In addition to the minerals and trace elements that are useful to our body, there are also some heavy metals that are potentially toxic and have legal limits in food.

These are:

At Modern Analytics we perform the detection of heavy metals by ICP-MS.

The determination of metals by ICP-MS is a relatively new analytical technique, which compared to classical methods (AAS, ICP-OES) offers the following advantages:

a. Multi-element analysis for all elements of the periodic table (except halogens and gases)

b. Extremely low detection and quantification limits (in most metals, the detection limit is from 2 to 50 ng/l)

c. Faster analysis speed and better result accuracy.
