We evaluated the bioavailability of Cd in 86 components of 57 jewelry items found to contain high levels of Cd (> 10,000 ppm) by X-ray fluorescence (XRF), using extractions that simulate mouthing or swallowing of jewelry items. We screened jewelry...


Detecting heavy metals in food and beverages

Testing for heavy metals in food and beverages? You understand that prolonged trace exposure to heavy metals such as arsenic (As), cadmium (Cd), chromium (Cr), lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), and thallium (Tl), via the food, beverages and drinking water we consume can cause serious health risks. Fortunately, increasingly sensitive tests are in place to ensure our food is safe. Discover the recent advances in analytical technologies for heavy metal detection and the products, services and technical support available to help you keep us all safe. Because we all want to trust what we eat.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
