VICAM in­tro­duces a new method for BPA de­tec­tion

Chemical Industry Digest - - News & Views -

VICAM , a Waters Busi­ness, in­tro­duced a sen­si­tive, ® ® pre­cise de­ter­mi­na­tion of Bisphe­nolA (BPA) for food and agri­cul­tural lab­o­ra­to­ries. VICAM’s BPATest™ quickly iso­lates and pu­ri­fies BPA for anal­y­sis from 0.1 to 50 parts per bil­lion in as lit­tle as ten min­utes to­tal prepa­ra­tion time.

BPA is a chem­i­cal which has been used to man­u­fac­ture food pack­ag­ing ma­te­ri­als and coat­ings. Re­search stud­ies in­di­cate that BPA may be an en­docrine dis­rup­tor and re­pro­duc­tive tox­i­cant and may also con­trib­ute to se­ri­ous dis­eases such as di­a­betes, heart dis­ease and even can­cer. To pro­tect hu­man health, the use of BPA in baby bot­tles, cups and in­fant for­mula pack­ag­ing is pro­hib­ited by law in the US, Canada, EU and sev­eral na­tions across Asia.

BPA Test pairs im­muno-affin­ity chro­matog­ra­phy with liq­uid chro­matog­ra­phy (HPLC, UPLC ) and flu

® ores­cence or mass spec­trom­e­try de­tec­tors to ac­cu­rately de­tect lev­els of BPA with a higher level of cer­tainty, with­out com­pro­mis­ing lab­o­ra­tory ef­fi­ciency and pro­duc­tiv­ity. The pro­pri­etary mon­o­clonal an­ti­body in VICAM’s im­muno-affin­ity col­umns ef­fi­ciently trans­forms test sam­ples into highly con­cen­trated BPA ex­tract. As a quan­ti­ta­tive method that out­per­forms solid phase ex­trac­tion and “di­lute-and-shoot” tech­niques in both sen­si­tiv­ity and speci­ficity.
