Consumer Safety Compliance Standards

SPEX CertiPrep offers a line of Consumer Safety Compliance Standards designed for the testing of consumer goods. Recent RoHS/WEEE regulations have restricted levels of heavy metals in consumer products and waste electronics. USP 232 has been enacted to control the levels of elemental impurities in pharmaceuticals. Additional regulations have also been enacted to control a variety of metals and phthalates in plastics and children’s products.

SPEX CertiPrep actively conducts research on many interesting topics. Our most recent, “Preparation and Examination of Imported Children’s Toys for Phthalates and Bisphenol A Using Novel Cryogenic Grinding Methods, Certified Reference Materials and GC-MS Analysis,” is being presented at Pittcon on Thursday 3/15, 9:35AM, Room 307D. Visit our YouTube channel and website for more information and to view previous presentations.

Wine Standards

Wine is a complex combination of water, alcohol, acids, pectins, polyphenols, sugars, tannins and other flavonoid compounds.
