Trace metal analysis services from Camden BRI

Trace metal analysis

Trace metal analysis – that is, the detection of metals or their compounds at very low levels – is often carried out by ICP–MS (inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry), the latest, quickest and most reliable approach. Many trace metals occur naturally in foods, and are nutrients; others can occur as contaminants. Some, at high enough levels, can be toxic. We offer trace metal analysis in food, drink and raw materials and ingredients as a service.


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. We use our state-of-the-art ICP-MS equipment and our expertise to deliver reliable results rapidly.
