Although controlling trace/heavy metals and elemental impurities has always been a critical issue for many industries, stricter limits and procedures are now in place by regulators and compendia. For over 30 years Quantum Analytics Group has been supporting the testing of all types of materials and products for trace and heavy metals. Our very knowledgeable scientists have many years of experience employing flame and graphite furnace atomic absorption, ICP-OES and ICP-MS in solving issues with trace and heavy metals. Quantum has been called upon by manufacturers to assess the presence of heavy/trace metal and elemental impurities in consumer products, electronics, API, drug product, medical device, biological tissue, raw materials, chemicals, cosmetic products, foods and more.

Our laboratories are equipped with state of the art instrumentation which provide both the capabilities and flexibility in meeting the challenges that varying matrices present in the quantitative analysis of trace metals and elemental impurities. Where no methods exist our scientists can develop analytical methods that are robust, transferable, reproducible, and designed to support and meet regulatory requirements and submissions.

Our approach is to work closely with each client collaboratively, handling every project with personal care, and giving every client one-on-one attention. Then, through this collaborative approach, and our unique blend of experience and expertise, we focus on producing reliable, accurate data and results to address and resolve question with trace and heavy metals that impact your products.
