ETO Testing

Ethylene Oxide (ETO) is a toxic compound that is used to sterilise food items, spices, packaging materials, drugs & medical products. ETO is preferred by food processors for its ability to drastically reduce microbial load, while ensuring minimal organoleptic changes in the food products. Exposure to ETO residue can be hazardous & can cause severe health problems.

Vimta can help you analyse the ETO residues (sum of ethylene oxide and 2-chloro ethanol) in food products at an LOQ of 0.01 mg/kg, by GCMS.
