SCIEX Explores Allergen Detection and Authenticity Testing of Food in New Webinar
Date:5/2/2017

Safety and authenticity of food are major global issues. With an estimated 150 million allergic consumers worldwide and approximately 17 million food allergens in the EU, contamination of food with allergens is one of the most urgent problems concerning food safety.

Current analytical approaches such as PCR and ELISA carry significant limitations concerning specificity and sensitivity. In recent years, mass spectrometry-based targeted proteomics has evolved into a promising alternative to overcome these shortcomings. This technique can also be applied to efficiently authenticate food.

In this webinar, sponsored by SCIEX, participants will gain a better understanding of the strategies to identify valid marker peptides for allergen detection and authenticity testing. They will also learn how to use of MRM3 to obtain optimal sensitivity and specificity in different food matrices.

The speaker for this webinar will be Dr. Jens Brockmeyer, a professor of analytical food chemistry at the University Stuttgart, in Stuttgart, Germany.

Brockmeyer studied food chemistry at the University of Muenster, Germany and received his doctorate in the field of protein biochemistry, molecular microbiology and molecular biology of EHEC. Since 2016 he has been a full professor for analytical food chemistry at the University of Stuttgart. The major focus of his group is the development of novel analytical approaches for the characterization and detection of food allergens and the authenticity of food.

LabRoots will host the webinar May 18, 2017, beginning at 6:00 a.m. PDT, 2:00 p.m. UK, 3:00 p.m. CET. To learn more about this event, the continuing education credits offered or to register for free, click here.
