New method for determination of organometallic complexes

Our analytical laboratory has implemented new method for determination of organometallic complexes (i.e. alkyl mercury) by cation chromatography, coupled to ICP-MS detection. This group of substances is represented for example by Trimerosal, used as fungicide or fungistatic agent. Such a substances can be limited for example in vaccines or contact lens solutions.

Determination of crack bridging properties

Laboratory of building materials has introduced new test device for test according to EN 1062-7 for “Determination of crack bridging properties”. On this device also another tests of paints, varnishes, coating materials and coating systems can be performed, list of standards is attached in this note. contact: rmikac@itczlin.cz


Food contact materials - Mineral oils MOSH and MOAH determination in packaging:

With respect to the clients requests the new method was developed in ITC laboratories - Mineral oils MOSH and MOAH determination in packaging. Aromatic mineral oils (MOAH) are considered by EFSA as potentially carcinogenic and are given high attention now. Limit values for migration were published on a national basis by German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR). For further information you can contact Laboratory of Analytical Chemistry - fpuype@itczlin.cz; analyt@itczlin.cz
