Literature Analysis To Support Bridging And Premarket Tobacco Applications
We use advanced analytical methods to scan the available literature for published studies that provide evidence for premarket tobacco applications. The algorithm automatically extracts and represents the knowledge contained in scientific, technical, or general text in a form that enables complex query and knowledge discovery/ visualization. This allows us to streamline the process of finding and leveraging data for a PMTA and discover connections hiding in large bodies of published studies.
Product Characterization and Analyses
We apply, develop and validate regulatory-compliant chemical measurement methods to characterize product components, ingredients, liquids, additives and flavors. Our staff conduct highly accurate and reliable chemical analysis for precise measurement of volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds (VOCs/SVOCs), heavy metals, particulates and tobacco-specific nitrosamines in complex mixtures, including vapors and aerosols.
We have one of the largest specialized in vivo
laboratories in the United States, with more than 30 years of experience conducting specialized inhalation toxicology studies for government and commercial clients in the pharmaceutical, agricultural, chemical and tobacco industries. Our research team provides accurate, objective data for preclinical toxicology studies under regulatory compliant (FDA) guidelines. Learn more
Preclinical and Clinical Participant Studies
We conduct both preclinical and clinical participant studies at our specialized facilities to collect data on user behavior, abuse liability, nonclinical health risk, human health impact and biomarkers of exposure. Our studies are designed to help you understand how product characteristics, user behavior and exposure interrelate so you can make informed decisions and gather the data you need to support market approval.

Human Factors Studies
We can help you understand pre-market evaluation and post-market activities. Our human factors team will guide you on how product design and labeling impact user behaviors (including initiation, cessation, and dual use) as well as consumer perceptions and risks.
