OpenSciences: analysis laboratory and R&D center
Expert in the study of inhalation products, Ingésciences relies on the technical and scientific knowledge acquired by the former LFEL (French Laboratory of E-liquid). LFEL, a major player in vapology at the origin of several substantial studies, has been a partner of VDLV since 2014.
OpenSciences is involved in the design and chemical formulation of products and their regulatory compliance. With a multidisciplinary team, the laboratory designs adapted analytical methods through high performance equipment (U-SAV )to perform chemical, physical and biological analyses.
VDLV relies on Ingésciences for the behavioural study of vapers by associating the variability of the material and the chemical diversity of the e-liquids used. Their methodology makes it possible to study the composition of steam and establish baselines for scientific research. The OpenSciences teams are also able to establish benchmarks for comparing products and provide analytical answers on the potential risks associated with the use of an electronic cigarette.
