Food safety laboratories can use the new Thermo Scientific Dioxin Analyzer to meet evolving regulatory expectations for the confirmatory analysis of dioxins and other POPs. The new comprehensive GC-MS-based analytical workflow brings together the Thermo Scientific Triple Quadrupole TSQ 9000 GC-MS/MS system with the Thermo Scientific Advanced Electron Ionization (AEI) source, capillary GC column, system suitability check, standard solutions, software, and comprehensive user guidelines for reliable and cost-effective assessment of food and feed for dioxins and POPs.

Enhancing productivity and throughput while sustaining sensitivity and performance, the new Thermo Scientific DFS Software Package for the Thermo Scientific DFS Magnetic Sector GC-HRMS provides food safety laboratories with a fully automated solution for the quantitative analysis of dioxins and other POPs in various matrices. The DFS Software Package enables the automation of daily instrument operations, enhancing ease-of-use with calculation transparency for full data confidence. 

"Food testing laboratories are at the frontline of the global food chain and must screen food and feed for an array of contaminants to monitor its integrity and safeguard consumers—but this presents significant analytical and resource challenges," said Khalil Divan, senior director, marketing, food and beverage, Thermo Fisher Scientific. "The launch of the Dioxin Analyzer and the DFS Software Package for the DFS Magnetic Sector GC-HRMS demonstrates our continued commitment to help customers protect the integrity of the global food chain by providing access to advanced, analytical solutions that meets their individual requirements for the accurate quantification of dioxins and other POPs within any food or feed sample matrix."

Alongside the collection of GC-MS solutions, Thermo Fisher is hosting a seminar series with company and industry experts. The seminars will highlight how the latest developments in chromatography and mass spectrometry are enhancing the quantitation of dioxins and other POPs within the routine laboratory environment.
