Food authenticity testing using elemental profiling

by | Articles, Food Analysis

Do you need help with establishing food authenticity? If so, elemental profiling using ICP-MS, ICP-OES, and MP-AES could be the answer as an approach for geographic authentication of various foods and beverages. Learn more by watching the following presentation. 

Why should you view this presentation?

This webinar is suitable for lab managers and lab personnel interested in elemental analysis and using statistical tools to get more out of elemental data.

By viewing this presentation you will learn:

  • how to use elemental profiles obtained using an ICP-MS, ICP-OES, and MP-AES coupled with statistical software like Mass Profiler Professional (MPP)
  • how to determine if the variance between samples is adequate to distinguish growing origin
  • how to gain insights into how statistical profiling can provide insights into food authenticity or consistency.
