Departments: Different Stationary Phases for PAH Analysis
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) comprise a large group of more than several hundred chemical compounds containing two or more fused aromatic rings. They are produced during incomplete combustion of organic compounds. Food can be naturally contaminated with PAHs by uptake from the environment, like mussels filtering surrounding water. The main contamination sources for food, however, are processing procedures in which PAHs are generated at significant levels, such as frying, drying, smoking,...
Departments: The Lab Revolution
Now, more than ever, food manufacturers are looking to lab science for safe and speedy answers, especially when it comes to allergens. Food allergies are a public health liability that affects both business and the consumer. More than 12 million Americans have food allergies, and many more are underdiagnosed or ignored.
Departments: The Power of Phages
The nature of food and foodborne illness has changed dramatically in the United States over the past century. While various technological advances such as pasteurization and proper canning have all but eliminated some diseases, new causes of foodborne illness are continually being identified.
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.
