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
  • Indium
  • Iron
  • Lead, lithium
  • Magnesium, manganese, mercury, molybdenum
  • Nickel
  • Palladium, platinum
  • Potassium
  • Selenium
  • Silver, sodium
  • Tin, titanium, thallium
  • Yttrium
  • Zinc, zirconium
