Two recent research studies using LC-MS — focused on the analysis of beer and e-cigarettes — demonstrate the power of the technology for applications of importance and emerging concern.
Molecular biology methods are increasingly being used to monitor agricultural products directly, at the site where the crops and animals are commercially produced. Innovations in Tissue Extraction and Tissue Processing help to ensure the best possible outcome for farmers, scientists, and producers.
The Food Safety and Testing Infographic is a living resource, keeping stride with emerging developments in the fast-moving food and beverage industries. This post serves as a chronology of the infographic, citing ongoing developments in the areas of: Pesticides and Contaminants Testing, Food Profiling and Authenticity, Food Quality Control, Food Borne Illness and Microbial Testing.
Malvern Panalytical’s Mastersizer 3000 sets the standard for delivering rapid, accurate particle size analysis in fields as diverse as pharmaceutical development, battery manufacture, and cement production.
The food and beverage industry will benefit significantly by staying ahead of continuing trends. While safety remains a top priority, technology and consumer habits will undoubtedly be drivers in efficiency and long-term sustainability.
MS methods for pesticide analysis have evolved over the years as many permutations of extraction, cleanup, separation, and detection have been implemented.
In addition to food testing, portable compact mass spectrometry analysis is valuable in industries including food safety and testing, water purity, environmental sampling, and diagnostics.
With the growing variety of food sources and products available, there is a requirement for new technologies and testing methods to address safety concerns.
Analytical labs need to achieve the sensitivity and reliability needed to maintain high quality cannabis production and food safety. QuEChERS extraction is a reputable method that can also be used for cannabis pesticides analysis.
