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 webinar will describe 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.
