Event Overview:

In the last few decades, food quality and safety has become a major topic of public interest. Stringent legislation setting maximum levels of contaminants in foodstuffs has been introduced. Particularly, heavy metals are strictly regulated: Maximum levels of lead, cadmium, inorganic tin and total mercury in food have been defined worldwide. Inductively coupled plasma–optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES) is a potent technique for the analysis of foodstuffs as it combines the possibility to analyze trace elements as well as major and minor compounds required for quality control. In this webinar, we will be showing how food analysis can be conducted using modern ICP-OES instrument. We will discuss appropriate sample preparation as well as figures of merit.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Selecting the correct ICP-OES analyzer for ultimate productivity
  • New advances in plasma viewing and optical design
  • How ICP-OES can measure heavy metals in foodstuffs along with other elements
