Analytical testing across the broad commercial range of consumer products is essential to ensure the safety of end users, support the continuous supply of quality offerings to the marketplace, protect a company’s brand and reputation, and meet regulatory requirements.

Product recalls and failures are costly. A company can suffer enormous tangible and intangible losses. The adoption of new analytical methods and technologies can enable companies to maximize the accuracy, cost-efficiency, and productivity of risk assessment and ongoing monitoring of product safety and quality.

This white paper highlights five different compound types commonly used in consumer products—biocides, disperse dyes, flame retardants, phthalates, and primary aromatic amines—and some of the analytical and regulatory challenges related to each. For each type of compound, a related application describes the use of novel liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry technologies to solve complex analyses.

Key Learning Objectives

  • Understand the challenges consumer products testing faces in a shifting regulatory environment
  • Learn how to monitor potential effects of new compounds and polymers used in consumer products manufacturing
  • See case studies in identifying and quantifying common biocides, dispersion dyes, phthalates, and parabens
