Onergy endoCube provides a way to overcome a common difficulty in recording ’actual’ product temperature in refrigerated environment displays.
Dionex has released a method for simple determination of sialic acids that are present in infant formula in the pmol range. Application Note 266: Determination of Sialic Acids Using UHPLC with Fluorescence Detection demonstrates that N-acetylated sialic acids can be determined and O-acetylated sialic acids can be identified in infant formula samples using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with fluorescence detection following acid hydrolysis and 1,2-diamino-4,5-methylenedioxybenzene dihydrochloride (DMB) derivatisation. By using a water:acetonitrile gradient, high resolution of the sialic acids can be obtained in a 20 min analysis time, compared to the common 40 min isocratic method. The described assay uses a short-format Acclaim RSLC 120 C18 column that allows fast run times. The lower flow rate and shorter run time requires less acetonitrile than other published methods. The sensitivity of the Dionex FLD-3400RS fluorescence detector easily allows determination of sialic acids in the infant formula that are present in the pmol range. The sensitivity provides for simple determination of Neu5Ac, Neu5Gc, and O-acetylated sialic acids in the derivatised samples.

The potential for food contamination, economic adulteration, and other related food safety issues are leading to an increased awareness of the important role that food testing laboratories play in ensuring the safety and quality of our food supply. The requirements for sophisticated instruments and well-trained, experienced analysts in food safety laboratories are essential factors in making certain that food is safe from chemical contamination.
The GreenLight range of food safety tests provide easy, same-day detection and enumeration of bacteria in food samples by measuring bacterial oxygen consumption (bacterial respiration) and equating oxygen consumption to microbial load.
The Pulsar Guard 2010 sensor detects structure-borne acoustic signals caused by the movement of material. This movement causes impacts and frictional contact with a containing face, eg, the inside of a pipe. The sensor is fastened to the outside of the structure and its high frequency detection picks up these signals, which are often undetectable to the human ear. The high-frequency detection allows use in environments where there is a high degree of machinery noise or process noise, without interference. The sensor’s non-invasive nature allows easy fit to most pipes, chutes or feed mechanisms without stopping the process.
The CarboPac SA10 column has been specifically designed for the fast, high-resolution analysis of food and beverage carbohydrates. The column is composed of a macroporous substrate coated with a strong anion-exchange layer of latex nano beads which provide high capacity and rapid high-resolution separations.
