Swiss develop faster test for melamine
Swiss researchers have developed a faster technique to detect the presence of
melamine in liquids, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (EPFZ)
Detecting melamine in liquid previously took anything from between 20 and 60
minutes, but the Swiss team's new method has cut the time to 30
The scientists used a technique known as mass spectrometry to
cut testing time, said Renato Zenobi, professor of analytical chemistry at the
Organic Chemistry Laboratory at EPFZ.
Mass spectrometry is a technique
used to measure the masses of atoms and molecules in a material or
