Shelf Life Testing Labs

Avomeen Analytical Services offers a variety of accelerated stability (ASLT) & shelf life testing Services.  We are pleased to be able to offer food, beverage, supplement, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic shelf life testing.  Shelf life testing can be conducted under multiple conditions including accelerated, 40C/75RH and real time conditions, 25C/6RH and temperature cycling. We have extensive experience with CTFA, Colipa and FDA protocols as well as custom design based on the unique characteristics of the product.

Sample Stability Cabinets and Chambers
40ºC / 75% RH 30ºC / 65% RH 20ºC (Ambient) -20ºC (Freezer)
30ºC / 75% RH 25ºC / 60% RH 2ºC to 8ºC -80ºC (Ultra-Low)

Freeze Thaw Stability Testing

Shelf life studies can be extended to include freeze-thaw cycle testing to determine if the formula will remain stable under various conditions. The sample is subjected to a series of extreme, rapid temperature changes similar to what is encounter during normal shipping and handling processes.

Accelerated Stability Testing

Our accelerated aging analysis process will help get your products on the shelf faster and can identify potential problems earlier in the production cycle which can help prevent costly problems like consumer recalls and product defects. By exposing your food, beverage, cosmetic, supplement, or pharmaceutical product to increased, but controlled environmental conditions over time, we create reliable results on determining your products’ predicted shelf life.  We control for a number of elements including various temperature and humidity levels.

Product & Packaging Integrity Testing

We can also develop methods for product integrity.  Such methods may involve Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer (FT-IR), Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectroscopy (GC/MS) or High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC).

Real Time Stability Testing

For products with strict regulations that require specific temperature or humidity levels in packaging and storage accelerated testing may not be applicable.  For these instances, Avomeen also has longevity and 3 year stability programs available.

As with all testing done at our independent facilities, each project will be custom designed depending on your specific needs by one of our Ph.D. scientists.  Our scientists are available both during and after testing services to answer questions, and compile detailed comprehensive reports.  Our cGMP-compliant facility can perform a variety of testing services to help with your product development.
