Shimadzu OnDemand Webcast: Food Contact Materials PFAS analysis by TQ
Interesting introductory webinar on Food Contact Materials (FCM) safety and analyses presented thanks to the courtesy of our partners at the Shimadzu Food and Consumer Products Group.
Food Contact Materials (FCM) are any materials that come in contact with food during processing, storage, preparation or serving. The safety of these FCMs must be evaluated as they can migrate into the food supply and contaminate the food with compounds like Per-and Polyfluorinated substances (PFAS), mineral oils (MOSH/MOAH), and leachables/extractables from plastics containers (bisphenol A, heavy metals).
This webinar offers insights into European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations.
Experts will lead a discussion on food packaging contaminants including:
- Per-and Polyfluorinated substances (PFAS)
- Mineral oils (MOSH/MOAH)
- Heavy Metals
- Extractables and leachables
- Other contaminants
There will also be an overview of analytical techniques and the newest instrumentation used to monitor trace level food impurities:
- online LC-GC by coupling LC with Nexera GC-2030
- ICP-MS analysis using ICP-MS-2030
- Time of Flight analysis using LCMS-9030 QTOF
- Direct injections using LCMS-8050 and LCMS-8060 series
