About RSR Laboratories
Joseph A. Haun
Joseph Haun earned his Bachelors of Science in Forensic Chemistry from Youngstown State University. Joseph’s background consists of various forensic applications utilizing analytical chemistry, such as, forensic drug testing, arson investigation, analyzing for controlled substances, and crime scene analysis.
Joseph began his career at OMEGA laboratories, the leader in forensic hair testing, where he gained experience in qualitative ELISA testing followed with confirmatory GCMS work in compliance with ISO/IEC 17025 standards. Following this, his time was spent as a research assistant at his alma mater. During this time Joseph first became published for his work on The Effects of Liquid Latex as an Absorbent on Human DNA. He also assisted in developing the use of liquid latex for soot removal from fire scenes and attempted fingerprint development with Ninhydrin.
Joseph was first introduced to working with cannabis as a forensic chemist I working with controlled substances for NMS Labs. At this time, Joseph gained valuable experience in QAQC practices, uncertainty of measurement, traceability, and data analysis that has applied to his role as the quality manager here at RSR. While at NMS Labs, Joseph also gained a specialization in analytical GCMS testing producing results dependable in court. Since then Joseph has joined the team at RSR to assist in performing state required marijuana compliance testing while helping develop the quality management system used to ensure compliance with ISO/IEC 17025.
Haifei received her M.S. in Environmental Marine Science from Stony Brook University and her B.S in Chemistry from East China Normal University. She has over fifteen years analytical chemistry work experience in a fortune 500 pharmaceutical company, a premier contract testing lab, dietary supplement manufacturer and the national laboratory. Her expertise lies in not only the mastering the full range of analytical instruments and technologies, but also has accumulated knowledge in compliance with GMPs, FDA/USP and EPA regulatory guidelines.
Haifei started her career as analytical chemist for Shanghai Environmental Protection Bureau, where she developed knowledge in the operation and maintenance of HPLC, GC, GC/MS. Then she attended the graduate school at Stony Brook University to further her study. Her research interest was to investigate the distribution sources and fate of alkylphenol ethoxylate metabolites (APEOs) in Hudson River Basin. She is also the co-author of the report of Hudson River Foundation.
After graduation, she worked at a local environmental testing lab as GC/MS chemist to analyze the volatile organic compounds in various water samples. Three years later, she joined Actavis (now Allergan) in south Florida as Research Scientist. While there, she developed and conducted the HPLC, GC testing method for the impurity, assay, dissolution and residual solvents on various pharmaceutical products. In addition, she drafted and executed HPLC and GC method validation protocols, provided strong analytical support to formulators in product development and coordinated with regulatory department for ANDA submission and in response to FDA deficiency letters. Based on her previous work experience, she succeeded in implementing the quality control system in the routine lab operation.
