Whitepaper: Elemental profiling of Malbec Wines for geographical origin using an Agilent 4200 MP-AES
Red wine produced from the Malbec grape is increasing in popularity in the United States. However, the US is a relatively small producer of the wine compared to Argentina, where it is the most extensively planted grape variety in the country. With rising imports into the US from Argentina there…
Application note: Food authenticity testing with the Agilent 6546 LC/Q-TOF and MassHunter Classifier
False labeling and adulteration are growing problems in food manufacturing, underlining the need for easy-to-use tools for quality control analysis in this industry.
Welcome to Issue 4 of Analytix Reporter.
Automated extraction, SPE clean-up and LC-MS/MS determination of 5 antibiotics in egg results in excellent matrix elimination, accuracy and precision.
QuEChERS has become the most important analytical method in routine pesticide labs for food and feed samples. In particular, nearly all types of fruits and vegetables are analysed with this methodology worldwide for several hundred pesticides applied in agriculture.
Taste, texture and appearance are all key quality attributes that determine the success of a snack food in the market. Testing of the product during the manufacturing process for moisture, oil, seasoning and color is important to ensure final product consistency and "freshness". In addition, minimizing acrylamide formation in potato…
Contamination of food products with pesticides has been a concern for years due to the risk of acute or delayed health and environmental effects. The world-wide usage of pesticides is increasing, as is exposure to them, and there are also more imports of raw foodstuffs from unknown sources.
Application Note: Extraction of Pesticides from Spices Utilizing a Rapid and Automated Alternative to QuEChERS
The QuEChERS method has been shown to be practical for pesticide clean up and extraction on a number of different sample types and is increasingly being used on more difficult matrices. Unfortunately, this process is a manual, multi-step process that can be time consuming and yield variable results.
Most food processors require a metal detector to comply with food safety standards and ensure complete product safety and quality. Although your metal detector may be ‘ticking all of the boxes’, if it’s not working to the optimum sensitivity specification, then metal contamination could be passing through your production line,…
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) publishes the EN ISO 6579-1 standard, which specifies a horizontal method for the detection of Salmonella spp. in the food production chain.
The analysis of mineral oil hydrocarbons in food needs for every type of food an adequate sample preparation and this could be complex and difficult.
Poster: Validation of the UltraSnap Surface ATP test and ensure luminometer for ATP hygiene monitoring on stainless steel surfaces
The use of rapid ATP tests allows for a quick determination of cleanliness; this study demonstrates the use of dry and wet bacteria from surfaces as a measurand of the performance of the device.
The trend of consuming more natural foods such as raw milk has been on the rise for its perceived health benefits and enhanced nutritional qualities. However, natural foods are not necessarily safer.
