E-cigarette testing

We have been testing e-cigarettes and e-liquids since their inception. Our testing capabilities are listed here and we can offer bespoke method development for other compounds on request.

  • E-cigarettes, using a wide range of puff volumes, puff frequencies, puff durations and puff profiles
  • Total vapour, nicotine and water yields
  • Propylene glycol and glycerol yields
  • Delivery of menthol and other flavours in e-cigarette vapour
  • Failure rates and puffing to exhaustion, including defined puff blocks for consistency of yields
  • Pressure drop of e-cigarettes
  • Liquids, for both composition and performance comparisons
  • Products for yields of compounds such as
    • Carbonyls
    • Ethylene glycol and diethylene glycol
    • Minor tobacco alkaloids
    • Metals
    • PAHs (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons)
    • Tobacco-specific and volatile nitrosamines
