A Fast Method for Targeted Allergen Screening and Nontargeted Characterization for Personal Care Products

A gas chromatography–time-of-flight mass spectrometry method was developed to screen for and quantify regulated allergens in approximately 5 min. This method used a short and narrow chromatographic column along with mathematical deconvolution of the TOF-MS data to separate the target allergens from each other in the standards and from matrix interference in samples.
