Volumetric flasks for deformulation

LPD Lab Services can help in deformulation and reformulation of products. This may involve many of the varied types of investigation available for example :

Chemical analysis is divided into two major categories:

  • Proximate analysis such as loss on drying which measures a bulk property such as moisture.
  • Compositional analysis such as the identity or quantity of a substance or both in the formulation being investigated.

additive label for formulation and deformulationDeformulation is the process of taking a formulated chemical or material product separating and identifying its constituent components, identifying and quantifying each component so that the end result is a recipe for the product.

Organisations can have many reasons for deformulating products such as checking a product for banned substances, confirmation of product identity, benchmarking, defending a patent or even competitor product reverse engineering.

The methods used to deformulate a product are varied and depend upon the type of product product as well as the available budget. At LPD Lab Services we have access to a wide variety of analytical techniques to separate and identify the components and are able to advise on the approach that is most likely to yield a result within the available budget..

Our aim at LPD Lab Services is not only to provide the customer with a breakdown of contents of a product but also to provide a value added service, for example we can:

  • Make trial batches of the product if necessary (generally up to 100 litres) and / or advise the customer how to make it themselves safely and accurately.
  • Give guidance on improving or altering the formulation to differentiate it from existing products or to give additional functionality.
  • Advise on replacements and alternatives where a formulation contains banned or environmentally problematic substances.
Deformulation Case Study - What's my Competitor Using?

'What’s my competitor using' is an example of how LPD Lab Services might tackle a typical deformulation exercise and some of the problems that might potentially be met.
