Application Brief

Multi-Element Analysis of Seafood by ICP-OES with Twin Interface Plasma Observation

Regulations featuring ever-more-stringent maximums for levels of contaminants in foodstuffs continue to be issued in many areas around the globe. For instance, European Union law sets strict limits on the levels of heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, inorganic tin, and total mercury in food.

Driven by this legislation, food producers and inspectors require better analytical techniques and lower detection limits for these elements of interest. The report demonstrates the capabilities of the SPECTROBLUE spectrometer with twin interface plasma observation. This enables both automatic axial and radial observation with every measurement. Results include limits of detection well below the target levels required for accurate multi-element analysis of major and trace concentrations in seafood.
