Yes it is a business but also a science based business. There are a lot of scientific studies out there that reputable companies foot the bill for that fall apart under the scrutiny of peers. That is why peer reviews are conducted - to ensure the methodology and science is sound. If this company is not utilizing peer reviews and there is not a single lab other lab out there that can verify or negate the results - How do you as a customer know they are even really testing for it?
Funny that you compare it to patents. Patents reveal all the information, it just prevents other companies from using it. So anyone wanting to know the method is valid can pull and read the patent even if they can't re-check the results with a different company.
