From the farm to the table, safe and nutritious food is a primary concern of everyone. The prevalence of contaminants and adulterated, counterfeit or fraudulent food has led to increased public awareness and government regulations throughout the industry.
To stay compliant with regulations, scientists look to simple, routine methods to deliver reliable, precise, accurate results. X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) is a powerful analytical tool for understanding the essential information about element concentrations of nutrients, minerals and toxic metals of interest in food and feed.
Learn how science-based XRF solutions provide rapid routine testing and in-depth research analysis for food and agriculture applications in the lab and the factory. Together, we’ll explore bench-top XRF solutions that offer multi-element analysis with off-the-shelf or customized methods, which provide actionable results at any stage of the food production process – from the presence of required elemental nutrients to threats from elemental and metal containments.
Example Applications Covered:
- QA/QC incoming material as well as in-process and finished products ensuring target nutrient content
- Heavy metal screening of incoming stock, in-process materials and finished products
- Examine fertilizer and treatment effectiveness
