Sciex has launched their SWATH data independent acquisition technology for analytical scientists working across all application areas. This offers simultaneous and comprehensive identification and quantification of virtually every detectable compound in a sample, from a single analysis.
The system has unique capabilities for quantitative accuracy, offering exceptionally high reproducibility across multiple samples with wide dynamic range. Importantly, the technology enables the creation of a permanent digital record of quantitative MS/MS data for the entire sample.
The system can be used in food-testing laboratories to survey ingredients and food products for quality and safety, allowing scientists to completely survey samples for every detectable chemical contaminant present while also ensuring rapid, reliable detection of low abundance compounds that are usually masked by dominant compounds in a sample.
With high profile food safety incidents in recent years putting the spotlight on legislation and regulations, manufacturers have to ensure greater due diligence to safeguard their businesses, especially in Southeast Asia, where the standards differ from country to country.
