  • Reverse Engineering & Deformulation

    Deformulation, also known as reverse engineering, refers to the separation, identification and quantification of ingredients in formulas. It can provide specific information about the composition of the formulated product and the interaction of the ingredients, helping to determine which chemicals or materials are incorporated into the product.

    Deformation or reverse engineering is a challenging task that requires a broad understanding of the type of product and the potential compounds that may be part of the formulation. The more you know about the chemistry and use of the product, the more time-saving and cost-effective the deformation process will be.

    T,C&A Lab is an industry expert in the field of product and material reverse engineering & deformulation. After collecting as much information as possible from the customer, we will conduct some research to determine any other information that will help us in our analysis, and then we will prepare a quotation based on the time required.
