In Empiria Labs we specialize in the application of high-resolution technology to determine toxic components in food processing at all stages of production. We use only validated methods and procedures for chemistry testing including FDA, USDA, AOAC, USP and other validated protocols developed by customers or Empiria’s “in-house” methods. Most of our procedures include accelerated solid extraction (ASE-350), QuEChERS extraction, solid phase extraction (SPE) previous to its analysis by a specific analytical technique. Our food chemistry testing includes:
Multi-residual pesticides by GC/MSMS and LC/MSMS
Dithiocarbamates by LC/MSMS
Mycotoxins-Aflatoxins by LC/MSMS
Trace Metals (Hg, As, Pb, Cd + 24 additional metals) by ICP/MS or ICP/OES
Methyl mercury by GC/MSMS
Persistent Organic Pollutants as established in the Stockholm Convention:
Polychlorinated Dibenzo(p)dioxins (PCDD)
Polychlorinated Dibenzofurans (PCDF)
Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCB)
Organochlorinated Pesticides ( Aldrin, Chlordane, DDT, Dieldrin, Endrin, Heptachlor, Mirex, Hexachlorobenzene (HCB), Toxaphene
Recently, the above list has been updated to include the following:
Hexa + Heptabromodiphenylether
Perfluorooctane sulfonic acid
Tetra + Pentabromodiphenylether
ABOUT EMPIRIA LABS
We are a full-equipped laboratory with world-class facilities and the state-of-the-art instrumentation for organic trace compounds as Dioxins, PCBs, PAHs and other persistant organic pollutants in water, soil/sediment, air, vegetable, food products.
We use a dedicated instrumentation to certify medical cannabis for cannabinoid profile and potency, terpenes, solvent residue, pesticides, mycotoxins, heavy metals, foreign material, water activity and humidity.
