• Ultra-Sensitive and Rapid Assay of Neonicotinoids, Fipronil and Some Metabolites in Honey by UHPLC-MS/MS [LCMS-8060]

    Fipronil, a pesticide, has been banned by European Food Security Authoritiy (EFSA) for maize seed treatment due to its high risk for honeybee health. In order to better understand the effect of these compounds on bees and their contamination in pollen and honey, a highly sensitive assay method was necessary. A method was set up using LCMSMS.

  • Analysis of Tin (Sn) in Plastic (PE) Samples using EDX

    Various methods such as ICP and X-ray spectrometry are widely used in the analysis of tin (Sn) element which is used in many industries such as electric-electronic, plastic, packaging, glass, textile. The purpose of this study is to analyse Tin element in plastic (PE) samples at the determined LOD value using EDX spectrometry, which is a non-destructive method requiring no sample preparation.

  • Analysis of styrene leached from polystyrene cups using GCMS coupled with Headspace (HS) sampler

    Styrene is considered as possible human carcinogen by the WHO and International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). Migration of styrene from polystyrene cups containing beverages has been observed. The objective of this study is to develop a sensitive, selective, accurate and reliable method for styrene determination using GCMS-HS to assess the risk involved in using polystyrene cups.

  • GC-MS Analysis of Phtalates: Comparison of GC Stationary Phase Performance

    Phthalates are ubiquitous in the environment and have attracted attention due to their potential adverse impact on human health. For this reason, detection and separation of phthalates has become a necessity. In this study, Restek Pro EZGC gas chromatographic modeling software was employed to determine the optimal stationary phases and conditions for phthalate GC-MS analysis.
