Method Validation for Multiresidue Analysis Based on LC Quadrupole Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry
High-Resolution Accurate Mass (HRAM) Mass Spectrometry, based on e.g. Time-of-Flight (TOF) technology, has considerably improved the possibilities of multiresidue methods, particularly in terms of unlimited-scope of analytes and highest possible level of identification confidence. In this presentation, the full validation of a LC-Q-TOF multiresidue method for 272 pesticides in food products using the NL-method (lettuce and orange) and QuEChERS-method (chicken meat) for extraction (and cleanup), respectively, will be presented. The fulfilment of the EU AQC SANTE Document validation requirements will be shown.

REIMS - A New, Novel Ambient Ionisation Technique
Attendees will hear about a new, novel ambient ionisation technique known as REIMS and how it has been utilised to analyse and assess multiple aspects of fraud associated with fish and meat products. The ambient nature of the technique circumvents sample preparation whilst enabling near-instantaneous results to be obtained. Thus, REIMS should provide a paradigm shift across authenticity applications, both within the supply chain and also post retail.

Food Allergen and Gluten Analysis – Horses for Courses?
Allergens have been on the plates of many regulators for more than a decade. With the always-limited budgets of food producers’ quality assurance departments, how can the absence of all allergens be ensured, bearing in mind that quality control departments also need to look after many other parameters like natural toxins, pathogens, residues and food-born contaminants. Is there one method that is cost-efficient and reliable? What could be a good strategy to spend the quality assurance budget most usefully?

PDMS-Overcoating of SPME Fibers for Improved Extraction from Complex Food Samples
By applying a layer of PDMS coating over the adsorbent coating, large matrix components are repelled or can easily be washed off, while the smaller analytes of interest can pass through the outer PDMS layer and will be retained by the adsorbent. This work will compare the lifetime of overcoated to conventional adsorbent fiber coatings for complex matrices such as spaghetti sauce and show further application examples.
