A series of rapid and cost effective analytical methods will be developed to enable routine screening of feedstock material and products. These techniques include sampling with lasers so that the need for digestion with highly corrisive acids is effectively eliminated. These techniques will have less waste and use less hazardous materials than traditional methods and this will reduce the environmental impact of critical analytical testing. Developing these technologies will ensure that Natural Factors continues to be an industrial leader in quality assurance and control. The new technologies will be published in scientific journals to facilitate wide adoption of the new approaches by related industries.
