GC-MS for Food Safety Analysis
eBook Mar 18, 2021
In order to protect consumers and the environment, monitoring the food supply to ensure levels of chemical residues and contaminants are compliant with statutory levels set by regulatory bodies is imperative. Detecting and quantifying many thousands of residues and contaminants from different chemical classes, at potentially extremely low levels, in diverse food commodities and products can be extremely challenging. Gas chromatography- mass spectrometry (GC-MS) is one analytical technique adopted by testing laboratories conducting food-related analyses.

- Simple and cost-effective
- Fast and ultra-sensitive
- Able to characterize the unknown
Ion chromatography does not require sample derivatization and little to no sample preparation. It allows for minimal handling of toxic reagents and does not generate any hazardous chemical waste. Sample integrity and stability is maintained and the sample can be simply reconstituted in water and directly injected.
