Trace Metals Analysis

Applied Technical Services’ trace metal analysis services detect, identify, and quantify the presence of metal contaminants in samples. Trace metals can negatively impact a product’s toxicity, quality, and safety, so manufacturers rely on analysis services to abide by legislation and regulations governing the presence of trace metals.

Why is Trace Metal Analysis Important?

Trace metals are essential to human, animal, and plant life at low concentrations but may become toxic at higher concentrations. These naturally occurring elements are present in various ingredients and materials and can impact the product or consumer if left untested. Consumer safety and environmental agencies regulate the presence of trace metals and require that manufacturers abide by the regulations to reduce the risk of harm to the public.
Trace metal analysis is standard in various industries, including:
