Environmental Pollutants in Foods Information
Reliably detect environmental contaminants
Thermo Fisher Scientific has a strong commitment to supporting laboratories charged with the task of researching and monitoring environmental pollutants. Our commitment ensures high productivity, added value solutions for some of the most challenging environmental pollutant determinations.
To reinforce our commitment, we have established a Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) Center of Excellence; staffed with experts in POPs analysis, to be used as a direct resource for our customers and associates. Located in Bremen, Germany the center will look to support our customers and associates internationally.

A novel high resolution accurate mass Orbitrap-based GC-MS platform for routine analysis of Short Chained Chlorinated Paraffins
Short Chained Chlorinated Paraffins (SCCPs) are emerging contaminants that, once released, will remain in the environment for long periods of time with the potential to bioaccumulate in living organisms. In this study, the performance of a novel bench top, high resolution accurate mass Orbitrap-based GC-MS was tested for the analysis of SCCPs.
Determination of Persistent Organic Pollutants in Honey by Accelerated Solvent Extraction and GC-MS/MS
Honey is a natural product that is widely used for both nutritional and medicinal purposes. It is generally considered a natural and healthy product of animal origin; free of impurities.
This customer application note describes the determination of pesticides and POPs in organic honey from in three different Italian regions, using GC-MS/MS with accelerated solvent extraction.
Discover how effective screening can be utilized in the POPs workflow to allow more time and instrument resources to focus on non-compliant samples. The POPs Center of Excellence serves as a customer reference for resources as well as a partner to laboratories working to improve POPs analysis.
Meeting the European Commission Performance Criteria for the Use of Triple Quadrupole GC-MS/MS as a Confirmatory Method for PCDD/Fs in Food and Feed Samples
Detailed results that demonstrate how this highly sensitive and selective analytical system can be confidently used to detect and confirm levels of PCDD/Fs in food and feed samples.
Determination of Persistent Organic Pollutants in Fish Tissues by Accelerated Solvent Extraction and GC-MS/MS
An analytical method was developed and applied to evaluate POP residues in tuna samples from different FAO areas. The method proved to be simple and rapid, requiring small sample sizes and minimizing solvent consumption, due to use of accelerated solvent extraction with an in-line clean up step.
