Food Analysis Facilities and Services
We have the capability and capacity to run numerous analyses on foods and beverages. For the analysis of flavours and aromas (volatile compounds), we have one gas chromatography/olfactometer/mass spectrometer (HP/Agilent 6890N). This system is compatible with SPME (solid-phase microextraction), SPDE (solid phase dynamic extraction) and liquid injection. We also have a gas chromatograph (HP/Agilent 5890N) equipped with stir bar sorptive extraction (SBSE) capabilities.
We also have capabilities to run full characterization of foods and beverages. This includes the analysis of fats and proteins. For carbohydrate analysis, we have access to high performance liquid chromatography to allow for the identification of specific carbohydrates. We also have the capabilities to run nutrient analysis, as well as other general food and beverages characterizations.
