Food producers, importers, and regulators must continuously stay alert to the potential of finding various contaminants in food products and ingredients. As an example of this, concerns have emerged in early 2012 surrounding contaminated orange juice imported into the United States, with juice samples testing positive for the fungicide carbendazim. LC-MS/MS provides testing laboratories the capability to identify and quantify contaminants in food samples immediately to protect consumers from emerging contaminants of concern.
What Participants Will Learn:
• That LC-MS/MS provides testing laboratories the capability to identify and quantify contaminants in food samples immediately
