Training Program for Today’s Food and Beverage Testing Lab

Sep 13, 2017 | Blogs, Food / Beverage | 0 comments

Is your lab looking to acquire methods for food testing? What about getting better acquainted on the SCIEX Triple Quad™ or QTRAP® mass spectrometers to learn quantitation better? The following SCIEXUniversity Success Program training courses not only cover food and beverage quantitation but offer application training on topics such as meat speciation testing and pesticide analysis. Especially important considering the latest Fipronil contamination in eggs.I want to sign up for courses >

Why invest in food and beverage training program? Often, we see labs with new employees or those that are switching from clinical research to food testing. These courses are designed to equip your lab with new application workflows which you can also use as a tool to train new employees. After polling food testing labs, a majority requested education targeting the basic operator. Therefore, these courses are designed to teach the fundamentals about mass spec and HPLC. They are self-paced, so you will retain more of what you learn while you also get a sense of how the system runs and how mass spec performs in your lab

Mass Spec Food and Beverage Program – Today’s courses mean you will benefit from a combination of:

  • eLearning
  • On-site and hands-on training with an application expert
  • End of course knowledge assessment and certification

Program Descriptions:

Telling the PFAS story with pine needles

As an ever-expanding group of chemicals, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) require novel techniques to monitor their current and historical presence in the environment. Concerns over exposure to PFAS chemicals continue to grow, with some having known toxic characteristics and the potential effects of others remaining unknown.1 In addition, while PFAS are one of the most persistent synthetic chemicals to date, most of them hardly degrade in the environment.2 So, how long do traces of PFAS last in our environment? Two tools used to help answer this question are active samplers and passive samplers.

Back to the new basics: Part 3 | LC vs. LC-MS and what it means for your lab

In this final installment of our “Back to the new basics” series, we take one more look at analytical techniques and best practices in the lab, and opportunities to improve efficiency. Here, we explore the basic principles of high-performance liquid chromatography (LC) and liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LC-MS), and how these techniques can affect a lab’s efficiency and productivity.

Meat vs plant based. What is the best option?

As we become more conscious about the planet, healthier lifestyles and our duty to protect the environment, attitudes and behaviours are shifting when it comes to food consumption.
