We are skilled at understanding complex toxicity hazards and can provide the answers you need to ensure safe products for your customers. Distributors, retailers and manufacturers alike have taken advantage of Jordi’s extensive expertise in quality testing, certification of products for FDA review and compliance with both domestic and international safety standards.
The FDA often requires that packaging products be subjected to a migration study to determine the chemical constituents that could potentially migrate from packaging materials into the food they are in contact with to ensure product safety. Typical experimental designs include exposing the packaging product to specific contact matrices, or simulants, that imitate use conditions. The product is exposed to a simulant at a specified concentration, temperature and time period. Jordi Labs has the experience and the chemical knowledge to help customize migration studies according to client needs and FDA requirements. We are virtually unlimited in the types of simulants we can prepare, including a diverse array of hydrophobic and hydrophilic conditions. After exposing the product to the selected conditions, the simulant can be analyzed using mass spectroscopy or other appropriate technique to characterize major and trace level chemical components that have migrated into it from the packaging product. We work with regulatory bodies such as the FDA and European compliance community to assist our customers in getting their products approved.
