Laboratory analysis of NDMA

Do you want to analyze and measure NDMA (CAS: 62-75-9) in your product?

NDMA (N-nitrosodimethylamine) is a molecule belonging to the nitrosamine family.

In the form of a yellow, oily liquid with an indistinct odor, NDMA is sensitive to degradation by photolysis caused by ultraviolet rays. 

Widespread molecules present in many natural or synthetic products, nitrosamines are found in a number of industrial products, particularly in the food industry (as additives), the plastics industry, cosmetics or even certain drugs (solvents).

NDMA, a chemical compound classified as a hazardous substance

NDMA, like all nitrosamines, has been classified as a hazardous and potentially carcinogenic substance for humans by the IARC and the WHO.

Nitrosamines are also monitored by the ANSM (Agence nationale de sécurité du médicament et des produits de santé), which conducts further studies on the risks associated with the presence of nitrosamines in medicines.

The decree of October 2, 1997 limits the use of certain forms of nitrosamines, including NDMA, by indicating the tolerated residual quantity and, in certain cases, the indicative dose of incorporation.

FILAB, laboratory for the analysis and determination of NDMA in industrial products

To support manufacturers in the development and quality control of their products, in line with regulatory developments, the laboratory provides state-of-the-art analytical equipment, enabling NDMA and its precursors to be determined at trace levels in all types of matrix (food, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, polymer, water, etc.).

Analyses are carried out using LC-MSMS and other techniques.

NDMA detection limits vary from 1 to 10µk/kg (ppb) depending on the type of matrix.

FILAB can also develop specific methods or validate methods (ICH Q2) on your matrices.
