to reverse engineer a products formulation. Our deformulation lab can breakdown even the most complex products formulations both identifying and quantifying the ingredients used in the creation of the product.
This data can be used for a variety of reasons including the recreating or reformulating the product, proving/disproving marketing claims, solving product failure issues, identifying contaminates and other foreign particles, analyzing raw materials, and for use in litigation cases involving patent infringement or contamination.
The skilled chemists in our deformulation lab can reverse engineer a variety of products to determine their chemical composition including cosmetics, polymers & plastics, paints & coatings, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, cleaning products, food & beverage, and a wide range of consumer and specialty products.
Analytical techniques utilized in our deformulation analyses include:
We pride ourselves on providing a superior level of customer services and ensuring that we complete your project right the first time. Avomeen’s deformulation chemists are there for you both during and after the analysis has been completed. All of our projects are custom designed and detailed reports are produced that can be used by those with or without a chemistry background.
Case Study – Deformulation Lab: Competitive Product Analysis
Industry: Consumer Products
Problem: Japanese competitor sold a better product
Solution: A ball-point pen manufacturer wanted to know why the ink from a competing Japanese ball-point manufacturer dried faster and had a brighter color. The problem called for a detailed deformulation analysis of the competing product, which involved separation of the various components using a series of solvent extractions and preparative chromatographic techniques.
The ingredients were identified by Avomeen’s deformulation lab using NMR, GC/MS and FT-IR spectroscopy which allowed the client to reformulate his product using the new found ingredients and improve his products performance.
