Laboratorios Levante - Chromotography

In the laboratory chromatography are performed on organic micro pollutants in food, water, sludge, waste and leachate by using standard and more sophisticated technical equipment.

All these tests are performed using the following equipment:

  • Gas chromatographs with mass spectrometric detector (ion trap and triple quadruple)
  • Gas chromatographs with FID detector
  • Liquid chromatographs (HPLC) with UV-Vis detectors
  • Liquid chromatographs (HPLC) with mass spectrometric detector (triple quadrupole)
  • GPC chromatographs

Chromatographic analysis currently performed in LTL:

  • Polluting organic compounds (acrylamides, volatile organic compounds VOCs, organotin compounds, PAH's, PCBs, trihalomethanes, etc.)
  • Waste treatment in food (pesticides, dithiocarbamates, glyphosate, ethephon, medicine residues, etc.)
  • Toxic natural (aflatoxins, ochratoxin A, patulin, desoxivalenol, fusarium toxin, zearelonona, etc.)
  • Preservatives and colors (benzoic acid, sorbic acid, sulfur dioxide, nitrates and nitrites, etc.)
  • Profile of fatty acids in oils / fats and edible food.
