Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., has announced Thermo Scientific POPs Screening and Thermo Scientific POPs Confirmation, two new regulatory compliant GC application kits for screening and confirming the presence of persistent organic pollutants (POPs).

The kits provide a simple, ready-to-use package for GC-MS analysis with all necessary consumables and methods, enabling labs to more efficiently, cost-effectively and accurately meet EU directives on POPs levels and detection sensitivity. This is especially important for the screening of food or environmental samples. Thermo Fisher will showcase the POPs analysis kits within Thermo Scientific booth 2835 during Pittcon 2011, being held March 13-18, in Atlanta.

Containing everything from columns to consumables, the POPs Screening and POPs Confirmation kits can simplify chromatographic analysis, from ordering and sample handling to final report generation. Unlike some newer chromatography methods, which are often expensive and time-consuming to develop and validate, the Thermo Scientific POPs kits eliminate the need for extensive method development and shorten the validation period, providing the highest quality data in the shortest possible time.

Contamination of food and water supplies with dioxins, furans and other persistent organic pollutants presents a real danger to public health. Regulatory bodies now require screening for these compounds down to parts per trillion. The POPs Screening and POPs Confirmation kits are designed to operate with existing Thermo Scientific GC-MS technology and software to generate toxic equivalents for the analyzed samples.

The kits are packaged with all necessary components for ease of method development, and whole kits or individual components can be rapidly reordered as needed.
