Chromatography in Food Testing
Chromatography can be used at various stages of the food chain from determining the quality of food to detecting additives, pesticides and other harmful contaminants. Whatever your application, we have a breadth of solutions designed to solve your separation and detection challenges. Our diverse portfolio spans liquid chromatography (LC), liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS), gas chromatography (GC and GC/MS).
Better GC for the most critical applications
We offer industry-leading chromatographic solutions to help ensure the quality and safety of food supplies around the world. GC for food quality applications helps food processors to characterize flavor and fragrance profile of finished goods to meet consumers demands. For food safety, we enable the detection of harmful contaminants and pesticides to help ensure compliance with global regulations to protect human health.
Gas Chromatography – Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) is a widely used technique for qualitative and quantitative analysis of food composition, food additives, flavor and aroma components and contaminants such as pesticides, natural toxins, veterinary drugs and packaging material. Our portfolio of GC/MS solutions is designed to empower your science and ensure you receive accurate, reliable results – every time.
High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) is a very sensitive analytical technique increasingly used to separate and detect additives, ingredients, nutritional components, and contaminants in food. Whether you need high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) or ultra-high performance chromatography (UHPLC), we offer the right technology for testing your food samples, efficiently and accurately. Our robust Flexar™ HPLC and UHPLC systems perform reliably, are easy to operate, and ideal for routine analysis or even your most demanding applications.
In recent years, to protect the health of consumers, more meticulous monitoring of food, more rigorous regulations with lower limits of quantification (LOQs) are required.
The use of liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MSMS) is widely recognized as the extremely sensitive and highly specific technique of choice for the determination of food contaminants at trace levels including pesticides, veterinary drugs, natural toxins, and so-called “emerging contaminants”.
Our robust and reliable QSight® triple quad systems consistently deliver the throughput and productivity you need in your analytical testing lab. Our LC/MS/MS solutions deliver the highest sensitivity and throughput the industry has ever seen and the capability to test for the most challenging, complex samples, including cannabis.
