Specific migration testing – non-intentionally added substances (NIAS), GC-MS

Analysis of non-intentionally added substances (NIAS), which are chemicals that are present in a food contact material (FCM) or food contact article (FCA) but have not been added for a technical reason during the production process. NIAS have various sources and can be grouped into side products, breakdown products, and contaminants.

The analysis is readily available with simulants 50% ethanol, 95% ethanol, and iso-octane. Please see a separate product if analysis is required with dry food simulant (Tenax).

The price includes a simple risk assessment based on EU regulations for food contact materials and EFSA's Threshold of Toxicological Concern (TTC) approach. More extensive risk assessment is available upon request.
