Deformulation, also referred to as Reverse Engineering, requires the separation of the ingredients or components of a product or formulation in order to further identify and quantify them. The overall objective is to identify and quantify all of the ingredients in the test item. Deformulations are often done along with reformulations. Multi component formulations with a large number of ingredients for example may present challenges and we are equipped to help you overcome these challenges.
Our experienced chemists can deformulate the most complicated formulations. We are experienced in a variety of industries including pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, food & beverages and an extensive range of other products.
EuTech has successfully deformulated a variety of products including:
- Pharmaceutical products
- Cosmetic products including gels, lotions, perfumes, hair removal creams and ointments
- Detergents and cleaners
- Paints and coatings
The deformulation experiments involve multiple extractions followed by extensive instrumentation techniques such as:
