We have built a validated process for the simple analysis of wine components using only signature peaks and multiplets. An extended capability makes this possible, together with a semi-automated work flow that allows the trained user to quickly achieve an analysis that is checked and correct. [1, 2] After analysis, results are exported and automatically uploaded to a corporate database.
We shall demonstrate the program features that make this analysis possible, and show results for a wine analysis. A surprising level of analysis can be achieved, with >50 metabolites reliably quantified from a single 600 MHz 1H NMR spectrum. Quantification results were validated through certified compound additions. The process is part of a streamlined analysis that is performed on ca. 50 samples per day per analyst.
Automation of Sample Preparation for Metabolomic Analysis Using Robotic PlatformPoster
We developed an automated sample preparation protocol based on a robotic platform PAL RTC (CTC Analytics AG, Zwingen Switzerland), which represent a modified Bligh and Dyer method producing samples for both hydrophilic metabolomics using GC-MS and lipidomics using SFC-MS simultaneously.READ MORE
Identifying Non-Intentionally Added Substances (NIAS) in Food Contact MaterialsPoster
Concern about the safety of food products has increased dramatically with intentionally and non-intentionally added substances (NIAS) used in packaging being of particular interest. APGC and high resolution MS together with a workflow driven process was used to identify unknown compounds in packaging.READ MORE
Human exposure to cyanotoxins: Exploring in vitro detoxification using atmospheric cold plasma treatment to protect human healthPoster
Recently, there have been increases in freshwater harmful algal blooms. There is therefore a need to try and effectively detoxify drinking water contaminated with cyanotoxins to safeguard human health by use of new and novel techniques.READ MORE
