Natural News just launched a visual tour of their forensic food lab. See how they test foods for heavy metals, digest food samples, prepare external standards and introduce samples into the Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry instrument (ICP-MS).

Video presentation includes full tour of the inner workings of the ICP-MS technology, including a discussion of the nebulizer, spray chamber, plasma torch, octopole reaction chamber, quadrapole mass analyzer and detector.

You'll learn fascinating facts about how foods are tested for metals contamination, including details about acid digestion methodologies and the high volumes of argon gas used in the quantitative analysis process.
