Title: The Importance of Ultra Fast Mass Spectrometry for the Analysis of Chemical Hazards in Food & Beverages

Duration: 1 hour

Available On Demand

 

Summary

Separation Science, in collaboration with Shimadzu,  offers an on-demand webinar and accompanying webinar companion that highlight the importance of ultra fast mass spectrometry for the analysis of chemical hazards in food and beverages. This is discussed in the context of the regulatory requirements for the analysis of contaminants in foods and a general overview of chemical hazards in foods.

The increasing complexity of the food supply chain, the exponential growth of chemical hazards and their regulations have brought several challenges to the field of food safety. The need for productive gains and increased confidence in reporting non-compliant samples are particularly noteworthy challenges for laboratories that are routinely relied upon for maintaining a safe food supply chain. To meet these demands, mass spectrometric techniques such as tandem mass spectrometry and quadruple-time-of-flight mass spectrometry have emerged as the detectors of choice for the analysis of organic chemical hazards in foods and beverages.

One of the more recent significant developments is Shimadzu’s ultra fast family of mass spectrometric detectors that provide opportunities to increase both productivity and reporting confidence compared with more conventional mass spectrometric detectors. The importance of these state-of-the-art instruments to the analysis of chemical hazards in food will be discussed in the context of the regulatory requirements for the analysis of contaminants in foods and a general overview of chemical hazards in foods.
