Welcome to our laboratory, where we specialize in heavy metal analysis for biodegradation purposes. We understand the importance of ensuring the safety and environmental compatibility of biodegradable products, and our heavy metal analysis testing plays a crucial role in achieving that goal.

Biodegradable products are designed to break down naturally over time, but it is essential to ensure that they do not release harmful heavy metals into the environment during the degradation process by IS 3025 standard. Heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, mercury, and chromium can have detrimental effects on ecosystems and living organisms. They can be present in various materials used in manufacturing processes or found in products that come into contact with consumers. Heavy metal contamination can have serious consequences, including toxic effects, environmental pollution, and regulatory non-compliance. Therefore, it is crucial to ensure that products and materials are free from harmful levels of heavy metals.


With our advanced equipment and expertise, we accurately measure and quantify heavy metal content in bio-plastics, including but not limited to :

Aluminum, Arsenic, Boron, Barium, Beryllium, Bismuth, Gold, Gallium, Germanium, Palladium, Platinum, Mercury, Magnesium, Manganese, Molybdenum, Silver, Sulfur, Antimony, Selenium, Silicon, Calcium, Cadmium, Cerium, Cobalt, Chromium, Cesium, Copper, Iron, Lead, Lithium, Sodium, Nickel, Potassium, Phosphorus, Tin, Titanium and other metals and metal species.

Our heavy metal analysis test for biodegradation purposes involves the use of state-of-the-art equipment and precise methodologies. We follow internationally recognized testing protocols, such as ISO 3025, to accurately measure and quantify the presence of heavy metals in biodegradable products.

By conducting heavy metal analysis testing, we can assess the potential risks and determine the levels of heavy metal contamination in biodegradable materials. This information is vital for ensuring that these products meet regulatory requirements and do not pose a threat to the environment, wildlife, or human health. This is a very crucial step in Biodegradability Testing according to IS 17899T and Compostability Testing according to ISO 17088 and ASTM D6400 for products wanting to be declared as environment friendly.


At our laboratory, we have a team of experienced scientists and technicians who are well-versed in heavy metal analysis for biodegradation purposes. They have in-depth knowledge of the specific challenges and considerations involved in testing biodegradable materials for heavy metal content.

We take pride in our commitment to accuracy, reliability, and timely reporting. Our laboratory is equipped with advanced instruments, such as ICP-MS (Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry), which is a GOLD STANDARD in precise measurements of heavy metals. With our expertise and cutting-edge technology, we can provide you with reliable and comprehensive heavy metal analysis results.

This advanced technology allows us to deliver unparalleled accuracy and reliability in heavy metal analysis for a wide range of applications. By leveraging the capabilities of ICP-MS, we provide our customers with comprehensive and precise results, ensuring the safety and compliance of their products. ICP-MS is a cutting-edge analytical technique that combines two powerful technologies: Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) and Mass Spectrometry (MS). This synergistic combination enables the detection and quantification of trace elements and heavy metals in complex samples with exceptional sensitivity and precision. It offers unparalleled sensitivity, allowing for the detection of heavy metal concentrations at incredibly low levels, even down to parts per trillion (ppt) which helps the clients to make an informed decision, it covers wide elemental range with utmost precision.

We understand that different industries and clients have diverse testing requirements. That’s why our heavy metal testing services cater to a wide range of materials. Whether you need to test polymers, cotton, fabric, wood, liquids, chemicals or any other material, our experienced team is equipped to handle the analysis. We follow standardized testing protocols and adhere to strict quality control measures to ensure accurate and consistent results across different materials.
