Solving challenges in the determination of pyrrolizidine alkaloids via LC-MS/MS and LC-IM-HRMS
Waters Corporation: Solving challenges in the determination of pyrrolizidine alkaloids via LC-MS/MS and LC-IM-HRMS
Accelerate time to outcome and achieve efficiency in your laboratory
Contaminations can enter the food-chain at various stages. This has led to more rigorous regulations for the testing of contaminants in exported, imported, and domestic food and beverages.
In this webinar series, we will discuss how our latest solutions meet industry demands, such as high throughput, enhanced sensitivity requirements, increased accuracy, and compliance.
Episode 2: Solving challenges in the determination of pyrrolizidine alkaloids via LC-MS/MS and LC-IM-HRMS
With the increasing demand for food and more rigorous regulations, there is more pressure for laboratories to operate efficient, sensitive, and selective analysis methods.
Amongst various food toxins, analysis of plant alkaloids is a prerequisite nowadays. This of course, presents multiple challenges for testing laboratories.
During this session we will discuss:
Can critical pairs of isomers of Pyrrolizidine alkaloids be chromatographically separated?
What efficient clean-up strategies can be utilized to remove matrix co-extractives?
Can techniques like ion mobility be utilized to separate isomers?
Join us for the food safety webinar series, where you can gain insights from industry experts and ask your questions in our live Q&A session. We are really looking forward to discussing this topic further with you.

Presenter: Laura Carbonell Rozas (Postdoctoral Researcher, University of Almeria (Spain))
Laura Carbonell Rozas is a Postdoctoral researcher at the University of Almeria (Spain), within the research group “Analytical Chemistry of Contaminants”. Over the past seven years, Laura has been working on developing novel strategies for the determination of a wide range of food and environmental contaminants, including mycotoxins and alkaloids. In her research, Laura also pioneered the investigation of “greener” alternatives to conventional sample preparation methods. She obtained her PhD in Analytical Chemistry at the University of Granada (Spain) and she has worked with multiple international organisations, including LABERCA (France), CONICET (Argentina), and the University of Parma (Italy).
