Workshop – April 2010


Application of ambient mass spectrometry for the analysis of food contaminants/residues and metabolomic fingerprinting

Seminar and training

26-27 April 2010

Organised by
Department of Food Chemistry and Analysis of The Institute of Chemical Technology, Prague, Czech Republic

Cooperating institutions:
The Food and Environment Research Agency, Sand Hutton, UK
and
RIKILT – Institute of Food Safety, Wageningen, The Netherlands

Supporting institution:
KR Analytical Ltd, Sandbach, UK
This training is supported by the European Commission funded Integrated Projects:
FOOD-CT-2004-06988 “BIOCOP (New Technologies to Screen Multiple Chemical Contaminants in Foods)” coordinated by Queen’s University (Belfast, UK)
FP7-211326-CP “CONffIDENCE (Contaminants in Food and Feed: Inexpensive Detection for Control of Exposure)” coordinated by RIKILT – Institute of Food Safety (Wageningen, The Netherlands)
On April 26-27, 2010, a training course on “Application of ambient mass spectrometry for the analysis of food contaminants/residues and metabolomic fingerprinting” was co-organised by CONffIDENCE and BIOCOP projects in Prague, Czech Republic.

This training course provided participants with knowledge in the application of ambient mass spectrometry for the rapid analysis of food contaminants (e.g. pesticide residues, mycotoxins). The benefits and limitations of a number of different ambient mass spectrometry techniques were discussed, including Direct Analysis in Real Time (DART) and the Atmospheric Solids Analysis Probe (ASAP). The training focused on the theory and practical application of (a) DART coupled to a high resolution mass spectrometer (time of flight, TOFMS or orbitrap MS), and (b) Atmospheric Solids Analysis Probe (ASAP) coupled to a quadrupole/TOFMS.
