Metals and metal species can enter the human food chain through direct contamination of a product or through the environment in which a plant is grown or animals for consumption are raised.
The Thermo Scientific iCE 3000 Series of AAs offer the simplest and most affordable technique covering a broad range of metallic elements at ppm (parts per million) levels with flame atomization and at ppb (parts per billion) level with furnace atomization or vapor generation.
The Thermo Scientific iCAP 6000 Series ICP spectrometers offer performance, sensitivity, and speed of analysis for measuring up to 73 elements in complex matrices.
The Thermo Scientific ICP-MS range offers the greatest analysis capability with the lowest detection limits and covers most of the periodic table. With the Thermo Scientific XERIES 2 and the Thermo Scientific GC and HPLC coupling kits, a number of toxic species can be monitored at extremely low levels in a range of matrices.
Thermo Scientific Aquakem and Arena automated photometers enable analysis of multiple chemistries simultaneously from a single test tube. With Aquakem, wastewater, or potable water can be easily monitored for hazardous traces of e.g. Chromium (VI), cyanide, thiocyanate, nitrate and nitrite.
