Manufacturing Testing Lab: Common Myths & Misconceptions
Releasing a new product or updating the manufacturing process of an existing product doesn’t have to be difficult. Avomeen believes our partnership and support can help you achieve anything. We’re here to dismiss common myths about manufacturing labs and the hardships of product development.
Myth #1: My company is too small to work with Avomeen.
Avomeen has worked with companies of all shapes and sizes from startups to companies you’d recognize at national distributors and retailers. We’re ready to partner with you to help you turn your big dreams into reality.
Myth #2: My idea isn’t formed enough to work with a lab.
Although having a fully formed concept or idea can help the process go more quickly, it isn’t totally necessary. Avomeen’s formulation and innovation experts will work with you from early concepting to production to ensure your needs are fully met.
Myth #3: The previous manufacturer I was using owns rights to my product’s formulation, so I will have to create an entirely new product.
Avomeen’s formulation experts can deformulate, or reverse engineer, any product to identify original components or create a completely new formula, which your organization will own the intellectual property (IP) rights to. This enables you to own your formula in its entirety. You will no longer be limited to a particular manufacturer, distributor or vendor.
Comprehensive Manufacturing Product Testing Support
Chemical reverse engineering, commonly known as deformulation, is the method of analyzing a product’s formulation to identify individual components and quantify those specific components. In product development and manufacturing, this process is vital recovering lost formulas or enhancing existing product formulas to meet performance or regulatory specifications. Avomeen’s deformulation laboratory can identify and quantify both major and minor components within a variety of products. Deformulation often leads to product reformulation, another area of expertise for Avomeen’s team of innovators and formulation scientists.
Product reformulation is taking the existing formulation and modifying specific components to improve the overall performance, change various physical properties or even make the product more environmentally friendly. Our team of expert formulators can change colors, scents, textures and other aspects to meet regulatory requirements, improve performance, or make minor modifications to meet established performance and ingredient criteria. Some formulations may need major changes whereas in others, slight tweaks can result in an optimized formula with peak performance.
If you’re interested in developing a new innovative product, Avomeen has more than 30 years of combined experience developing a breadth of formulations across a wide range of industries. Our expertise extends from industrial manufacturing to personal care to green and eco-friendly products. In our purpose-built, state-of-the-art facilities, our consultative team is equipped to offer a comprehensive and tailored formulation development process. With Avomeen’s collective expertise, you can rest assured the product you envisioned will be the product delivered.
Developing a new product may be a challenge and sometimes that challenge is the formulation’s stability. Avomeen offers small batch manufacturing to help our clients gauge the changes needed to make their product a success. Our goal is to create the dream formulation, so our clients can move from development to larger-scale operations in the manufacturing process. Avomeen’s accurate testing and analysis can give your small batch an edge and allow you to make necessary changes based on scientific data.
Packaging is the first thing a consumer notices when looking to make a purchase and it may potentially be one of the reasons a consumer chooses your product over a competitor. No matter the industry, it’s important to determine a cost-effective option that makes the most sense for both the product and your brand. Avomeen’s packaging selection expertise and industry relationships to help you select the perfect packaging for your product while conforming to applicable regulatory standards and guidelines.
Scale Up & Manufacturing Support
One of the last steps prior to commercialization is scaling up your formulation to meet production needs. Avomeen has the expertise to make the scale-up and transfer process seamless whether you’re manufacturing in-house or partnering with an external facility. Additionally, Avomeen offers small batch manufacturing which may be useful in perfecting your formulation and scale-up plan prior to engaging your chosen external manufacturer.
Utilizing a variety of advanced instrumentation allows our expert formulators to understand your top competitor’s products. In turn, our team of scientists are able to identify key differences and make recommendations for potential product improvements. Our analyses can identify, characterize and quantify the components within a sample to better understand product flaws, potential contamination hazards, safety concerns, regulatory issues, and more. Let our team of expert formulators then reformulate your product to outperform your top competitors in the marketplace.
Gain competitive advantage through transparent safety and efficacy testing. Efficacy testing provides support for marketing claims and can improve the marketability of your products. Whether you are developing new products or entering new markets, you need to partner with a reliable laboratory to conduct your safety and efficacy testing. Avomeen’s skilled team can analyze your current formulation to offer targeted improvements which can increase the overall effectiveness of your product, confirm shelf life or determine if your product would benefit from reformulation and/or formulation optimization.
