Trace Element Testing

Trace Elements are those salt ingredients found in cell culture products, which are in trace levels, generally in ug/L or ug/kg amounts. The source of the trace element ingredients are either by formulation addition or as unintended impurities inherent in the cell culture supply chain.

We can do the testing to ensure that you are aware of certain trace element levels in your cell culture products. Access to this data provides greater insight into your process to help you manage trace element variability.

Contact your sales representative to discuss these two options for trace element testing:

  1. Finished Product Testing; an analytical service designed to measure and report the level of ten cell culture relevant trace elements. This quantitative testing is available for both liquid and dry powder cell culture products. Results are reported on the product certificate of analysis.
  2. Customer Collaboration Project; we have the technical expertise within our Raw Material Characterization team to investigate and recommend possible solutions to manage the variability and impact of these unintended sources, noting changes to the prevailing supply chain may not be possible.
