Gram technology enables rigorous smoke, vapor, and addiction research & vapor product emissions testing

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.

Public perception of vaping has shifted. Most Americans now think vaping is just as harmful as smoking.

Millions of vape consumers disagree, and they're in good company. Public Health England, The National Academy of Sciences, and even the commissioner of the tobacco division of the FDA have all publicly stated otherwise.

Of course, electronic cigarette and vaporizer usage is not without its own risks. But as a substitute to smoking, vaping has massive potential for benefiting public health through harm reduction.

Vaporizer, mainstream aerosol
Cigarette, mainstream smoke

This looks very different from smoking.


Depending on the exact device, liquid composition, and other conditions, vapor can deliver nicotine without tar and many other cancer-causing components of tobacco smoke.

Studies have shown that vapor products can also produce high levels of carcinogens - but under what conditions? Can we ensure the relative safety of these products?

We can all agree:
Careful studies are needed.

Years of careful research will be necessary to create product guidelines and regulations that effectively promote population-level harm reduction. Gram exists to facilitate vapor product testing and evaluation.
