Plastic has many unique properties in terms of its manufacturability and production potential. These properties are increasingly used in the manufacturing of medical devices and medical packaging. Despite the significant growth, the safety requirements do not change.
Medistri provides phthalate trace level detection analysis and screening of polymers and other materials.
Phthalates are a category of chemical compounds that are used in a wide range of industries. Typically, they are used as a form of additive in plastics: they allow for the improvement of durability, flexibility and transparency.
Due to their regular usage in everyday products, there are concerns about the potential harmful effects of phthalates on human health. Some of them are classified as carcinogenic and/or mutagenic and/or toxic.
Some industries have put in place multiple frameworks to regulate the types and the levels of phthalates in wide range of products.
Medistri can perform phthalate trace level detection analysis and screening of products and materials especially made of polyvinyl chlroride (PVC).
These regulations require some industries to heavily & regularly monitor the presence an amount of these specific compounds. They have been established to monitor either low percentage or part per million (ppm) levels.
As a high degree of sensitivity and expertise is required, Medistri conduct this analysis using Gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) detection.
