FDA-Regulated Ethical Testing Lab

Established in 1975, CPT℠ is an FDA-regulated lab that provides elite testing services to our clients to ensure they provide safe and effective products for their customers. Our state-of-the-art facility is centrally located in Fairfield, NJ.


What Can I Expect?

Every minor is accompanied by their parents or legal guardian and clinical staff during the entire testing process. Each study is overseen by an independent Board-Certified Physician.

Testing time depends on the study you are participating in, however, most visits to our facility are between 30-45 minutes.

The products that are being tested are common over-the-counter personal care products that can be purchased at a drug store without a prescription. We are not performing invasive testing, and as the minor’s parent or guardian, you are present 100% of the time.

To ensure that a company’s product is market-ready, it needs to be evaluated to ensure its safety and effectiveness. Subjects are compensated to test these products under controlled conditions.

All products that are being tested are topical personal care products that are commonly found over-the-counter. CPT℠ is not a research and development laboratory. No pharmaceutical-grade products are included in these tests.

CPT℠ is an FDA-regulated, ethical testing laboratory that prides itself on transparency. Before a study is scheduled for enrollment, the ingredient list of each product is carefully reviewed for safety. The study may also be reviewed by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) to ensure the study will be conducted safely for the subjects.

CPT℠ is a healthy subject testing laboratory. When you enroll your child in the process, you will be required to fill out a full-health profile and medical history. This information is then reviewed by a Registered Nurse to determine eligibility.

Once approved for a specific study, you will submit a W-9 form and provide identification and your child’s birth certificate.

All product testing subjects, regardless of age, can withdraw consent to the study before, during or after the tests. Our main goal is that our subjects feel comfortable and safe.

Although it is a rare occurrence, an allergic reaction may occur, such as a rash, skin irritation or simply an itching sensation.

We have wonderful testimonials from some of our panelists that can be viewed here. If you have additional questions please contact our recruitment team at 973-577-9203.

What types of products are being tested?

Over-the-counter personal care, sunscreen, lotion, shampoo, diaper products, etc.
