Nickel Migration (NiMS)

The release of nickel from jewellery products, in close contact or pierced through the skin, is the most widespread cause of allergic contact dermatitis, which affects an estimated 10% - 20% of the population. Many ordinary items such as buttons, coins, spectacle frames, watch straps, and zips may contain nickel, and as such, it is hard for sufferers to avoid.

 

The AXIO Proficiency Testing Nickel Migration Scheme (NiMS) is designed to assess the performance of laboratories undertaking the determination of nickel release from articles intended to come into direct and prolonged contact with the skin. This is per the European Regulation (EC) 1907/2006. 

 

The method for the determination of nickel release from such products is defined in European standard EN 1811 (2011). The article to be tested is suspended in an artificial sweat solution for a period of a week, after which time the concentration of dissolved nickel in the solution is determined by ICP-MS or a similarly accurate and precise technique. NiMs is designed to determine the success of such quality control methods operating in your laboratory.
