Metals digestion detection limits: How low can you go?
29 Jun 2021
With the rise in industrial products and processes, we have seen a dramatic increase in the amount of electronic waste in our landfills over the past few decades, and as a result, a significant upsurge in hazardous leachates and heavy metals accumulation in our environment, ecosystem, and food chain.
Heavy metals are not naturally biotransformed, so they continue to persist in our surroundings. Several safety and regulatory limits have been established to monitor and manage their presence in soil, water, food, and feed; and testing is used to substantiate environmental safety.
If you work in environmental testing, or utilize these services, you must be well aware of the challenges faced when conducting metals testing in environmental samples. Subpar and inconsistent processing can often lead to confusion, frustration, and delays to your important projects.
Antylia Scientific™ and Environmental Express® have established a range of inventive solutions for clean and safe metals digestion. This webinar will show how you can automate parts of your workflow, save time, and obtain accurate metals detection data by incorporating these tools into your workflow.
