Food safety analysis workflow

Thermo Scientific Life Science MS not only has a long tradition of technology, but also continues to innovate. Quadrupole mass analysis of true conjugate hyperboloids that fits the perfect theoretical electric field of a textbook is used on all TSQ® triple quadrupole mass spectrometers. Since launching the world's first triple quadrupole MS/MS (TSQ®) mass spectrometer in 1980, TSQ® triple quadrupole mass spectrometer has been widely used in environmental protection, agriculture, quarantine, food safety, etc. Analytical testing, fully capable of testing routine testing of large-volume samples of crops, livestock and poultry products, dairy products and related processed foods, such as pesticide residues in food, veterinary drug residues, mycotoxins, additives, Nutritional Supplements and organic pollutants And other projects to help you easily meet the increasingly stringent regulatory requirements.



5-nitroimidazoles are a class of drugs with 5-nitroimidazole ring structure, which have anti-protozoal and antibacterial activity. Daily tests involve animal-derived samples such as livestock, aquatic products, bee products, and dairy products. This article refers to SN/T 1928-2007, GB/T 21318-2007, GB/T 22949-2008, GB/T 21995-2008, Ministry of Agriculture 1025 Announcement-22-2008, Ministry of Agriculture No. 1486 Announcement-4-2010, SN/T 2579-2010, simplified from GB/T 23410-2009, GB/T 23407-2009, GB/T 23406-2009, is an instrument method for rapid detection of various nitroimidazole drug residues, internal standard method Quantitative.
