Are You Testing for Vitamin E Acetate?

by Tari Elkin, Emerald Scientific

While the cause of a recent outbreak of vaping-related illnesses has not been officially defined, health authorities are focusing on Vitamin E acetate as the potential culprit. It’s believed that vitamin E acetate was used as a diluent for a large number of the vaping cartridges linked to the respiratory illness cases. While Vitamin E acetate is commonly found in dietary supplements and cosmetics, it has not been approved for inhalation.

Current regulations do not require the testing of product additives, such as Vitamin E acetate. Nevertheless, cannabis testing laboratories are stepping up to ensure the safety of products being distributed to consumers, by analyzing vaping products for vitamin E acetate. Emerald Scientific is proud to assist laboratories taking action on verifying product safety. We provide all of the sample preparation materials and certified reference materials that laboratories need for these analyses.
