Strip characters from a text input that is comma separated

I have two labels that I need to compare. We want to make sure the manufacturing part number on our internal label matches the manufacturing part number provided by the manufacturer. Our QR code on our internal label doesn't just contain the manufacturer part number which is my issue. It contains 8 pieces of information all comma separated. I know that what i'm looking for is always going to be after the 4th comma in the string. Is there a way to extract that info so I can do a comparison of that to the label provided by the manufacturer??
