Metals in food contact materials

This course deals with the analysis and evaluation of the release of metals from food contact articles. In addition to theoretical knowledge and analytical expertise, the laboratory training also covers in detail the legal principles and quality requirements of an accredited laboratory.

Content

Each participant performs all relevant procedures on real samples under professional supervision in a laboratory for routine analyses. Migrates are prepared from various kitchen items, e.g. ceramic, glass, enamel or metal, using food simulants under defined time/temperature conditions, which are then analyzed for their metal concentration using ICP techniques. The concentrations in the migrates are then converted to the samples and the results obtained are finally evaluated from a legal and toxicological point of view.

 

Target audience

  • Analysts

  • Laboratory managers

  • Users from the field of food contact materials with knowledge in analytical chemistry and instrumental analysis
