    Assessment of within-package and lot-to-lot variability associated with quartz collection pads in the determination of metals in aerosol

    WAGSTAFF W.; JOZA P.; PAICO-AVILEZ H.; ZHENG T.; DONISA C.; RODRIGUEZ-LAFUENTE A.
    Labstat International Inc., Kitchener, ON, Canada
    Determining aerosol metals routinely requires an assessment of differences between test sample aerosol results and collection blanks. When using pad collection principles, the background levels associated with metals from the quartz pad can make the ...

    Determination of untargeted compounds in e-liquids using high-performance liquid chromatography-time of flight-mass spectrometry (LC-ToF-MS)

    CHALCRAFT K.; JOZA P.; BIERNACKA P.; LI D.
    Labstat International Inc., Kitchener, ON, Canada
    Techniques like headspace-solid phase microextraction-gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (HS-SPME-GCMS) can identify a wide range of volatile and semi-volatile compounds in e-liquids associated with flavor active compounds of different classes. The ...

    A statistical analysis of variability in polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) from reference and commercial cigarettes

    WAGSTAFF W.; RICKERT W.; JOZA P.
    Labstat international ULC, Kitchener, Ontario, Canada
    This study was conducted to characterize the variability of mainstream PAH emissions data and to investigate the ability to detect differences amongst products. The mainstream yields of a reference cigarette (Kentucky Reference 3R4F) were obtained for a ...

    An alternative strategy for the determination of pH values of aerosol from electronic cigarettes

    JOZA P.; MOHAMMAD A.; RICKERT W.S.
    Labstat International ULC, Kitchener, ON, Canada
    Any pH determination to measure the effective acid-base properties of an aerosol is dependent on the measurement technique. Determinations of aerosol pH using puff-by-puff collections are influenced by the buffer used to condition the electrode, while ...

    The impact of 2, 4-dinitrophenylhydrazine (DNPH) background in the determination of carbonyls compounds in e-cigarette vapor

    DONISA C.; JOZA P.; RODRIGUEZ-LAFUENTE A.; RICKERT W.S.
    Labstat International, Kitchener, ON, Canada
    Carbonyl compounds, are known to be present in some e-liquid formulations and can be formed during aerosol generation. Analysis of these compounds, as their hydrazones (2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine; DNPH) are routinely performed using high performance ...

    Analysis of organic acid content in e-liquids and e-cigarette aerosol by high performance liquid chromatography – ultraviolet detection (HPLC-UV)

    RODRIGUEZ-LAFUENTE A.; LODEVICO R.; SHARIFI M.; JOZA P.; RICKERT W.S.
    Labstat International, Kitchener, ON, Canada
    Weak organic acids can be used as preservative agents, potentially affecting the stability of e-cigarette solutions. However, they can also impact characteristics like the aroma and taste of aerosols. The objective of this study was to develop and ...
