Achieve robust and sensitive quantitation of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDD), polychlorinated dibenzo furans (PCDF), and dioxin-like polychlorinated biphenyls (dl-PCBs) in food and feed samples in compliance with EU regulation 664/2017. The Thermo Scientific Dioxin Analyzer is an end-to-end workflow based on the Thermo Scientific TSQ 9610 triple quadrupole GC-MS/MS system equipped with the uniquely designed high sensitivity Advanced Electron Ion (AEI) source. Also incorporating a range of hardware and software productivity tools, the workflow delivers reliable and cost-effective routine analysis of dioxins and dl-PCBs.
The Dioxin Analyzer addresses the high cost and complexity faced by scientists testing food and animal feeds for low levels of dioxins and dl-PCBs. The Dioxin Analyzer includes all instrument components, capillary GC column, system suitability check standard solutions, software and comprehensive user guidelines for fast implementation and enablement of ongoing optimum performance. The benefits delivered to laboratories are the following:
Ensure sensitivity and selectivity during analysis of dioxins and furans. The Dioxin Analyzer includes consumables, system suitability check standard solutions, e-workflow with acquisition method, data processing, isotope dilution calculator, and reporting methods in compliance with EU regulations, and comprehensive user guidelines for fast implementation and enablement of ongoing optimum performance.
The TG-Dioxin (60 m × 0.25 mm, 0.25 μm) column provides isomer specificity for 2,3,7,8-TCDD and 2,3,7,8-TCDF.
Other features include the following:
The TriPlus RSH Autosampler enables automated and accurate micro-sampling and injection of limited samples resulting from extraction/clean-up and fractionation. The reproducibility of the PTV and SSL injectors, available with the TRACE 1600 Series GC, facilitate excellent chromatographic separation, even with splitless injection of several microliters. Finally, the TSQ 9610 triple quadrupole GC-MS/MS system, with fully optimized SRM transitions, allows the method to be easily implemented into any laboratory. The system delivers reproducible data at high sensitivity to meet all compliance criteria at the lowest LOQ level. This high sensitivity also extends maintenance intervals to deliver routine-grade robustness.
The Chromeleon Chromatography Data System (CDS) with Isotope Dilution Quantification delivers superior compliance tools, networking capabilities, instrument and data acquisition control, automation, compliance-ready data processing, and easy reporting.
Extensive sample reporting templates with 13C-labelled standards recovery, ion ratio, sum parameters, and LOQ flagging, amongst other features, are just some of the advantages of this CDS.
Perform your analyses in regulatory compliance within an enterprise environment—from method creation to final reporting.
