Antibiotics are used in the livestock industry for the growth and health of the animals. With the health-related implications this can bring, it is only right that food industry players encourage and ensure antibiotic-free ingredients in their products.

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.

Ensuring safety in beverages is important for consumer health, and one such way to do this for manufacturers is through mass spectrometry during beverage processing. By Vincent Lau, field marketing manager, Southeast Asia, SCIEX

The first model in the X-Series solution by SCIEX, the X500R QTOF provides a robust, high performance, high resolution mass spectrometry system designed for routine use.

Packaged in a simple benchtop design, the engineering on the mass spec system is tailored specifically for routine testing labs tasked with detecting low levels of compounds in complex samples, or requiring profiling the composition of samples full of unknowns.

Armed with new software, the system enables users to detect concerning pollutants, identify forensic compounds and test food for contaminants, within a short time period, while providing an accurate diagnosis.
