Test Description

Heavy, toxic metals such as arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury are often found in food, either as a natural contaminant or a contaminant from production. Arsenic can be taken in directly from soil and into growing fruit during production. As such it is difficult to control the amount of Arsenic and other heavy metals in these foodstuffs. It is therefore important to show strong, accurate testing capabilities throughout a range of specific analytes in matrices such as grapefruit. Arsenic and other heavy metals can be found within manufacturing processes as well as in contaminated land. This can increase the risk of heavy metals within foodstuffs to consumers.

Reference materials can be used to both standardise your testing arrangement through instrument calibration and staff training activities. Reference materials are also a valuable asset for method verification due to the known uncertainty present within the material and accompanying data sheet.
