GLP Contract Testing Services at FDS

Take advantage of our applications lab, where we provide Good Laboratory Practice sample testing of your research projects, through verification of test samples, and thorough demonstration of our instrumentations’ suitability to your specifications.  We maintain a fully-equipped surface science laboratory with state-of-the-art instrumentation to address a myriad of physical and chemical property characterizations on liquids, solids, suspensions, emulsions, and foams. Whether your interest lies in determining the contact angle of a liquid on a substrate, surface free energy, static and dynamic surface/interfacial tensions, the stability of your suspensions or emulsions, rheological properties, or the study of foam generation and/or decay, we can provide the results as part of a detailed analysis report.

Our testing services consist of measuring:

  • Contact Angle
  • Dynamic Contact Angle
  • Surface Free Energy (according to 9 different methods)
  • Static Surface Tension
  • Interfacial Tension
  • Dynamic Surface Tension
  • Suspension/dispersion stability
  • Cleanliness
  • Foamability
  • Any extreme applications
  • Temperature range -30°C up to 1800°C
  • Humidity and pressure controlled applications
  • High frame rate for quick wetting/adsorption testing
  • And many other specific methods for certain cases

Fields that we have done research in, but are not limited to includes:

  • Pharmaceutical Drugs
  • Paints & Varnishes
  • Detergents
  • Personal/Body Care
  • Cosmetics
  • Biomedical Equipment
  • Glass & Ceramic Surfaces
  • Adhesives
  • Oil & Petroleum
  • Sanitizers
  • Polymers (PTFE, PEEK, TPE, etc.)
  • Powders
  • Fabrics & Single Fibers

Our front-end consultation assures that we design tests and select the best suitable method(s) to meet your exact needs.

We have the right tools

Our laboratory has a variety of state-of-the-art analytical instruments, allowing us to select and utilize the most appropriate one for the task at hand. Our proprietary software assures accurate and objective data reporting.

We provide relevant Data and Analytical Methodology

We apply both qualitative and quantitative techniques in order to obtain accurate and relevant data in a timely fashion to achieve any analytical method development.

We help you to achieve all kinds of analytical methodology and consisting with our various; 

– Procedures
– Protocols


The instruments we use for our testing:


Dynotester                                        SITA t100  tensiometer


Foam Tester

Foam Tester

DCAT11                  DCAT11



and many other configurations.

Our reports thoroughly describe details about the procedure, the methods and the instrumentation used, as well as a professional interpretation of the data that will assist you in making decisions about your formulations and/or processes. We take pride in our work and take our customer needs seriously.

As an example of our recent work, we recently formed a partnership in oil testing group with some of our customers from the oil and petroleum industry, and are actively working to explore and  develop new oil testing standards, in addition to our existing capabilities in doing work which complies with ASTM(ASTM D3825, D1331, D971, etc.) and EN standards. Interesting topics currently under research are optimizing drilling fluids, emulsion stability, testing under deep well conditions, and solutions for unconventional oil and gas recovery.

You are welcome to call us for a detailed discussion.  You can call us directly at 516-349-0663, or leave us a message, and we will provide an exploratory discussion of your testing needs
