Smokeless Tobacco Products (STPs) are modified risk tobacco products (MRTPs) that allow nicotine delivery without combustion.
Enthalpy Specialty Labs offers a range of test methods for the collection and analysis of select compounds in traditional STPs including chewing tobacco (loose leaf, plug, or twist), snus, dissolvable tobacco, and snuff (moist, dry, or in packets). These methods cover a range of compounds including nicotine and the FDA’s list of HPHCs. In addition, we can assist clients with long-term stability projects with on-site and off-site storage capabilities, flavor-marker testing, dissolution / artificial saliva, and the analysis of client generated in-vitro toxicology samples.
