07 Oct 2013 - 11 Oct 2013 - Fera, York, UK



Bookmark and Share


This five-day course from the Fera International Food Safety Training Laboratory provides training in methods routinely used for analysis of process contaminants in food. The course will include sample preparation and analytical methods using GC and/or HPLC. The focus will be on acrylamide and 3-MCPD (plus esters) but some applications for furan by Headspace GC-MS and hydroxymethylfurfural by HPLC will be touched on. The course covers:

  • Sample preparation and homogenisation
  • Sample extraction and clean-up
  • Instrumental analysis
  • Data processing
  • EU legislation and control systems
  • Quality control
  • Validation of methods

This course is taught by experts from Fera’s Food and Environmental Safety Programme, who are specialists in food additives and process contaminants and have published widely in these areas. The team undertakes research, method development and validation, surveillance and commercial analysis in foods, beverages, food ingredients and animal feed. The team continues to develop and apply a variety of sample preparation, clean-up, and advanced chromatographic and mass spectrometric detection and measurement techniques.
