The efficient production of these nutritionally fortified breakfast cereals requires careful formulation and uniformity batch to batch. Ongoing analytical measurement of nutritional additives and the total micronutrient content in the cereal is one way in which food producers can quantify the quality and consistency of their cereal products. The ability to quickly, accurately, and easily analyze their samples is also key to timely data reporting, allowing real-time batch adjustments to be made and enhancing continuous process control. Food producers must also meet nutritional labeling guidelines which require an accurate assessment of micronutrients for regulatory labeling compliance.

A major challenge in the analysis of food samples is the extremely low analyte levels and the very high matrix levels. For many years, graphite furnace atomic absorption spectroscopy (GFAAS) has been a reliable technique and the preferred method for this analysis, especially for the determination of Cd and Pb. This work will focus on the use of GFAAS for the determination of lead and cadmium in a variety of food samples.
To protect the integrity of semiconductor and electronics end-products, semiconductor researchers and developers (R&D) and manufacturing QA/QC functions face unique challenges to reduce contaminates, sometimes down to ultra-trace levels. Metal determination in the sub-ppb range are required for the analysis of complex sample matrices and corrosive acids.
To meet these requirements, high-performance analytical techniques such as inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) are preferred for rapid multi-element analysis, however, diagnosing problems can also involve only a few elements, in which graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry (GFAAS) is recommended.
Learn how GFAAS can help diagnose problems in semiconductor R&D and QA/QC processes.
Thallium is considered one of the most toxic heavy metals and a cumulative poison that can cause adverse health effects and degenerative changes in many organs. The main threat to humans is through occupational exposure and environmental contamination.
Industry’s use of thallium is widespread, and leaching from ore processing operations is the major source of elevated thallium concentrations in water. Due to thallium’s potential to cause adverse health effects in exposed people, a number of regulations and guidelines have been established by agencies around the world.
Graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry (GFAAS) has proven to be a well-established testing technique but is challenged with meeting the low detection limit requirements of the regulations by direct analysis, so the pre-concentration procedure is often needed. In this work, a PerkinElmer PinAAcle® 900H GFAA spectrometer combined with Syngistix™ for AA software were used to develop an accurate and reliable sample enrichment method for the determination of ultra-trace level thallium in water.
This work demonstrates the ability to measure several elements in beer with Flame atomic absorption using the PinAAcle 900. No significant differences were observed between beers in glass bottles or metal cans.
Toxic elements, such as lead (Pb) and cadmium (Cd), are entering the food chain through environmental contamination. Rice, as the most widely consumed cereal grain in Asia, can quickly pick up Pb and Cd from soil, thereby seriously endangering human health through diet. These toxic element levels need to be carefully monitored. Maximum levels of Pb and Cd are strictly regulated in Asian countries, especially in China; therefore, it is extremely important to develop a simple, reliable method for trace levels of Pb and Cd in rice. The allowable maximum levels of Pb and Cd in grains in EU and China are required to be below 0.2 mg/kg (Commission Regulation EC 1881/2006 and Chinese GB 2715-2016 Hygienic Standard). Graphite furnace atomic absorption spectroscopy (GFAAS) is the officially recommended technique for detection of trace elements in various food stuffs (GB/T 5009.15-2017, GB/T 5009. 12-2017 and EN 14083:2003). Food samples are usually pretreated before GFAAS analysis using various methods: microwave digestion, hot block digestion, dry ashing, and hot plate digestion. These conventional digestion procedures are usually complicated and time-consuming (2-4 hours or longer). Plus, they require large quantities of corrosive and oxidizing reagents, increasing the chance for contamination which could lead to inaccurate results. However, fast digestion can effectively speed up the sample preparation procedure while reducing the use of corrosive reagents and the chance for contamination.
There is an increasing need to monitor the essential element levels in food samples at ever decreasing concentrations. For this purpose, very sensitive, yet rapid and inexpensive methods are necessary. The quantification of trace metals in food samples has routinely been carried out by ICP-OES, ICP-MS, graphite furnace atomic absorption (GFAA) and flame atomic absorption (FAA). Compared with other techniques, FAA has the characteristics of good precision and simplicity with lower cost and minimum operator proficiency.
The heavy metal contamination of soil is one of the most widespread and severe environmental problems. This pollution not only decreases crop production, but also affects the health of people consuming the resulting food. With the increased knowledge about the impact of heavy metals from food on human health, the quality of soil resources has attracted considerable attention and concern.
Because they do not degrade and are toxic, heavy metals accumulate in the human body, leading to various serious diseases, including cancer. Cadmium (Cd), lead (Pb) and chromium (Cr) are commonly regarded as extremely toxic elements since they are harmful to humans, even at low concentrations. Zinc (Zn), nickel (Ni) and copper (Cu) are essential metals for plants at trace concentrations but are toxic if present at higher concentrations. Therefore, routine monitoring of these six metals in soil is vitally important to protect the quality and safety of food.
This work describes the analysis Cd, Cr, Cu, Pb, Ni, and Zn in soil using the PinAAcle 900H AA spectrometer, leveraging a rapid digestion procedure which uses less acid than conventional digestion methods.

There are many mineral dietary supplements available in today’s marketplace to ensure that mineral deficiencies do not occur in one’s diet. The mineral content of these products must be verified for quality control purposes.
Precise and accurate measurements at the regulated levels are an important factor for assuring safe drinking water. U.S. EPA Method 200.91 is the method cited by EPA, Health Canada, and the WHO for the use of graphite furnace atomic absorption spectroscopy (GFAAS). In evaluating a GFAAS system for determination of these elements, it must provide good sensitivity, low noise, limited drift, and accuracy in matrices with high salt content (hard water) that might be found in drinking waters. In this work, the PinAAcle™ 900T, with a unique optical system, is evaluated for the use of EPA Method 200.9 for As, Cd, Pb, Se, and Tl in drinking waters.

With instruments that are the industry standard worldwide, PerkinElmer accessories, consumables, methods and application support meet the most demanding requirements and are the preferred choice in thousands of laboratories globally.
Consumers are exposed to low levels of heavy metals on a daily basis and long term exposure can have negative health impacts. Since the elements themselves are distributed unevenly throughout, for example, cereal grain, with the germ and the outer layers having the highest concentrations, analyzing these grains to detect low analyte levels with accuracy and controlled reproducibility is a challenge.
The atomic absorption analysis technique provides a high performance option with features like a closed-furnace design that is sealed at both ends with easily removable bayonet-mount windows. In addition, independently controlled external and internal gas streams provide maximum flexibility, tube life, and sensitivity.
Systems like the PinAAcle™ 900 AA spectrometer make it faster and easier to get from sample to results by reducing your grain method development time, while PerkinElmer consumables and superior services will keep your lab at peak performance.
