Arsenic standard may be used as a reference standard in high performance liquid chromatography inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (HPLC-ICP-MS) for the quantification of total arsenic concentration in seafood. It has been used as a certified reference material in the quantification of the analyte in raw materials and oil samples of bigeye tuna using inductively coupled plasma technique combined with optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES).

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.
