Nitrosamines – laboratory analysis and determination of nitrites and of nitrates

Nitrosamines are formed by the nitrosation between nitrites or nitrates and amines or amides. The final molecule is the result of the addition of a nitroso radical and the formed compound is only stable with secondary amines.

Are you looking for a laboratory capable of analyzing and determining nitrites and nitrates in your process water ?

As part of your risk assessment process relating to the presence of nitrosamines in your products (medications, active ingredients, cosmetic or medicinal products…) it is crucial to carry out analyses for the determination of nitrite and nitrate content which could be the point of origin of the formation of nitronates.

To achieve this, FILAB laboratory has implemented and validated methods for analyzing and determination nitrites and nitrates in water samples using Ion Chromatography at very low concentrations (ppm and ppb).
