Test Description

The presence of metals in food is of particular concern due to their toxicity. These naturally occurring chemicals can occur as residues in food by a range of mechanisms such as their natural presence in the environment or contamination during food processing and storage. Their accumulation in the body can lead to harmful effects over time and their presence in foodstuffs is strictly regulated.

Within this quality control material the heavy metals Arsenic, Cadmium, Chromium, Lead, Mercury are addressed. This challenges your laboratory to highlight any unsafe levels of these contaminants within food supplements using a screening test. This is directly comparable to your routine analysis arrangement and as such results can be used to quickly inform any quality control decisions that may need to be made.

Fapas quality control materials make use of real food test materials from which to ensure only effective, relevant areas of improvement are highlighted and tracked within your ongoing quality assurance activities. Fapas quality control materials should be used in conjunction with ongoing proficiency testing activities, to ensure your testing ability meets international testing standards.
