GC-MS/MS Analysis of Receptor-Sensitizing Spice Ingredients
Product News Dec 20, 2013
Thermo Fisher Scientific has developed a sensitive and precise method for quantitative determination of several receptor-sensitizing natural active ingredients found in spices, such as chili peppers and cinnamon bark using gas chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (GC-MS/MS).
Application Note 10355, GC-MS/MS Analysis of the Receptor-Sensitizing Natural Active Spice Ingredients Capsaicin, Piperine, and Thymol, describes a very sensitive and precise assay for the trace analysis of these compounds.
The investigated compounds were detected with high signal-to-noise ratios down to the 10 ppb level. The analysis was performed using a Thermo Scientific™ TRACE™ 1310 GC system coupled to a Thermo Scientific™ TSQ 8000™ triple-quadrupole GC-MS/MS equipped with AutoSRM software.
