Recent food safety legislation has set new, even more stringent maximum levels of contaminants in foodstuffs, prompting food producers and inspectors to demand better analytical techniques and lower detection limits for the elements of interest.

A new application brief, "Multi-Element Analysis of Seafood by ICP-OES with Twin Interface Plasma Observation,” demonstrates the capabilities of the SPECTROBLUE ICP-OES spectrometer with twin interface plasma observation. The analyzer enables both automatic axial and radial observation with every measurement—providing limits of detection well below the target levels required for the accurate multi-element analysis of major and trace concentrations in seafood.
