Intertek’s chemical testing and analysis services includes trace analysis, metals testing, contamination detection and identification of unknown substances
Chemical testing and analysis is vital for regulatory compliance and to understand the quality and composition of chemical substances and materials that are used in products, industrial processes and manufacturing. Specialist industry knowledge, and expertise in applying the most relevant methodology are the keys to successful chemical testing. Advanced analytical instrumentation or a combination of techniques is necessary to solve problems or determine composition.
Intertek’s global network of chemistry laboratories is equipped with a wide range of techniques and instrumentation to meet any chemical analysis challenge or requirement. We provide advanced research and testing expertise, and test to ISO 17025, Good Laboratory Practice (GLP), Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) and other recognised industry standards. We perform testing protocols according to standard methodologies (ISO, EN, BS, ASTM, DIN, etc.) and are experts in developing tailored analytical methods and performing method validation for specific testing applications.
We have over 20 years of chemical testing and analysis experience, and Intertek can serve virtually any industry sector from automotive and agrichemical to pharmaceutical and consumer products.
Chemical Composition Analysis
Our chemical composition analysis utilizes a combination of techniques that can cover a wide range of applications, and which determine chemical quality, identity, composition and impurities, with molecular structure elucidation and chemical structure confirmation provided by state of the art expertise.
Chemical Trace Analysis
Chemical trace analysis is often complex. Our trace chemical testing services include trace metals analysis and organic compounds with detection down to trace and ultra-trace ranges, even for complex sample matrices. Chemical residues testing includes analysis, detection and identification of residues and this expertise is regularly deployed to solve industry problems.
Regulatory Compliance Testing
A wide range of chemical analysis capabilities is available to ensure that products are compliant with regulations such as REACH and other global chemical notification requirements and ROHS. For some industries such as agrichemical or pesticides or pharmaceuticals, our laboratories can perform analysis under specific regulatory and quality guidelines such as Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) or Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP).
Contamination Detection and Analysis
Resolving chemical contamination requires a rapid response. Intertek uses advanced laboratory instrumentation to quickly identify and troubleshoot contamination issues.
Materials Testing and Analysis
Backed by years of industry experience, we provide expert testing for a diverse range of materials including but not limited to polymers, plastics, metals, ceramics and paper.
Chemical analysis of metal alloys
Our experts use a variety of techniques, from semi-quantitative to fully quantitative methods, to identify and quantify the elemental composition of a metal alloy. Our chemical analysis of metals is used for manufacturing quality control, reverse engineering and failure investigations.
Using a wide range of elemental analysis techniques, our scientists can identify and quantify the elemental composition of chemical samples and compounds. Sample types include organic and inorganic analysis, aqueous and non-aqueous materials.
By partnering with Intertek, our world-class laboratories and scientists can support your unique chemical testing and analysis requirements, and help you to comply with regulatory and safety requirements.
