Food contaminant testing method
Applied Biosystems and its joint venture partner, Sciex, have announced the release of a food testing method intended to help public health laboratories and food manufacturers improve food safety.
The Food Testing Method for Melamine and Cyanuric Acid is designed to increase the accuracy and reduce the amount of time to identify the food contaminants melamine and cyanuric acid from 30 min to less than 6 min. The method is based on liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry. It is the first commercially available method to test for both contaminants simultaneously with this technology.
The method is being delivered through a software application suite known as Cliquid Software for Routine Food Testing from Applied Biosystems/MDS Sciex. The Cliquid software provides a simple process to use advanced mass spectrometry systems for routine food testing. Cliquid Software for Routine Food Testing is claimed to increase the precision and comprehensiveness of food contaminant testing, whilst also simplifying the process for routine analysis. Laboratories have used Cliquid software to test for other food contaminants, such as pesticides, dyes and mould-related toxins, in addition to chemical and antibiotic residues.
