Analysis of heavy metals in your packaging

You wish to carry out analyses of heavy metals in your packaging

Why test your packaging for heavy metals?

First of all, although some are essential to industry (lead, chromium, etc.), other heavy metals have a particular toxicological profile (mercury, titanium, etc.). Thus, their use is highly regulated in industrial sectors such as food, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.

From this point of view, industrial companies must integrate the control and analysis of the content and presence of heavy metals in their finished products and raw materials.

Packaging is a possible source of heavy metals. It is therefore necessary to analyse them in order to optimise them so that they are not a source of undesirable heavy metals in the products they contain: cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, food, etc.

Consequently, the support of a competent laboratory in the analysis of heavy metals is essential in the context of quality control or the marketing of a cosmetic, pharmaceutical or food product.
