Event Overview:

Safe consumption of dietary supplements in pill, gel capsule, powder—or any of the other forms available—is increasingly important in this growing market. Heavy metals analysis based on USP 232/233 or similar monograph ensures safety of consumers, but it must also be done in a rapid, easy fashion. Tune in to learn how to perform rapid, simple digests of these samples and complete analysis for As, Cd, Pb, and Hg, among other heavy metals.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Learn tips and tricks for digesting various dietary supplements
  • Discover how to better digest and analyze different sample matrices
  • Learn how to handle rush samples, high throughput samples, and maximize lab productivity

Who Should Attend:

  • Metals analysis lab managers, chemists, and technicians involved in trace metals testing
  • Lab managers and lab technicians looking to optimize heavy metals analysis of nutraceuticals and dietary supplements
  • Lab directors and commercial lab managers looking to maximize lab productivity
