Bruker Daltonics recently released a high-capacity ion trap solution for the detection and quantification of melamine and cyanuric acid in food safety laboratories.
In 2007, petfood, animal feed wheat gluten and other protein-based foods were found to contain residues of melamine and cyanuric acid.
According to a press release, a five minute, LC-MS/MS analysis method will extract, detect and quantify melamine and cyanuric acid using the high-capacity ion trap mass spectrometer, HCTultra, hyphenated with a Dionex UltiMate 3000 LC system and Acclaim Mixed-Mode WAX-1 column.
