The Food and Flavor industry spans a wide range of challenging applications, from complex odor problems to in-mouth flavor profile analysis. Some of these applications are either difficult to perform, or completely impossible with traditional analytical methods.
Due to these time-consuming steps of calibration/adsorption/desorption, more time is spent preparing samples for analysis than on the analysis itself. Even then, the analysis time can be considerable due to the nature of traditional methods (SPME/GC/TD) which require:
Heating/equilibrium steps, elution steps, cleaning steps, and others that come with chromatographic separation techniques.
This online workshop will demonstrate a modern approach to solve a range of analytical problems for the Food and Flavor industry by use of direct, ultra-sensitive, selective, real-time, mass spectrometry.
Selected Ion Flow-tube Mass Spectrometry (SIFT-MS) is a technique that utilizes chemical ionization to quantitatively and qualitatively analyze scent/odor/flavor profiles containing nearly any chemical species. Organic compounds (sulfurs, alcohols, aldehydes, esters, and more) can be measured at the same time.
This workshop content is aimed at:
- Those who are looking for a new, fast, simpler approach to Food and Flavor analysis
- Those who are familiar with the SIFT-MS technique but want to learn more about how this modern technique is being applied throughout the Consumer Industry
- Those who wish to see a live demonstration of the SIFT-MS instrument in action, from method creation and sample scanning, through to data collection and analysis.
By the end of the webinar, attendees will:
- Understand how direct mass spectrometry can be utilized within the food and flavor industry
- Understand the simplicity of the technique
- Be able to compare SIFT-MS to traditional techniques
- Determine the value of SIFT-MS within their research/analytical scope
Questions and comments during the workshop are welcomed, we will aim to answer these either during the workshop itself or at the end of the live stream and live demonstrations.
Event commences at: 10:00 EST / 15:00 CET 30th November
Registrants will be provided with a link to the Gotowebinar portal 2 days prior to the event.
