LC/MS & GC/MS Ruling out Other Methods in Food Toxin Testing

Food Toxins are majorly detected by Chromatography, says RNCOS.


Noida, UP -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/22/2014 -- The increase in the food trade across the nations is increasing the scope for wider spread of food contaminants. With the rising contamination in the food items, the food safety concerns are booming. Food contaminants like pathogens, pesticides, toxins, GMO, and certain other unwanted particles are creating a threat to consumer health, leading from mild allergy to fatal effects. According to a new report by RNCOS “Global Food Safety Testing Market Outlook 2018”, natural food toxins are posing threat to human health and hence are occupying a fair share in global food contaminant testing market.

According to our report, food toxins are chemicals that are naturally produced by living organisms. These are not harmful to the organisms themselves but may be toxic to other creatures, including humans, when eaten. Regardless of measures taken by regulators and food producers to protect consumers from natural food toxins, consumption of small levels of these materials is unavoidable. The countries across the globe mostly prefer GC-MS and LC-MS (Gas/liquid chromatography-Mass spectrometry) for detecting food toxins. In chromatography, the difference in the chemical properties among molecules in a mixture promotes separation of the molecules. On the other hand, mass spectrometer captures, ionizes, accelerates, deflects, and detects the ionized molecules separately using their mass-to-charge ratio. Owing to the high specificity and global acceptance of the method, GC-MS and LC-MS is dominating the methods for food toxin testing.
