Process contaminants of the food industry were evaluated by the EFSA (European Food Safety Authority). Zinsser Analytic invented a new system for contaminant analysis in food and oil samples in collaboration with a food quality and safety lab, addressing your everyday workflow challenges with the following substances:
With the standard pipetting tips almost every liquid can be handled. The gripper for racks and vials can handle every needed vial and rack type, as well as rack lids. Sonication of vials could be performed with the incorporated ultrasonic bath. The needed centrifugation steps are performed with the centrifuge underneath the workbench with a corresponding cut-out for the gripper to install the racks with the centrifuge.
The methods applied can be changed, depending on the certified process desired: Alkaline transesterification of glycidol to 3-MCPD (DGF method, Cd 29c-13), alkaline transesterification of glycidol to 3-MBPD (SGS 3-in-1 method, Cd 29b-13), acidic transesterification (Unilever combined method, Cd 29a-13) and single compound analysis.
