  • 玩具中の重金属分析

    玩具は安全でなければなりません。これは玩具中のヒ素、鉛、カドミウム、およびアンチモンの様な物質の最大許容値を定めたEU指令88/378/EWGに明確に記載されており、含有量は子供に害があると推定されるレベル以下でなければいけません。最近では、玩具から基準値を上回る重金属が検出された事例がメディアを賑わせているため、消費者の安全への関心も高まっています。そのため、玩具メーカーにとっては、信頼性のある品質管理によって製品の無害を立証することが重要な課題となっています。
  • How to minimize standard deviations by correct sample preparation

    Modern analytical methods increase precision and push detection limits to make even the smallest traces of sample components detectable. Despite this development sample preparation, which is carried out prior to the actual analysis, is frequently neglected. Errors caused by lacking accuracy in sample preparation have a much bigger impact than errors made during analysis. Just like an iceberg which is mostly hidden under water, only a small part of the sum of errors is perceived whereas the major part of potential errors is not taken into account (fig. 1). One of the reasons may be the fact that sampling and sample preparation have always been done in a traditional way which has become a routine over the years and is no longer considered as having a critical influence on the subsequent analyses.
  • The effect of grinding tools on metal contamination

    Reliable and accurate analysis results can only be guaranteed by reproducible sample preparation. This consists of transforming a laboratory sample into a representative part sample with homogeneous analytical fineness. Retsch offers a comprehensive range of the most modern mills and crushers for coarse, fine and ultra-fine size reduction of almost any material. The product range also comprises a wide choice of grinding tools and accessories which helps to ensure contamination-free preparation of a great variety of sample materials.
    The selection of the correct grinding tool depends on the sample material and the subsequent method of analysis. Different grinding tools have different characteristics, such as required energy input, hardness or wear-resistance.
