Bruker Daltonics today 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 laboratories.
Since September 2008, thousands of

A five minute, accurate LC-MS/MS
analysis method has been developed by Bruker Daltonics’ food safety development laboratory in
Dr. Matthias Pelzing, Asia-Pacific Applications Manager for Bruker Daltonics, explained: “We recommend LC-MS/MS methods due to their straight-forward sample preparation, compared to GC-MS methods which often require sample derivatisation. With our new routine analysis method we have demonstrated that melamine can be detected down to trace levels of 0.05 ppb, and that it is possible to quantify melamine at concentrations relevant to various international food authorities in 5 minutes.”
Mr. Clive Seymour, Executive Vice President of Bruker Daltonics, commented: “Due to its robustness, ease of use, small footprint and lower cost, our HCT ion trap-based solution offers significant practical and operational advantages over traditional triple-quad MRM approaches. In addition, the superior full scan sensitivity of our unique HCT ion trap technology offers not only outstanding detection limits for melamine and CA, but also the option of full-scan identification of other unknown, new or modified food contaminants with superior sensitivity.”
The new Bruker Application Note # LCMS-49 on melamine and CA analysis is available in English, Chinese, Korean, Thai and Japanese, and can be down-loaded at www.bdal.com.
