THE PLACENTA LAB
NSF CERTIFIED EQUIPMENT | LAB GRADE QUALITY
Since opening our doors for the first time in 2017 we have strived to be a pioneer in the placenta encapsulation industry by consistently raising the standards rather than stay stagnate with outdated safety protocols and procedures in an unregulated industry. Placenta Encapsulation is traditionally performed in residential settings such as kitchens either the clients or the specialists home.
Lancaster Placenta Co. offers a safer option in our placenta lab.
Stainless Steel Equipment: While not required by law or within our own certifying body, Lancaster Placenta Co. goes above and beyond by using stainless steel workstation tables certified by the National Safety Foundation (NSF Certified) in our placenta lab. Stainless steel is used in the healthcare field because it's a non-porous surface that will not allow bacteria to seep into the surface and allow it to proliferate and cause disease.
Commercial Dehydrators: Stainless steel commercial dehydrators ensure each placenta is dehydrated properly at the proper temperature while heat is evenly distributed for the duration of drying time. This ensures the placenta is heated quickly and efficiently to prohibit bacteria from developing.
Pharmaceutical Lab Grade Capsule Machines: Our lab utilizes real pharmaceutical grade capsule machines that provides a quality never seen before in the placenta encapsulation industry. Rather than using cheap plastic capsule machines, our capsule machines are heavy duty stainless steel ensuring the utmost safety and performance.
