Research and Development

We provide custom research and development services across all major industries through our NSF Applied Research Center (ARC). ARC establishes strategic partnerships with academia, industry and regulatory bodies for research and development projects geared to furthering public health in water safety, food safety, pharma, sustainability and consumer goods.

We provide research, contract method development, testing, consulting in chemistry, microbiology, toxicology, laboratory quality/management, methods training and human health risk assessment.

We perform confidential research and development analyses and can validate manufacturer and environmental claims. These value-added services enable NSF customers to efficiently and economically improve product marketability. We also provide partnership of grants including data generation for grant package submission and grant drafting assistance.

Other services include sanitation, hygiene and contamination control in which we evaluate microbial control systems and practices in the healthcare, food, water and environmental safety sectors.
