Bruker Presents Food Analysis Application Data at RAFA 2011 Vendor Seminar

Experts from Bruker's CAM division will present new data on several of its food testing solutions at the 5th International Symposium on Recent Advances in Food Analysis (RAFA 2011), 2-4 November 2011, in Prague, Czech Republic. 

Application case studies will be presented as part of Bruker's Vendor Seminar at the meeting, Speakers will also highlight the company's commitment to transparent migration to Bruker solutions, and discuss how the Bruker team can assist with implementation and refinement of client methodologies. 

Bruker's food testing solutions portfolio was recently extended with the addition of capability in the GC-MS arena, with the launch of the SCIONTM SQ and TQ GC-MS. There is significant risk to human health and the environment from increased pesticide use, and the analysis of pesticide residues in grain often results in enhanced responses and matrix interference leading to false positives and false negatives. The details of this case study, utilizing the power and sensitivity of the SCION TQ GC-MS, will be one of the highlights of Bruker's Vendor Seminar.  

"We look forward to presenting data on pesticide residues and matrix combinations where interferences and minimization of false results with significant limitations in levels of detection and quantification in grains and pulses will be discussed and illustrated," said Meredith Conoley, GC-MS Markets Manager for Bruker's Chemical & Applied Markets (CAM) division. "These data, along with other presentations from our food testing solutions portfolio, serve to demonstrate Bruker's commitment to food analysis, food quality control and pesticide screening, along with meeting the expanding needs of a global market."

Studies evaluating Bruker's instrumentation focusing on recent advanced analytical technologies and emerging food-related applications being presented at RAFA include:
  • A new complete solution for automated, comprehensive ESI-(Q-)TOF full scan accurate mass screening of pesticides in food with high confidence.
  • Matrix matched standards reveal matrix MRM interferences and minimize false results in pesticide residue analysis of grains and pulses.
  • Use and qualification of TXRF for trace element analysis of dietary supplements and nutrients.
  • NMR-based food quality screening.
