Heavy metals are harmful to health, it is therefore mandatory to test their levels in foodstuffs and confirm their compliance with the regulations in force.
The main heavy metals analysed are:

  • – Arsenic
  • – Cadmium
  • – Tin
  • – Mercury
  • – Lead
  • – ……

 

Thanks to performing analytical techniques (ICP-OES, ICP-MS…) CARSO can meet your requirements and achieve very low detection limits.

 

However, the toxicity of some heavy metals may depend on their chemical form. CARSO is also able to analyse the different chemical forms of the involved metals should the case arise:

  • – Arsenic III
  • – Arsenic V

 

All these services are available for the whole range of human and animal nutrition.
