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.

The same is true for pet animals, and so it is equally important that levels of toxic metals in pet foods are also monitored to ensure safe levels are not exceeded.

Fapas quality control materials are an ideal tool to mitigate potential bias within your current testing practises. This could be through ongoing staff training exercises. We make use of real food matrices to ensure the results of your ongoing quality assurance activities are immediately comparable to your real life testing practises. From this insight your ability to maintain your testing standards is improved.
