Toy Testing


Toys and children's products have been under scrutiny since the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA) was enacted. In order to deliver both high quality and safe products to US consumers, manufacturers must have a complete understanding of the differences between a toy, children's product, child care article, and durable nursery goods. Do you?

Analytical Services


MSR offers comprehensive analytical chemistry services to satisfy CPSIA and other regulatory requirements. Ensure your products are evaluated for heavy metals including lead & cadmium, phthalates, FDA Food Contact Surfaces and much more.

Consulting Services

Flammability Testing

flammability2Nominated as the official cigarette tesing laboratory for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, MSR Labs works closely with the state's Department of Fire & Safety to regularly audit cigarette manufacturers. This partnership allows the state to confirm cigarette burning characteristics are in accordance with newly established guidelines and do not present an increased inherent flammability risk. Additionally, MSR Labs conducts flammability testing for a wide variety of consumer products such as textiles, candles, toys and children's products amongst numerous others.

ATV Testing


One of the most dangerous products sold in the United States, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), are All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV's). In 2008, ATV's accounted for more than 135,000 injuries, of which 28% were operators under the age of 16. MSR Labs consults with manufacturers to develop & submit ATV Action Plans and fully certifies all ATV labeling, functionality & performance criteria according to CPSC guidelines.

Hard Goods


Despite the overwhelming focus on new federal and state regulations for product safety over the last few years, another critical area of quality assurance testing is product performance. Testing physical and mechanical properties is essential to ensuring customer satisfaction. Furthermore, MSR Laboratories can benchmark your testing program against your top competitors.
