Tobacco Analysis

The ASL Service range covers the current methods of tobacco and tobacco product analysis, including the measurement of physical parameters and residue analysis.

Our smoking analyses as well as the measurement of ignition propensity (LIP test) are accredited according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 and our lab is officially listed as an approved EU testing laboratory for these tests.

In addition to testing cigarette smoke for nicotine, condensate and carbon monoxide according to standards regulated by law, numerous other components of tobacco products and tobacco smoke can be determined.

• §38 TabakerzG, §2 TPD according directive 2014/40/EU of the European Union
