Vanillin is the major component of natural vanilla, which is one of the most widely used flavoring materials worldwide. In this app note, an ethanolic crude extract of vanilla is used to show the capacity of the PLC 2050 system to work with different types of chromatographic columns.
Manual sample preparation and treatment is a laborious process requiring constant attention in the lab. Here’s how to optimize and automate your SPE workflows.
Automated Extraction of Glyphosate, Ampa, and Glufosinate in Red Wine Prior to LC-MS/MS Analysis Without Derivation
Since 1970, glyphosate has been used as a systemic, non-selective herbicide and crop desiccant on farms, in fields, and in public and residential areas. This poster outlines the rapid purification of glyphosate, aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA), and glufosinate from red wine using AFFINIMIP® SPE Glyphosate.
In this application note we examine the limits of quantification and detection, repeatability, reproducibility, and recovery in food safety analytical testing. Automation with the GX-271 ASPEC® system provides a reproducible and reliable method for the isolation.
Deoxynivalenol (DON) is a mycotoxin that occurs predominantly in grains such as wheat, barley, oats, rye, and maize and consumption is associated with outbreaks of gastroenteritis in humans. Automated methods are well-suited for quantification of toxins because they are accurate, reduce the time required for laboratory analysis, and reduce human errors - learn more in this application note.
Nitrosamines are a class of semi-volatile organic chemical compounds characterized by a nitroso group attached to an amine group. In this tech note we describe a method for automating US EPA Method 521 using the Gilson ASPEC® 274 Large Volume System
Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) are a family of molecules consisting of varying lengths of fluorocarbon chains with a functional group such as carboxylic or sulfonic acid attached. This application note describes the automation of the isolation of 10 PFCs from tap water prior to their analysis by LC/MS.
LC-MS/MS detection of glyphosate/AMPA/ glufosinate in red wine without prior derivatization after AFFINIMIP® SPE Glyphosate cleanup
Since 1970, glyphosate has been used as a systemic, non-selective herbicide and crop desiccant on farms, in fields, and in public and residential areas. This application note describes the rapid purification of glyphosate, aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA), and glufosinate from red wine using AFFINIMIP® SPE Glyphosate.
As globalized food trade has become more common in recent years, improved screening methods combined with food inspection investigations have put a large amount of pressure on the food and beverage industry to improve quality assurance and control. This pressure led to the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), which aims to ensure the U.S. food supply is safe by shifting the focus of federal regulators from responding to contamination to preventing contamination.
