Lucideon Publishes New White Paper on Surface Imaging for Product Claim Support

Lucideon has published a new white paper entitled 'The Use of Imaging for Claim Support in the Healthcare Industry'. The paper, written by Dr Chris Pickles, details a number of surface imaging techniques available to help substantiate product claims, with a focus on consumer healthcare applications.

The paper discusses the benefits that surface imaging offers as a tool for proving the effectiveness of consumer healthcare products. Some of the applications covered include identifying the delivery of key actives from toothpastes into teeth and the surface coverage of conditioning agents in haircare products.

Dr Chris Pickles, Principal Consultant and Capability Leader of Surface Science, Lucideon, said:

"Claim substantiation testing offers an effective and robust route for proving product claims. These claims can then be used on packaging and for advertising to consumers. It's a useful additional and complementary source of evidence alongside product performance evaluation and consumer/clinical trials and can be used for a wide number of applications.

"We often use customized methods to deliver vital quantitative data and visual results which promote understanding of product behaviour. Being able to effectively support product claims is crucial to our clients to meet regulatory requirements, in-house standards and also to encourage consumer confidence."

Lucideon is a UKAS accredited testing laboratory and materials technology company and provides testing for a wide range of industries to support product claims, identify failures and develop methods and products.

Lucideon's surface science department offers a wide range of techniques to help its clients achieve the data and understanding that helps drive their products forward.
