Food Safety Live 2021 ONLINE Summit
Join us at the online summit!
This new virtual event places some of the food and drink sector’s current major challenges in the spotlight. By assessing and debating some of the industry’s most challenging topics – including pesticides, sugar analysis and mycotoxins – we aim to shed light on the things we may not want to know, but certainly should. Only through tackling issues head on can we hope to solve our most pressing problems, so join us for a day of exploration and problem solving.
Please contact us during the online summit to get more information for the following instruments/ solution packages:
New Nexera UHPLC system: “The perfect fit for sugar analysis”
Shimadzu’s Nexera series of UHPLC systems offers groundbreaking technology in terms of intelligence, efficiency and design. Advanced AI capabilities and lab management using the Internet of Things (IoT) have been integrated to monitor performance and resource allocation. They make the new Nexera systems a leading-edge and user-friendly solution for versatile industries, setting new benchmarks in UHPLC.
In the newly-developed IonFocus unit, the ion transport electrodes reduce sensitivity loss from matrix effects by expelling neutral matrix particles with greater efficiency. Using the LCMS-8060NX's world-class polarity reversal speed (5 ms) and data capture speed (1.5 ms), stable data was obtained even for high-speed analysis of multiple components. The IonFocus unit also introduces ions into the detector more efficiently, improving the signal intensity. Of 100 compounds tested in tea leaves, 96% showed excellent recoveries.
SFC-MS/MS: “Pesticide Analysis by SFC-MS”
SFC-MS/MS can be used to separate numerous pesticides with a wide range of different polarities, and it also achieves a marked increase in sensitivity for a large number of compounds. The combination of intrinsic universal sensitivity and specificity of the Triple Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer with the versatility of supercritical fluid chromatography technique offers an appealing alternative to the conventional LC-MS approach.
The quadrupole time-of-flight (Q-TOF) LCMS-9030 system is a research grade mass spectrometer designed to deliver high-resolution, accurate-mass detection with incredibly fast data acquisition rates, allowing scientists to identify and quantify more compounds with greater confidence.
Ultra-High-Sensitivity Triple Quadrupole GC-MS for Pesticide Analysis. Equipped with a new highly efficient detector and three forms of noise-reduction technologies, the GCMS-TQ8050 NX is capable of performing unprecedented quantitative analyses of ultra-trace amounts, down to the femtogram level.
