    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Defines a method for the pressure digestion of foodstuffs intended for the determination of elements.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This European Standard specifies a method for the pressure digestion of foodstuffs intended for the determination of elements. This method has been collaboratively tested in combination with atomic absorption (flame, electrothermal (ET), hydride, cold-vapour) techniques and ICP-MS. Other techniques such as e.g. ICP-OES, voltammetry or atomic fluorescence can be used in combination with this European Standard.
