LANGERWEHE, Germany — Food industry, government and contract testing laboratories performing food safety analysis can now benefit from a new portfolio that aims to offer cost-effective, robust solid-phase extraction (SPE) solutions to support food safety workflows and meet regulatory requirements across Europe, Asia and the Americas.
The Thermo Scientific QuEChERS product line aims to provide an easy-to-use, sample preparation workflow, with sample extraction and cleanup kits that allow for comprehensive pesticide residues extraction to produce cleaner extracts for chromatographic analysis. With pre-weighed, high-quality salts and sorbents, specifically designed to eliminate salt clumping during sample preparation, laboratories should be able to achieve reliable and reproducible results, allowing them to meet regulatory food safety requirements. The collection includes 48 new products for Original, Association of Official Analytical Chemists (AOAC) and European methods and are available in pouches or prefilled tubes, giving users a wide range of choice to find the sample preparation solutions to best suit their needs.
"Regulatory requirements for food safety analysis are becoming more and more stringent. The new QuEChERS collection provides a comprehensive sample preparation workflow that give laboratories confidence that their analysis is reliable and repeatable, and will ensure foodstuffs meet the safety regulations," said Ken Meadows, global product manager, sample preparation products, Thermo Fisher Scientific.
