Bradford's Applied Research Laboratory mimics the production equipment in our factories with a full range of pilot-scale equipment. We can create samples that leverage the latest ingredients and technologies with the assurance that they can be easily replicated in a production environment.
Our cutting-edge laboratory information management system (LIMS) enables us to create and track all custom formulations. The LIMS software has been customized to integrate into Bradford's raw material management system, and leverages that information to aid in formula costing, project control, and regulatory information tracking. The system is compatible with Oracle and complies with the Code of Federal Regulations, CFS111, for data logging.
The laboratories' color matching systems can match any product to a specific Pantone color, a standard color reproduction system. It provides our customers with a broad range of color options and confidence that we can consistently replicate that color in production. This system utilizes a research-grade scanning colorimeter that visually and mathematically captures the sample's color signature. It provides a permanent record for easy retrieval in quality control and quality assurance applications.
