Validated Analytical Workflow Provides Sensitive and Reliable Solution for Testing Food and Feed

Jul 22 2019 Read 782 Times

Thermo Scientific Dioxin Analyzer offers cost-effective determination of harmful contaminants as required by European regulators.

A new workflow addresses the high cost and complexity faced by scientists testing food and animal feeds for low levels of dioxins and 'dioxin-like' polychlorinated biphenyls (dl-PCBs). The validated workflow is compliant with the latest EU regulations aimed at controlling the maximum levels of dioxins and dl-PCBs in food and feed as a full confirmatory method.

The Thermo Scientific™ Dioxin Analyzer includes the Thermo Scientific™ TSQ™ 9000 triple quadrupole GC-MS/MS system equipped with an advanced ionisation source (AEI) designed for enhanced sensitivity, and a range of productivity tools to deliver reliable and cost-effective routine analyses. The workflow includes all instrument components, capillary GC column, system suitability check, standard solutions, software and comprehensive user guidelines for rapid implementation and ongoing optimum performance.

With the Thermo Scientific™ Chromeleon™ Chromatography Data System (CDS) software built into the workflow, the Dioxin Analyzer offers:

  • Sensitive determination of trace levels in complex sample matrices facilitated by the new Thermo Scientific™ Advanced Electron Ionisation source, which permits the use of low sample weights that is expected to provide low costs of sample preparation and system maintenance
  • Productive data processing and reporting through a comprehensive suite of tools and pre-loaded acquisition, calculation and reporting templates designed to meet European Union requirements for PCBs/dioxin confirmation
  • Operational simplicity with setup guidance documentation and quality check standard that can facilitate out-of-box implementation and help with training needs
