Trace metal analysis

Trace metal analysis services from Campden BRI

Many trace metals occur naturally in foods and some can occur as contaminants. Whilst some are nutrients, others at high enough levels, are toxic. In many cases there are legislative limits on the specific trace metal content of food commodities.

Rapid and reliable analysis of products for metals is essential in ensuring legislative compliance, demonstrating due diligence and troubleshooting problems that arise.

The latest, quickest and most reliable technology for trace metal analysis is ICP–MS (inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry). We use this state–of–the–art equipment and our expertise to deliver reliable results rapidly.

Examples of foods and drinks we analyse:

  • Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages
  • Fruits and vegetables – fresh, frozen and canned
  • Herbs and spices
  • Fresh and canned meat, poultry and fish
