DETERMINATION OF THE QUALITY OF ACTIVE INGREDIENTS IN PAIN KILLERS USING GC-MS
Jomo Kentyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (Kenya), and Foundation of Analytical Science and Technology in Africa (UK).

From this study, the pain killers sampled were found to have large error bars suggesting that there exist counterfeit drugs in the market. The brands mostly affected for analysis of acetaminophen were panadol, action, P500, P5500, elymol and neladol. The error bars for caffeine analysis were quite low indicating that all tablets either counterfeit or original maintained the same amount of this active ingredient.
DETERMINATION OF ESSENTIAL AND HEAVY METALS IN KENYAN HONEY BY ATOMIC ABSORPTION AND EMMISSION SPECTROSCOPY

A FastGC Proton-Transfer-Reaction Quadrupole Ion Guide Time-of-Flight (PTR-QiTOF) Mass Spectrometer
1)Ionicon Analytik GmbH, Eduard- Bodem-Gasse 3, 6020 Innsbruck, Austria and 2) Institut für Ionenphysik und Angewandte Physik, Universität Innsbruck, Technikerstr. 25, 6020 Innsbruck, Austria

In order to identify and quantify isomeric compounds independently in real-time, we introduce a novel approach where we integrate a fast GC column (“fastGC”) into a PTR-QiTOF instrument. The outstanding sensitivity of the new PTR-QiTOF (up to 4,700 cps/ppbv) is crucial for applications where time per analysis is limited, e.g. nosespace in food and flavor research. Particularly, in these fields the chemical environment is normally very complex so that a high selectivity is essential as well.

Simple sample preparation for the determination of vitamin D in serum by LC-MSMS
Tecan Group Ltd.

A growing number of laboratories have moved from the use of immunoassay methods to liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MSMS) for the determination of vitamin D. The advantage of the latter method is unparalleled specificity combined with high sensitivity, offering the potential for the determination of multiple analytes, such as 25OH-vitamin D3 and 25OH-vitamin D2.
Automated Sample Preparation of 25-OH-Vitamin D3/D2 from Serum with the AC Extraction Plate and the Tecan Freedom EVO® for the quantification by LC-MS/MS
Tecan Group Ltd.

There is an increasing demand for the determination of Vitamin D status which is based on the quantification of the two metabolites 25-OH-Vitamin D3/D2. Numerous laboratories have moved from the use of immunoassay methods to liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) because of its specificity combined with high sensitivity. Moreover LC-MS/MS offers the potential for multianalyte determination which is required for Vitamin D status determination.
