iMethod™ Application for Azo and Sudan Dyes Version 1.1 for Cliquid® Software
For research use only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
Quantitate and confirm the presence of Sudan and azo dyes in foods
This SCIEX iMethod™ Application allows you to analyze for 13 azo dyes, 6 Sudan dyes, Dimethyl Yellow and Para Red in spices and sauces accurately in a single analysis. Included with this method is a Phenomenex LUNA 5 µm C8 column (150 x 2 mm).
Just download a method, add your sample, and you're ready to go
iMethod™ Applications for food testing provide instant LC-MS/MS methods, enabling you to generate accurate and precise results faster. Simply download a lab-proven method from the web or a CD into Cliquid® Software and run your sample. All the instrument parameters are downloaded upon installation. Everything you need to start running a test immediately is included: sample preparation protocols, optimized MS and LC parameters, integration parameters, reporting templates, and documentation.
Quantitate and confirm 13 azo dyes, 6 Sudan dyes, dimethyl yellow and Para Red in food
The iMethod™ Application provides a method for the analysis of azo dyes in food including the Sudan dyes (Sudan I, Sudan II, Sudan III and Sudan IV) as well as Para Red, Fast Garnet GBC, Orange II, Rhodamine B and Dimethyl Yellow. According to International Agency for Research on Cancer, azo dyes have been classified as potential carcinogenic substances. As a result, azo dyes are banned as food additives in the European Union.
Samples are prepared by homogenization, centrifugation, extraction, dilution, and examples of procedures are provided with the method. Deuterated internal standards of Sudan I and Sudan IV are added during sample preparation to monitor sample recovery. More in-depth sample preparation, instrument configuration, and setting information is included with this iMethod™ Application, upon purchase.
The SCIEX iMethod™ Application for the analysis of azo dyes is configured for use on the SCIEX 3200 and 4000 Series instrumentation.
The list of available iMethod™ Applications located in the iMethod™ Store is continually updated with the newest user-contributed and SCIEX lab-proven methods, so you can take immediate advantage of the latest advances. All iMethod™ Applications for food analysis are available for individual purchase or as part of one of our starter packs for food safety testing.
