Application Note: Rapid Measurement of Olive Oil Adulteration with Soybean Oil with Minimal Sample Preparation Using DSA/TOF
27 March 2014

This application note demonstrates that the AxION Direct Sample Analysis (DSA™) system integrated with the AxION 2 Time-of-Flight (TOF) mass spectrometer can be used for rapid screening of adulteration of olive oil with soybean oil. The advantages of this method, compared to conventional techniques, are that no chromatography is required, the combination of direct sampling from the olive oil is done with minimal or no sample preparation and mass spectra results are generated in seconds.
