Joint Western & Eastern Canada Workshop

Pickering Laboratories participated in the first joint Western & Eastern Canadian Trace Organic Workshop, held in Guelph, Ontario.   We shared a table with our Canadian distributor, Chromatographic Specialties. The meeting was well attended and there were many interesting talks. The purpose of the meeting is to share the latest methods and information about trace analysis — for a wide range of analytes from pesticides, to dioxins, to PCBs, flame retardants, and surfactants.

We presented two posters:

Cleanup and Determination of Aflatoxins in Peanuts and Peanut Butter using Immunoaffinity Cleanup with HPLC- Post-column UVE Photochemical Derivatization


Glyphosate analysis in soy beans, corn and sunflower seeds by HPLC with post-column derivatization and fluorescence detection

In addition to the two posters, we had the latest information on the FREESTYLE Sample Preparation system, and in particular the ThermELUTE module, for rapid and sensitive cleanup and analysis of Aflatoxins and Ochratoixn A.
