Some classes of compounds are unsuitable for closed vessel microwave digestion as they are highly reactive with nitric acid and other oxidizers which may become nitrated and potentially explosive. These include animal fat (lard), glycerin and glycols, volatile flavoring agents, filter paper, packaging material, and alcoholic beverages.

Limit of Quantitation:
1 – 3 mg/100g
The limit of quantitation (LOQ) is dependent on the individual metal.
Please contact us to review metal technical datasheets for the exact LOQ.
Sample Size Requirements:
- 15 grams for solid samples
- 20 grams (20 mL) for liquid samples
Inductively Coupled Plasma – Optical Emission Spectroscopy (ICP – OES)
7-9 business days
Is rush testing available?
The samples are prepared by microwave closed vessel digestion with nitric acid. Solutions are infused into an ICP OES and quantified based on an external standard calibration curve.
Information Required by Submitter:
Please include estimates if available. For vitamin mixes, please include vitamin estimates as well.
