Heavy Metal Test

Heavy Metal Test

The presence of heavy metals in chemicals used in the production of pharmaceuticals poses a major challenge. Heavy metal contamination can lead to adverse health effects and compromise the efficacy and safety of pharmaceuticals. Protheragen-ING Lab therefore offers comprehensive pharmaceutical heavy metal testing services to ensure the quality, safety, and compliance of pharmaceutical products. By utilizing state-of-the-art instrumentation and stringent quality control measures, we ensure that we provide our clients with reliable and trustworthy results that enable them to effectively mitigate risks.

Our specialized testing methods

Common heavy metals found in chemicals include lead, mercury, cadmium, and chromium. Concentrations of these elements that exceed safe limits can lead to poisoning and a range of health problems. Our heavy metal testing targets these specific heavy metals, providing vital information for risk assessment and ensuring compliance with safety regulations.

To overcome these limitations and provide more reliable and accurate results, we use advanced testing techniques recognized by pharmacopeias and other regulatory agencies that can quickly and accurately measure heavy metal levels in drug samples.

Our comprehensive range of test methods includes:

  • Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS)

AAS is a widely recognized technique for heavy metal analysis. It measures the absorption of light by atoms in a sample to determine the concentration of specific heavy metals. The method has excellent sensitivity and selectivity, allowing us to accurately quantify heavy metal levels.

  • Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS)

ICP-MS is a powerful analytical tool capable of detecting and quantifying multiple heavy metals simultaneously. By using an inductively coupled plasma to ionize the sample and measure the mass-to-charge ratio of the resulting ions, we can achieve excellent sensitivity and precision in heavy metal analysis.

  • Atomic Fluorescence Spectroscopy (AFS)

AFS is a sensitive technique that utilizes the fluorescence emitted by heavy metal atoms when excited by light at specific wavelengths. The method is highly selective and is particularly useful for the detection of mercury and arsenic.

Applicability of our testing services

Different types of chemicals may have different compositions and properties, but heavy metal contamination is a common concern for all types of pharmaceuticals. Therefore, our heavy metal testing methods are designed to have broad applicability to ensure accurate detection and monitoring of heavy metal levels in a wide range of chemicals.
