What is Trace Analysis?



Do you have a product or raw material that you must determine if a particular element is present even in the most miniscule amounts?   Do you have a good understanding of what trace analysis is?  Do you need to identify a contract analytical testing laboratory to perform trace analysis testing for you?

More information about Galbraith Laboratory Trace analysis:

There are two main types of trace analysis tests:

Trace Metals Analysis – Important to ensure product safety. Pharmaceutical and consumer products may require trace metals analysis testing to determine the amount of trace metals present.  Metals present in a sample can cause material degradation and could pose a health danger in ingestible products.

Trace Organic Analysis – Pharmaceuticals and consumer products may also require trace organic analysis because trace organic compounds can alter a product’s toxicity and efficacy.
