Thermo Scientific Dioxin Analyzer

Thursday, 28 March, 2019 | Supplied by: Thermo Fisher Scientific


Thermo Fisher Scientific has developed a workflow to address the complexity faced by scientists testing food and animal feeds for low levels of dioxins and ‘dioxin-like’ polychlorinated biphenyls (dl-PCBs). The validated workflow is compliant with the latest EU regulations aimed at controlling the maximum levels of dioxins and dl-PCBs in food and feed as a full confirmatory method.

The Thermo Scientific Dioxin Analyzer includes the Thermo Scientific Triple Quadrupole TSQ 9000 GC-MS/MS system equipped with an advanced ionisation source (AEI) designed for enhanced sensitivity, and a range of productivity tools to deliver routine analyses. The workflow includes all instrument components, capillary GC column, system suitability check, standard solutions, software and comprehensive user guidelines for rapid implementation and ongoing optimum performance.

The product helps food safety scientists carry out sensitive screening and confirmation using an off-the shelf workflow that is robust, compliant and easy to use. The sensitivity and robustness of the instrumentation is designed to permit minimal sample concentration steps, deliver good uptime and improve productivity in the laboratory.

With the Thermo Scientific Chromeleon Chromatography Data System (CDS) software built into the workflow, the Dioxin Analyzer offers: sensitive determination of trace levels in complex sample matrices facilitated by the Thermo Scientific Advanced Electron Ionization source, which permits the use of low sample weights; productive data processing and reporting through a comprehensive suite of tools and pre-loaded acquisition, calculation and reporting templates designed to meet European Union requirements for PCBs/dioxin confirmation; and operational simplicity, with set-up guidance documentation and quality check standard that can facilitate out-of-box implementation and help with training needs.
