Chem-ST™ is a revolutionary, quantitative chemical testing assessment programme which uses specially developed smart composite and smart testing principles that deliver strategic, risk-reducing, cost-effective, chemical risk management early in the product value chain.
Test differently, test smarter. Because good chemistry in ensures good product out.
Eurofins Chem-ST™ chemical smart testing is a novel, validated system using state-of-the-art instrumentation and targeted tests to quantitatively measure the presence of hundreds of substances within chemical formulations, materials and products against global hazardous chemical restrictions.
Unlike traditional RSL chemical testing (which is based on target analytes), Chem-ST™ looks for both target analytes and other non-regulated chemicals of concern in one system.
This is ideal for customers seeking chemical detection to cleanse their supply chain of all potentially harmful chemicals, providing benefits beyond compliance and reducing the risk of supply chain employees being exposed to these chemicals.
Extended coverage from Chem-ST™ chemical testing
The results from this novel system can be used to give assurance to major global chemical regulations including
- AFIRM RSL
- CA PROP 65
- EU REACH Regulation, RoHS Directive & POPs Regulation
- Chemicals of High Concern to Children (CHCC)
- Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)
- The National GB Standard of China
- US CPSIA
- ZDHC MRSL
Benefits of using Eurofins Chem-ST™ chemical testing
Chem-ST™ delivers reduced cost and increased visibility for RSL management and beyond
The benefits of Eurofins Chem-ST™ chemical testing are significant.
Chem-ST™ offers a faster, more cost-effective alternative to traditional testing programmes. It delivers savings in the overall costs of testing, product submission and shipping.
The unique smart testing system also allows for multiple composites and materials to be tested simultaneously, significantly reducing the number of analyses required.
Chem-ST™ covers all key global chemical restrictions using ISO testing equivalents with regular data analytics provided using data management software. This ensures quick access to information showing results to industry or customised Restricted Substance List (RSL) specifications.
Key benefits of Chem-ST™ for supply chain chemical management
- Faster and more cost-effective testing
- Proactive service for future chemicals of concern
- Avoid costly delays by testing further upstream in the supply chain
- Substrate-independent, multiple composites testing
- Reduction in size of submitted test samples needed
- Covers all key global chemical restrictions using ISO testing equivalents
- Smart dashboards used to deliver the results
- Use on chemical formulations, raw materials, finished or final articles
