Trace Elements & Heavy Metals

Trace Elements & Heavy Metals

On occasion, overseas buyers of honey will express interest in knowing about concentrations of heavy metals in honey.

Most commonly lead (Pb) and Zinc (Zn) are requested, but our testing technology makes it possible for a larger suite of common heavy metals to be tested for only a small increase in total cost.

This test is able to analyse a wide range of minerals, trace elements and heavy metals, including aluminium, arsenic, copper, chromium, iron, mercury, lead and zinc in honey.

HOW DOES ANALYTICA CONDUCT THE TEST

A sub-sample of honey is taken; acid is added to the honey and it is heated. The samples are diluted and analysed by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS).
