The objective of this report is to give an overview of existing methods for the determination of elements in infant formulae. An evaluation is done with special regard to feasibility, precision and accuracy. Atomspectrometry is the most widely used and the most highly developed technique, both in respect of atomic absorption and emission spectrometry. As a result it has superseded practically all other methods such as electrochemical and spectrophotometric techniques and became the method of choice for element determination.
