Preview of 2019 Conference: Rapid Stability Prediction Methods for Consumer Products

Stanislav Jaracz, Hongwei Shen Colgate Palmolive, Cross-category Research & Innovation, Piscataway, NJ, USA: The rapid methodology developed in our lab is utilizing LUMiSizer to accelerate gravitational and temperature stress for selected liquid systems. Various data acquisition & processing methods have been explored to identify the best way to correlate LUMiSizer rapid data to standard accelerated data at 40°C as well as room temperature stability.
