Mass Spectrometry in Food Safety Summary

Mass Spectrometry in Food Safety: Methods and Protocols by Jerry Zweigenbaum

As a key component of human survival, a safe and sufficient food supply is essential for a healthy and productive population throughout the world, so assurance that the food supply is clean and free of harmful substances is a global concern. In Mass Spectrometry in Food Safety: Methods and Protocols, experts in the field provide context to the subject through reviews of regulations in various countries, the current state-of-the art, and specific, detailed scientific methods being employed today. The volume thoroughly covers the key areas in food safety, such as detection of low level chemical residues, pesticide analysis aided by chromatographic techniques, and the revealing of mycotoxins and chemical contaminants from packaging materials. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology (TM) series format, method chapters contain introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Pertinent and cutting-edge, Mass Spectrometry in Food Safety: Methods and Protocols serves researchers with both understanding and appreciation for the contribution of mass spectrometry and its vital application to food testing and food safety.

Mass Spectrometry in Food Safety Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book promises to include regulations that drive inspection and measurement globally, to review the state-of-the-art for measuring contaminants in food, and to feature key tips and implementation advice from experts in the field. ... there is much excellent content in this book that will certainly be of use to those applying mass spectrometry to solve various problems related to food safety." (Simon Hird, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Vol. 403 (2), April, 2012)

"The book is rightly opened by an overview of the European union regulations, the area where the most up-to-date regulations have been developed. ... histo- and cytochemists involved with human and veterinary health topics will benefit from reading this book where a special attention is payed to the chronic toxicity exposures that occur when food quality is not of the highest level." (CarloAlberto Redi, European Journal of Histochemistry, Vol. 56, 2012)
