Features: Making LIMS a Hub for Compliance and Much More

Lab information management systems harness data from myriad sources to not only prove product is safe for compliance, but to make production more efficient by pinpointing weak spots

Features: Selecting a Rapid Microbiological Test Method

There are various factors influencing a rapid method’s effectiveness that need to be taken into consideration

Departments: Laboratory Equipment: Traceability and Throughput, Driven by FSMA

The right tools and services can keep labs running smoothly

Departments: Age of Automation to Transform Food Labs

Leverage technology and technique to terminate threats to the food supply.

Features: Here, Now, and Soon to Be: A Suite of Food Lab Innovations

It’s often said that the future is now, which may explain why so many people are unprepared for it.

Departments: Advances in LC/MS for Food Safety Testing

In recent years, the utilization of liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry/mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) has grown rapidly and is now widely recognized as an ideal, highly specific, and extremely sensitive technique for testing food products with superior accuracy and higher throughput than other methods such as LC/ultraviolet, LC/fluorescence, or microbiological and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay methods.

Departments: ICP-MS for Detecting Heavy Metals in Foodstuffs

Heavy metals can be toxic for humans when they are not metabolized by the body and accumulate in the soft tissues. Depending on the heavy metal in question, toxicity can occur at levels just above naturally occurring background levels, meaning that consumption of food with a high heavy metal concentration can cause acute or chronic poisoning.

Departments: Sweet Science

Throughout history, people have used honey to sweeten and add flavor. Although its sweetness is similar to that of granulated sugar, honey has a distinctive flavor that is largely determined by the flower type from which the nectar is gathered.

Departments: Detect Melamine With ELISA Assays

With common industrial uses, melamine is frequently mixed with formaldehyde to produce melamine-formaldehyde resin, a type of plastic known for its flame retardant properties. Used in the manufacture of countertops, dry-erase boards, laminates, glues, adhesives, paper and textiles, melamine has more recently been identified in some food products. Investigations have identified raw materials suppliers who have been illegally adding this nitrogen-rich chemical to food sources in order to increase its...

Departments: Moisture Content Analysis

Like many products, nuts have a moisture content (MC) “sweet spot” where they’re dry enough to meet customer quality specs but not so dry that they break during shipment. To check quality reliably as the nuts are processed, shipped, stored, and used as ingredients, manufacturers need a moisture method that is…
