Chemical testing and analysis is vital for regulatory compliance and to understand the quality and composition of chemical substances and materials that are used in products, industrial processes and manufacturing. Specialist industry knowledge and expertise in applying the most relevant methodology are the keys to successful chemical testing. Advanced analytical instrumentation or a combination of techniques is necessary to solve problems or determine composition.
a chemical test is a qualitative or quantitative procedure designed to prove the existence of, or to quantify, a chemical compound or chemical group with the aid of a specific reagent.
Chemical testing might have a variety of purposes, such as:
1] Determine if, or verify that, the requirements of a specification, regulation, or contract are met
2] Decide if a new product development program is on track: Demonstrate proof of concept
3] Demonstrate the utility of a proposed patent
4] Determine the interactions of a sample with other known substances
5] Determine the composition of a sample
6] Provide standard data for other scientific, medical, and Quality assurance functions
7] Validate suitability for end-use
8] Provide a basis for Technical communication
9] Provide a technical means of comparison of several options
10] Provide evidence in legal proceedings
