Recently a threat to contaminate New Zealand origin milk and milk derived ingredients with sodium monofluoroacetate (1080) was reported.  As a result the regulatory authorities in New Zealand and China have mandated testing of milk ingredients and products to ensure the safety of these products.  Two  LC-MS/MS based analytical methods were quickly developed and validated at Abbott Nutrition.  Details of these two methods, as well as their validation results are presented. The benefits of UPLC coupled with tandem quadrupole MS in the analysis and the method development will be highlighted.

Particpants Will Learn:

  • Benefits of UPLC and MS for method development and high throughput analysis
  • Two UPLC/MS methods for high throughput analysis of compound 1080 in nutritional products
  • Method validation process

Who Should Attend:  

  • Scientists involved in contaminant analysis in milk powder or infant formula products
  • Food testing laboratory managers/ directors /supervisors
  • Governmental regulators
