Going Beyond Testing
We have released a new podcast series called, ‘Going Beyond Testing’ in 2022 to give companies and consumers an insider’s look at testing practices and what should be tested to keep products safe and effective. The series will cover the importance of analytical testing, emphasizing transparency and integrity in the testing practices and what’s required by testing labs to make dietary supplements, including cannabis and CBD products, as well as pharmaceutical drugs safe. The podcast series aims to educate both businesses and consumers about these practices, taking viewers through various areas of testing disciplines, including potency, heavy metal testing procedures, as well as highlighting what types of companies should be testing products.
The podcast content is delivered by Sandra Lee, CEO of NJ Labs, a privately owned FDA and DEA inspected facility that has been a mainstay in the testing industry for 85 years. Joining Lee as host and executive producer in the series is Mark Alyn, an award-winning journalist and executive director of “Late Night Health Radio,” a consumer-driven show focusing on a myriad of health topics in holistic naturopathic and traditional healthcare.
“Transparency is important in every aspect of our work with manufacturers and it is vital to the health and safety of consumers,” said Lee. “It’s important for companies to prove that a product is safe with testing, as well as be honest with customers if something has gone wrong and show how it is going to be corrected. This is why a trusted lab is needed as a partner in the process to be honest about testing results even if it’s not what the company wants to hear.”
