Elemental analysis is a generic term for a group of applications which deal with the analysis of a variety of materials (chemicals, liquids, polymers, waste material, etc.) for their elemental or isotopic properties. Typical examples of elemental analysis techniques where mass flow control plays a key role are Total Organic Carbon (TOC) or Total Organic Halides (TOX).

The molecules can be deliberately labeled with stable isotopes, in one or more positions, and since they are minimally discriminated in metabolic processes, may be used as a tracer in chemical and biological studies.
Recognition of raw materials: The analysis of stable isotopes is very important especially in studies of authenticity of the food. It, on the basis of different isotopic ratio, allows to recognize molecules, present in foods, having the same chemical structure but coming from different raw materials or processed by different processes, for example for biological synthesis or industrial.
In nature, the chemical elements can be represented by more isotopes, or atoms of the same element, characterized by a different number of neutrons in the nucleus. When the proton / neutron ratio does not exceed that value likely to upset the balance of the atom, resulting in the phenomenon known as stabilization of radioactive decay, the isotope is called stable. That is, over time, will not tend to emit energy and sub-nuclear particles to gain energy stability, giving rise, at the end of the process, the daughter nucleus (a different element, characterized by stability energy).
