We leverage our capabilities in inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) to detect trace metals at levels as low as parts per trillion. We have the capability to perform USP <232> and USP <233> testing, including heavy metals testing and testing on drug substances, excipients, drug products and dietary supplements.
For improved sample preparation, we use the UltraWAVE microwave digestion apparatus for hard-to-solubilize samples, as well as techniques such as aqua regia and hydrofluoric acid.
Our ICP-MS can detect and measure the following metals:
- Aluminum, arsenic, antimony
- Barium, bismuth
- Cadmium, cobalt, calcium, copper
- Germanium, gold
- Lead, lithium
- Magnesium, manganese, mercury, molybdenum
- Palladium, platinum
- Silver, sodium
- Tin, titanium, thallium
- Zinc, zirconium
