Heated Tobacco Products

Modified Risk Tobacco Product (MRTP) Testing


Enthalpy Specialty Labs is constantly adapting to the needs of the nicotine market. Since the onset of heated tobacco product development for tobacco harm reduction (THR), we have been on the forefront of HNB (heat not burn) / HTP testing. Enthalpy Specialty Labs have developed and validated a variety of HPHC methods for heated tobacco products. Below is a list of the common HPHCs we can detect.
