Laboratory analysis of toxic trace residue

Your needs: to characterize any unknown trace residue found in your products and to ensure they comply with standards

Following the discovery of a non-compliant product or as part of a procedural improvement, industrialists can be required to carried out elemental analyses looking for trace residue in organic or inorganic matrices. 

Even in trace amounts, certain elements such as heavy metals (Lead, Mercury, Cadmium…) can pose a considerable health risk to consumers. Being subject to very stringent regulatory constraints, it is crucial to monitor their presence in all kinds of products.

Inspections looking for trace residue require precise tools, needing to be able to detect concentrations down to the ppm or even ppb range. Support from a specialized laboratory is will therefore allow you to quickly and precisely analyze your samples.

Our solution: to provide you with quick and reliable trace analysis services for any kind of matrix

As an independent laboratory situated in Dijon, France, FILAB have been active for 20 years supporting industrialists from all fields by providing trace element analysis and characterization services. Equipped with a diverse and cutting-edge analytical fleet (ICP, GC-MS, IC, SEM EDX…) FILAB can adapt its methods to fit any kind of matrix needing to be studied (Liquids, Solids, Powders…).

These are some of the services we are able to provide:

Our services

  • SEM-EDX trace element characterization on surfaces

  • Elemental analyses

  • Analysis of metallic impurities in pharmaceutical products (ICH Q3D)

  • Reverse engineering of finished products

  • Analysis and determination of heavy metal content using ICP-MS and ICP-AES in chemical matrices (Lead, Mercure, Cadmium, Chromium…)

  • Detection of elemental impurities (contaminations, pollutions, residue…)

  • Development of custom analytical methods

Ensuring a quick turnaround for your requests, FILAB is able to assist industrialists with regular or one-off inspections looking for trace residue. FILAB is also ISO accredited for many of these analyses for the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries and for environmental analyses.
