Foreign Matter


Prior to any analytical testing we properly screen all samples for foreign material. Should detection concerns arise a dissecting microscope coupled with a camera is used to further identify any foreign material.


 Potential Foreign Material:

     •  Sand  
     •  Soil  
     •  Cinders  
     •  Dirt  
     •  Glass 
     •  Plastic 
     •  Mold/Powdery Mildew
     •  Insect Fragment  
     •  Hair  
     •  Animal Excreta (mammalian, reptile, amphibian, and avian) 
     •  Imbedded Foreign Matter 

Test Duration: 1-2 Days
