This note presents a robust and rapid screening tool that can be used to automatically determine the identity and quality of food ingredients within a couple of minutes. The SQ Detector 2, along with the ASAP Probe and MarkerLynx XS Software data processing, were used to rapidly analyze edible oils. Four different types of oils were assessed and analyzed; three of which were omega-6 oils: evening primrose oil, starflower (borage) oil, and CoQ10 in sunflower oil; the fourth was omega-3 fish oil.
