Tobacco laboratories face numerous scientific and operational challenges to meet the demands of growing regulatory requirements. Tobacco testing requires the analysis of trace constituents in complex natural product and smoke matrices. Laborious sample cleanup procedures are often deployed in order to achieve these requirements. Robust methods for regulatory reporting, quality control and screening for contaminants in raw materials and finished products are also necessary to ensure product safety.
By integrating analytical standards, reagents, columns, sample preparation products, chromatography, mass spectrometry, data management and informatics software, Waters provides analytical solutions to address challenging applications. Waters is committed to providing state-of-the-art technology to enable the development of new methods to meet tobacco product legislative requirements.
