Fungicide residue concentration found by GC evaluation

Date: Nov 8, 2017

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

Grapes tend to suffer from a number of fungal diseases, so are often treated with fungicides, which can leave behind potentially harmful residues. Scientists from Guizhou University in China have developed a new GC-MS/MS method that can simultaneously assay the residues of two fungicides, boscalid and fludioxonil, in grapes and soil.

Clever chemometrics catches funny honey cheats

Date: Nov 1, 2017

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

Honey commands a variety of prices, depending in part on the source of the nectar from which it is derived, which may lead to fraudulent false labelling. Scientists from the Chinese Academy of Inspection and Quarantine in Beijing and Agilent Technologies (China) have devised a new method for detecting the source of honey samples, using GC-MS combined with chemometric methods.

Drink drug’s determination in hair described

Date: Nov 1, 2017

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

The anti-spasticity pharmaceutical baclofen is being investigated as a possible treatment for alcoholics, but compliance with the course of treatment can be a problem. Researchers from the Raymond Poincaré Hospital and Necker Hospital (both in Paris) have developed a new method of measuring baclofen in the hair of treated alcoholics, using LC/MS to determine how much of the drug has been taken.
