Analysis of Micronutrients in Milk Using the Avio 220 Max ICP-OES


With its great importance, milk is available in several different forms: fresh, boxed (ultraheat treated), powdered, and evaporated. The most commonly consumed form varies globally, being dependent on factors such as geography, culture, and climate. For milk producers, internal quality control and the possibility of external monitoring provide strong incentives for the ability to quickly, accurately, and easily monitor nutrients in their products.

This work demonstrates the ability of the Avio® 220 Max hybrid simultaneous ICP-OES to reliably and effectively analyze a variety of milk samples for an array of elements over a wide range of concentrations.
