Chemical Composition Analysis and Testing

Service Detail from Intertek


Chemical composition testing and analysis of samples, mixtures of substances, or unknown substances through our global laboratory network

Accurate analysis of the chemical composition of a material will provide invaluable information, assisting chemical problem solving, supporting R&D and ensuring the quality of a chemical formulation or product.

Chemical composition analysis can require the application of a combination of analytical methods in order to achieve a full picture of the chemical structures and concentrations of the components in a sample. To aid product development, the concentration of specific components, such as an active ingredient which impart a unique function to the product, should be determined in order to understand the product's performance or quality.

Obtaining reliable impurity profiles can also assist with product development and resolve manufacturing issues. Unknown substances can be very difficult to identify.

Our global network of chemical analysis laboratories test samples, materials and products for chemical composition and impurities. Our chemical analysis scientists have considerable expertise in determining the chemical composition of a sample, trace analysis, reverse engineering, elemental analysis, trace metals testing, REACH substance ID testing and advanced research support. We regularly develop and optimise (and validate, if necessary) analytical methods to make them suitable for your requirements and the industry sector within which you operate. Intertek also provides composition analysis - first identifying the unknown substances (via the deformulation process) and then quantifying them in the sample.

We apply our Total Quality Assurance expertise to provding composition analysis serving a wide range of industry sectors and sample types including chemicals, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, polymers, medical devices, consumer products, packaging materials and more.
