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
