Bruker Daltonics has released a robust, fast and
highly sensitive high-capacity ion trap HCT solution for the detection and
quantification of melamine and cyanuric acid (CA) by food safety
A five minute, accurate LC-MS/MS analysis method has been developed by Bruker
Daltonics' food safety development laboratory in Australia.
easy-to-use and cost-effective method for the extraction, detection and
quantification of melamine and CA uses the speed, sensitivity and quantitative
capabilities of the high-capacity ion-trap mass spectrometer HCTultraTM,
hyphenated with a Dionex UltiMateTM 3000 LC system and AcclaimTM Mixed-Mode
The method is capable of detecting melamine in various
matrixes well below the concentrations required by various food safety and other
regulatory authorities around the world, such as the limits set by the US Food
and Drug Administration (FDA) of 1 ppm for melamine and cyanuric acid in infant
formula, and 2.5 ppm for other foods.
The new Bruker Application Note
#LCMS-49 on melamine and CA analysis is available in English, Chinese, Korean,
Thai and Japanese, and can be downloaded at Bruker's website
