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?
Is the testing of a sample concentration into minimum detection ranges in the parts per million or less.
Uses an extensive range of state-of-the-art instrumentation.
Can be performed on a wide variety of products and materials.
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.
