Contamination can prove detrimental to product quality and process efficiency, and may also pose serious public health or environmental safety concerns. Therefore, the levels of hazardous elements in electronic goods and consumer products are limited by health & safety regulations. Contaminants or foreign particles come from a wide range of sources, including corroded or damaged equipment parts, catalysts, cross-contamination of a process, packaging or even from biological origin.

Contaminant detection, enumeration and in some cases contaminant identification, enable process issues to be pinpointed and help assure product safety and quality. Malvern Panalytical provides solutions for contaminant analysis which help you understand and monitor both your processes and products – these are used across a range of industries, including forensic science, water treatmentadditive manufacturingpharmaceuticals and biopharmaceuticals, building materials, food and drinks, fuels and fine chemicals.
