Technology for vapor product emissions testing & smoke, vapor, and addiction research
With backgrounds in science, research, and hardware development, we're vapor product experts. Our technology is behind some of the most rigorous and innovative scientific studies on aerosol toxicity, e-cigarette / ENDS emissions, and real-world vaping behavior. We automate vapor product quality assurance and product evaluation in private labs across the globe.
This looks a lot like smoking.
This looks very different from smoking.
Vaporizer, mainstream aerosol
Cigarette, mainstream smoke
We can all agree: Careful studies are needed.
As a substitute to smoking, vaping has massive potential for benefiting public health through harm reduction. But perception of vaping is increasingly negative: most Americans think vaping is just as harmful as smoking.
Studies have shown that - depending on the device, power settings, liquid composition, and other conditions - vapor products can produce high levels of carcinogens and harmful constituents.
Can we ensure the relative safety of these products?
Years of careful research will be necessary to create product guidelines and regulations that effectively promote population-level harm reduction. Gram Research exists to facilitate vapor product testing and evaluation.
See how Gram helped researchers prove the cause of the vaping crisis:
Gram builds precision tools that facilitate testing & critical research.
We make it easy for researchers and laboratories to perform rigorous, repeatable tests and experiments with vapor products under consistent, controlled conditions. Materials & methods are our specialty.
