Heavy Metals Analysis

Most heavy metals are present in the environment as a result of industrial processes and find their way into the food supply chain. These exhibit varying degrees of toxicity, hence it is important to ensure that their concentration does not exceed the maximum permitted limits. It is also important to ensure that they are analysed with great specificity even at very low concentrations.

VIMTA offers comprehensive analytical testing services for following trace minerals and metals.
