Trace analysis of lead in wheat noodles
This datasheet investigates the capabilities of the Epsilon 3XLE, a benchstop energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometer as a tool for analyzing lead in wheat noodles. The simple sample preparation along with quick measurements of elements, make the XRF technique an interesting analytical method for the food industry. It allows analysis close to production lines.
The Codex Alimentarius requires a maximum level of lead to be less than 0.2 mg/kg in cereal grains (Codex Standard 193-1995).Download application note
