Due to the increase in demand for regulatory ENDS and e-liquids testing, Hall Analytical has invested in a Cerulean SM450e vaping machine, itself designed with CORESTA Recommended Method No 81 for Electronic Cigarettes in mind.
Housed in a self-contained humidity and temperature monitored environment, it allows testing to be carried out entirely separate from our other studies, keeping possible cross contamination to a minimum.
As with all of our laboratory areas, it is covered by our ISO 17025 quality system ensuring full traceability from sample receipt to reporting.
The 20 port functionality of the instrument, controlled by a touch screen PC, allows for fully automated high throughput sampling. 4 banks (each controlling 5 ports) can be individually controlled to allow different parameters to be applied to each such as puff volume, number of puffs, puff duration/interval and theangle at which the device is vaped.
