Food Testing

Today’s average grocery store offers a wide variety of foods formulated specifically for various tastes and health benefits: added vitamins and protein, low-sugar, low-fat, high fiber, DHA, antioxidants, and more.

Commercial testing labs and in-house laboratories at food manufacturing companies have to run a variety of analyses to ensure food safety, proper formulation and the certification of final product for governmental regulations. CEM can help speed the process along with a variety of sample preparation and compositional testing systems that are fast, accurate, and reliable.

Mixed Food Sample Preparation for Trace Metals Analysis Webinar

Presented: December 13, 2012

Recent studies have shown that absorption of even low concentrations of some metals can have adverse effects on the human body. As a result, there is an increased need for more advanced analytical analyses and subsequent quality control of metal levels in food samples. Food manufacturers and contract laboratories are being required to analyze more samples and achieve lower detection limits than in the past, which is placing a great deal of strain on already busy laboratories.

CEM Analytical Product Manager Jason Keith discusses the microwave sample preparation of food for trace metals analysis, the methods and techniques involved in the microwave digestion of food, as well as the results of recoveries performed on representative samples.
