New products and applications to enhance workflows for the analysis of residues and contaminants

  • Tues., July 25
  • 12:15 – 1:15 p.m.
  • Vista Ballroom, Level 1

Lunch will be served.

Topic 1: Confident Quantitation Workflows for Today and Tomorrow

Technical highlights of a newly introduced triple quadrupole MS platform will be discussed along with application data demonstrating sensitive, robust, reliable and reproducible detection and quantification. Examples include pesticide residues in leek matrix, polar ionic pesticides and algal toxins in water. Also, workflow solutions such as the Thermo Scientific™ Pesticide Explorer Collection will be discussed along with software solutions that provide easy data review and reporting. For each application, excellent sensitivity, robustness, reliability and ease-of-use result in high quality data that enable confidence for every routine analytical testing laboratory.

Topic 2: Two Years On: The Impact of Orbitrap GC-MS in Food Analysis

In 2015, the first fully integrated Thermo Scientific™ Orbitrap™ GC-MS system became available. This technology has allowed new capabilities in both targeted and non-targeted GC-MS analysis by combining high resolving power, high mass accuracy, excellent sensitivity and linearity. Two years on, various scientists have explored the unique capability of this instrument in a diverse range of food-related applications.  Highlighted examples will include pesticide residue analysis; persistent organic pollutants; food contact materials and authenticity analysis.
