Solution for Nitrosamine Testing in Children’s Rubber Based Products
Oct 02 2018 Read 714 Times
Ellutia has developed an analysis solution, for the detection of carcinogenic and mutagenic Nitrosamines found in rubber products. The method utilises GC separation followed by an Ellutia 810 TEA (Thermal Energy Analyser) for detection. A specific focus on exposure to babies and young children falls under the scope of UK methods BS EN 71-12:2016 (Safety of toys; N-nitrosamines and N-nitrosatable substances) and BS EN 12868:2017 (Child use and care articles – Method for determining the release of N-nitrosamines and N-nitrosatable substances from elastomer or rubber teats and soothers). The Ellutia TEA 800 series is an approved detector for analysing compounds by these methods.
Potentially any item containing nitrites/nitrates could contain nitrosamines and any process that uses secondary amines, where the manufacturing process results in an introduction of atmospheric nitrous oxide, could produce nitrosamines.
As the TEA is a Nitrogen specific detector, the very high sensitivity and selectivity for the compounds of interest is superior to other detectors. The Ellutia 800 series TEA has the ability to interface with most commonly available GC models.
