Application of multivariate statistical analysis to a combined data set demonstrated that SIFT-MS discriminates premium quality beef from eight sensory defects, and, therefore, could be applied as an instrumental grading tool, obviating sensory panel grading.

This study assesses whether two commonly used plastic packaging materials are safe for use. Their potential migrants are analyzed using data-independent acquisition and liquid chromatography coupled with high-resolution, accurate-mass mass spectrometry.

The method described here is a simple method for detection of a wide spectrum of metals and for quantitative analysis over a wide dynamic range of elements, including both toxic metals and those metals essential for health and well-being.

A discussion of challenges in mycotoxin analysis, a new multi-analyte method that does not require sample cleanup, and how analytical chemistry can help reduce contamination by these toxins along the food chain.

Using highly specific immunoaffinity solid-phase extraction to selectively extract and enrich aflatoxins prior to HPLC-FLD analysis, without derivatization, low LOQ values-far below the European regulations-can be achieved even in highly complex and fatty matrices.
