Gas Chromatography – Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS)

The analytical expertise offered by CAL also includes more investigative methods. GC-MS is employed to assay products for the presence of organic contaminants and taints as well as purity checks. It is useful for the analysis of consumer complaints relating to food, cosmetics and drugs. GC-MS methods employ either broad-scan analysis when looking for unknown contaminants or target analysis for known compounds using specific assay techniques. GC-MS has provided CAL with an important tool for forensic analysis, where poisoning or illicit drug taking is suspected in relation to animals or humans.
