Ultra Fast Mass Spectrometry for the Analysis of Chemical Hazards in Food & Beverages

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.

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 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 this on-demand presentation in the context of the regulatory requirements for the analysis of contaminants in foods and a general overview of chemical hazards in foods.

The key learning outcomes from this presentation include:

  • Understanding the core challenges for food testing
  • Recognizing the key elements that can accelerate and streamline your workflow and increase your data confidence
  • Learning and applying in various food safety analysis (e.g. multi-residual pesticides, veterinary drugs and mycotoxins)

If you are a scientists or lab personnel conducting food analysis, a lab manager in a testing lab, a regulatory agency in the food industry then this talk is ideal for you.

The presentation is given by Dr Peter Varelis. Peter has more than 20 years of research experience in both government and industry. He was also on an Elsevier editorial board (Food Chemistry and Analysis). His current research interest is the application of mass spectrometry to investigate organic compounds that have implications for human health and nutrition.
