P S Analytical – Experience, Performance, Reliability and Support Food Safety – Choose your Poison!

Feb 09 2018 Read 1099 Times

P S Analytical (PSA) provides niche analytical instruments for the determination of mercury, arsenic, selenium, antimony and bismuth in food and beverage samples.

The presence of these toxic metals in their various forms is of real concern to those administrating food safety programs and to all food processors and manufacturers of food and feed products. Increasingly the determination of both total and speciated chemical forms is required to assess product quality and this requirement generates further analytical challenges of sensitivity, selectivity and freedom from interferences.

In addition to analytical considerations, operational issues such as ease of use, reliability and robustness as well as very affordable running costs are all important and are recognised hallmarks of the PSA brand.

Coupling Atomic Fluorescence Spectroscopy (AFS) with either cold vapour generation or hydride generation has been PSA’s core competency for over 30 years. With the addition of analyte separation capability which allows for speciation studies, PSA offers powerful tools to help with these endeavours.

The separation of methylmercury from inorganic mercury in water, shellfish, seaweed, dairy products, vegetables and grains; the determination of inorganic arsenic as well as organoarsenic species in water, rice and seaweed are examples of routine applications developed for this growing area of concern.

P S Analytical’s team of experts is constantly developing new methods and applications to address market concerns and so if you have a sample you are interested to know more about, we would love to hear from you.

With literally thousands of systems in the field today, and support networks in Europe, USA and SE Asia, PSA offers the ideal package of performance, reliability and support. For further information visit our website at www.psanalytical.com.
