What are the important factors to consider when buying a bed or car battery? Our independent laboratory tests help consumers to make the right decisions and manufacturers to become better producers – whatever the product.
Testfakta conducts many different types of product test in a laboratory environment, all of which are characterised by relevant facts, transparent methods and consumer guidance.
Padel balls are consumables and according to the manufacturers, you should replace the balls after two to three matches. Testfakta's tests of ten well-known brands show that several of the balls lose pressure much earlier than that, and there are also major differences in bounce and speed between different brands.
Testfaktas laboratory test of feta cheese consisted of analysis of sensory properties, nutritional content, and DNA, as well as testing for bacteria and antibiotics. The test’s purpose is to highlight authentic, high-quality feta cheese products.
Beds & mattresses
Our fifty-step process for testing beds and mattresses is arguably the world's most comprehensive bed test protocol.
Brush head replacements
How well do the copies compare to the original from Oral-B? Testfakta Research has tested and compared ten compatible brush heads on the Nordic market. All are more or less identical in appearance, but the test shows big differences in quality, feel and performance.
Testfakta works with about 40 of Europe’s leading testing and research laboratories. The test methods are developed continuously in order to keep up with market developments. The results are analysed, assessed and compiled in consultation with the laboratories and external specialists.
Testfakta’s quality labels communicate the quality, performance and characteristics of the product in a credible way.

A third-party validation for beds and mattresses, confirming high quality and good ergonomics for three different body types. The verification is particularly suitable for verification of a product range, private labels or new challenger brands.
The purpose of a Testfakta bio-based certification is to show the product or packaging’s content of renewable material. The certification scheme is a collaboration with state-owned RISE (Research Institutes of Sweden) and follows current EU recommendations for calculation and communication of bio-based content.
Credibility, transparency and independence are core values that sum up Testfakta’s operation. This is what consumers, producers and business partners have to say about Testfakta.
Being able to stamp and market our private label products with Testfakta’s quality label has real value. This has been welcomed by customers, who are keen to look at the documentation which is used widely by our sales staff. The label provides all parties with a sense of reassurance.

It can be really tough to communicate quality in an advertising context. To be successful in the long term, you need reliable evidence to support your message. The win in the wear test published by Testfakta in 2012 gave us that evidence.

We usually work with our customers in secrecy, but the reverse is true with Testfakta’s assignments; instead it’s a case of openness and transparency.
