Eurofins CRL was first incorporated in 1992 as Clinical Research Laboratories. Today, Eurofins CRL operates as a contract laboratory dedicated to providing a wide range of in vitro and in vivo clinical safety and efficacy testing to the cosmetic, beauty, personal care, and pharmaceutical industries. Eurofins CRL combines a highly skilled technical staff with state-of-the-art equipment and facilities located in New Jersey, North Carolina, and Texas. We are committed to providing cost-effective testing of the highest quality, combined with timely scheduling, comprehensive final reports, and a commitment to customer service. Areas of expertise include:
Safety / Clinical Trials
CRL provides human repeated insult patch testing (HRIPT) as both shared and exclusive panels. We also offer a variety of safety-in-use (SIU) studies to meet the needs of any specific product category. There are a variety of standard safety tests that CRL provides which can be modified to meet new and emerging technologies.
Claims / Bioinstrumentation
Our laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art technologies that measure a variety of human skin attributes (i.e. color, hydration, firmness, etc.). Pairing instrumental data with expert clinical grading and consumer feedback provides a 360 degree approach to support a variety of claims for cosmetics and personal care products.
SPF (UVB) and UVA label claims are a critical component of sunscreen and other consumer products. CRL is equipped with the newest solar simulators and the proper facilities to provide static, water-resistant, and very water resistant SPF tests following the approved FDA Monograph and International methods. In addition, CRL can provide Phototoxicity and Photoallergy testing for all of these consumer product categories.
Microbiology is broken down into two main categories, classical and antimicrobial. Preservative efficacy testing is the main classical test performed to ensure that the product has enough preservative to protect it during the life of the product while in the consumer’s hands. Antimicrobial claims are a set of FDA monograph requirements used to support categories from surgical scrubs through antimicrobial hand washes and are customized to meet the requirements for each individual product tested.
Our full service salon and staff of cosmetologists can provide hair, nail, facial, and ethnic products evaluations. In addition, our staff of cosmetologists and estheticians will professionally apply test materials ensuring that they are uniformly applied for consistent clinical grading.
Pediatrics safety-in-use testing requires specific panels of subjects ranging from six months to twelve years old. CRL can provide the subjects in their proper age group, as well as the Pediatrician and clinical staff with the knowledge to evaluate a wide range of products intended for use on children.
CRL is proud to announce the addition of our Consumer Perception and Focus Room capabilities. Our 20’ by 14’ viewing room comfortably seats up to 25 subjects and it is equipped with state of the art equipment for quick, accurate, and flexible real time data capture. The room can also be reconfigured to accommodate moderated panel sessions that can be monitored by the client.
