Customer Case Studies
Improving Standards for Vitamin Analysis using Mass Detection
In this case study, learn how Amway in partnership with Waters has developed industry-standard methods for vitamin analysis using the ACQUITY QDa Mass Detector, ACQUITY UPLC, and Empower CDS Software.
Real-time Sample Recognition with LiveID Software
LiveID™ software enables the real-time classification of samples using direct-analysis mass spectrometry (MS). Information is provided to the user immediately at the time of analysis enabling informed, real-time, decision making and removing doubt.
A Novel Approach to Overcoming Sample Complexity in Food Contaminant Testing
RADAR is an extremely useful tool in the food testing laboratory for the development of sample preparation and chromatographic methods, as well as for monitoring final methods when in use.
Rapid Determination of Cinnamomum Species Using the DART QDa System with LiveID for Ground Spice
In this application note, we demonstrate the use of the DART QDa System with LiveID Software to rapidly determine the species level identity of cinnamon for label claim verification and authenticity purposes for the food industry.
Determination of Highly Polar Cationic Pesticides and Plant Growth Regulators in Food Using UPLC-MS
Organic wheat flour, cucumber, and apple, were extracted following the QuPPe method to assess various performance factors of the UPLC-MS/MS method such as calibration linearity, retention time stability, method precision, and trueness.
Determination of 208 Pesticide Residues and their Metabolites in Foods using Oasis PRiME HLB and Xevo TQ-GC
In this application note, foodstuffs of plant origin were further cleaned using Oasis PRiME HLB following QuEChERS extraction and run on the Xevo TQ-GC to quantify 208 pesticides and their metabolites in fruits and vegetables.
