Proposed is a Cross Product Carry Over (CPCO) testing method using a vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) to qualitatively determine the presence of contamination in a magnetic toner product. Since the VSM measures the magnitude of a magnetic field present in the toner, the proposed method offers time and cost saving improvements over conventional CPCO methods. It applies to the start-up of a toner manufacturing process and is particularly useful after a product change over.
