We have a MP-AES 4210 Agilent Technologies that allows us to determine the concentration of different metals in a liquid, paste or solid products. The equipment has a detection limit below ppm (10-6) and about ppb (10-9). 

We do have the expertise on analyzing the metal concentration of different paints and inks for the precious metal decoration, but the equipment can be used for analyzing trace metals or metal content on a very broad range of products.

To analyze the concentration of the different metals on the product, it needs to be previously digested with the appropriate acids. We do also have the expertise on doing the digestion of the sample, and we offer that service.

In our daily base, we are analyzing the following elements:

Al, Au, B, Bi, Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Hf, In, Ni, Os, Pb, Pd, Pt, Rh, Si, Sn, Ti, V, Zn, Zr

Nevertheless, these are just some of the overall elements that can be analyzed in the MP-AES. We could measure most of the metals or elements. If the metal or metals that you are interested in are not in the list, please let us know because we may have the standard or get it if you are interested in measuring it.
