XRF and XRD for elemental and phase analysis
The need for chemical analysis of food and cosmetics has increased in recent years. Increased emphasis in industry, and by government, on safety, efficacy and content labeling are the core drivers. Near line monitoring during the production process also affords long-term cost savings from decreased waste, rework and materials costs. The United States (FDA), European Union and various other regulatory bodies around the world strictly regulate the allowable concentrations of heavy metal contaminants in foodstuffs, drugs and cosmetics. In addition, much commercial food production requires careful monitoring of salt concentrations to ensure correct flavor characteristics. Cosmetics that use metal oxides for sunscreen protection factor (SPF) enhancement must have 100% quality inspection to meet U.S. over-the counter (OTC) pharmaceutical regulations. Packaging must also be monitored for contaminates that may leach into products.
