Isotope fingerprints are powerful tools to determine authenticity, country of origin and potential frauds for food and beverage samples.
Susanne Ekroth will present you the workflow for SweEt with around 550 pesticide analytes in targeted mode with triple quadrupole techniques as well as the Thermo Scientific Q Exactive Focus Orbitrap for LC-amendable analytes.
David Borts presents the Q Exactive Focus mass spectrometer system – high-resolution accurate-mass (HRAM) capabilities.
Ed George presents how the new Thermo Scientific TSQ Quantis and TSQ Altis Triple Quadrupole MS Systems can be used in veterinary medicines methodology.
Complete workflow solution for the analysis of 330 pesticide residues by liquid chromatography high resolution mass spectrometry is demonstrated.
DualData XL Module of the Thermo Scientific DFS Magnetic Sector GC-HRMS is designed for doubled performance throughput for Dioxins and POPs analysis.
Isotope fingerprints analyzed by LC-IRMS enable to identify if the sugar in the honey is natural or was artificially added.
Oxygen isotope fingerprint analyzed with the Thermo Scientific GasBench II System allows the identification of water addition in commercial wine.
Food and beverage have a fingerprint, a unique chemical signature. To visualize this fingerprint, IRMS can be used identifying origin and authenticity.
The poster shows the comparison of the N/Protein data obtained with the Thermo Scientific FlashSmartEA using argon as carrier gas to the data obtained using helium.
Protein determination is used for the evaluation of food and animal feed quality and potentially for the uncovering of potential mislabeling cases.
Welcome to the on-demand highlights from the Recent Advances in Food Analysis (RAFA) 2015 held in Prague, Czech Republic. Watch videos of poster presentations, view and read posters presented at the exhibition by experts in food analysis and download for future reference. Join the experience to hear expert testimonials and update your knowledge of food safety analysis. Come and join us in 2017 at the 8th International Symposium.

As fraudsters become increasingly knowledgeable and adept, authentication of food and beverages becomes more and more challenging. I was keen to see if GC- Orbitrap technology represented a new tool in the defense of food safety and quality – and Scotland’s centuries-old whisky industry.
