Supra R&D offers a number of analyses related to chemical residues and contaminants. In addition, we offer services such as chemical fingerprinting which can be used for concerns such as product authenticity.

Supra is engaged in a series of initiatives with the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) related to product authentication.
