Agilent Technologies is to host two seminars at the Dioxin 2014 International Symposium, taking place in Madrid, Spain, on 31 August to 5 September 2014.

The seminars follow the European Commission's recent approval of triple quadrupole GC/MS technology as a confirmatory method for identifying dioxins, furans and dioxin-like PCBs in food and animal feed. The first seminar will take place on Monday 1 September, with Peter Fürst from Germany’s Chemical and Veterinary Analytical Institute giving a presentation entitled 'GC-MS/MS: More Ions Means Much More than Lower Detection Limits – Application to Demanding Dioxin Analysis in Food Samples'. The second seminar will take place on Thursday 4 September, with Jean-François Focant from the University of Liège in Belgium giving a presentation entitled 'Full Validation of a GC-MS/MS Confirmatory Method for Dioxins Analysis Following New European Regulations'.

'Traditionally, only a limited number of laboratories around the world have had access to the sophisticated methodologies necessary for dioxins and POPs analysis,” said John Lee, global market manager of Agilent’s Food Science business. 'With new regulations and new methods to more easily implement other key stages like extraction and clean-up, we now see that many more food, environmental and agricultural labs can readily perform rapid, affordable, high-volume dioxin screening and confirmation with Agilent’s GC/MS/MS solutions.'
