Agilent Technologies To Host Seminars At International Dioxin Symposium In Madrid

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today announced it will host two seminars at the Dioxin 2014 International Symposium in Madrid, Spain. Food safety experts Dr. Peter Fürst, of Germany’s Chemical and Veterinary Analytical Institute (CVUA-MEL), and Dr. Jean-François (Jef) Focant, professor of organic and biological analytical chemistry at the University of Liège, will present data pertaining to recent dioxin screening and confirmation regulations enacted by the European Commission. Seminars will be conducted Monday, Sept. 1, and Thursday, Sept. 4.

The announcement comes just as EC regulations have changed to include provisions for validating triple quadrupole GC/MS technology as a confirmatory method for identifying dioxins, furans (PCDD/Fs) and dioxin-like PCBs (DL-PCBs) in food and animal feed ( EC No. 589/2014 and 709/2014, respectively).

“This new legislation represents an important step in further protecting the global food chain through the ability of more labs to perform testing,” said professor Focant. “In our lab we have already proven that a method applied on an Agilent 7000C Triple Quadrupole GC/MS System meets official EC requirements for the confirmatory analysis of PCDD/Fs and DL-PCBs in vegetable oil. The validation will be extended to other matrices in the near future.”

Seminars

At a luncheon seminar on Monday, Dr. Fürst will present GC-MS/MS: More Ions Means Much More than Lower Detection Limits—Application to Demanding Dioxin Analysis in Food Samples.

At a luncheon seminar on Thursday, Dr. Focant will present Full Validation of a GC-MS/MS Confirmatory Method for Dioxins Analysis Following New European Regulations.

Dioxins and dioxin-like compounds are highly toxic environmental contaminants known as persistent organic pollutants (POPs). By-products of industrial and some natural processes, they are found throughout the world and accumulate in the fatty tissue of animals. Chronic exposure to these substances can cause cancer, reproductive and developmental problems, and serious immune diseases.
