COMPARISON OF TWO METHODS FOR THE ANALYSIS OF ORGANIC ACID

This poster presents a comparison of the AOAC method with a new UPLC-MS/MS procedure that offers much better specificity than the UV approach and similar or better detection limits to the enzymatic methods. Using Waters UPLC technology it also significantly reduces analysis times, therefore improving sample throughput.
