The Power of High Resolution Mass Spectrometry

The “Leatherman” in Analytics

For authentication and safety, we presented four great ideas of what HRMS can do:

  • O. Chevallier: Small Molecules Approach
  • J. Brockmeyer: Proteomics Approach
  • G. P. Luciani: Dioxins & PCBs
  • J. Won: Pesticides

These ideas were presented by the four speakers listed above.

Olivier Chevallier from the Institute for Global Food Security Belfast in Northern Ireland, spoke about “Using High-Resolution Mass Spectrometry to Detect and Investigate the Fraudulent Adulteration of Oregano.”

Jens Brockmeyer, Head of Department Food Chemistry Institute of Biochemistry and Technical Biochemistry at the University of Stuttgart in Stuttgart, Germany addressed the conference with a discussion on food authenticity. His address is titled, “Exact Masses for Authentic Food: What Can Proteomics Do for Food Authenticity?”

Gian Piero Luciani, Tentamus Agriparadigma, from Ravenna, Italy spoke about, “Dioxin and PCBs Analysis in Food and Feed using GC-HRMS according to the most stringent European Regulations.”

Jon Wong, from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration Office of Regulatory Science in College Park, MD, addressed the group about a new workflow for Pesticide Screening. His presentation is titled, “A Multilaboratory Study Utilizing nDATA(non-target Data Acquisition for Target Analysis) Workflow for Multiresidue Pesticide Screening by Ultra-High Performance Liquid Chromatography-High Resolution Mass Spectrometry with a Compound Database.”
