Dioxin belongs to the group of persistent organic pollutants (POPs), environmental pollutants that take a long time to break down once in the environment. Dioxins are highly toxic and can cause cancer and developmental problems, and damage to the immune system. In this joint webinar from Shimadzu and BUCHI, learn more about dioxin analysis in food and environmental samples. Join Maren Sander, Product Manager for pressurized solvent extraction and parallel evaporation at BUCHI, as she explains how sample preparation can be achieved using pressurized solvent extraction. Waldemar Weber, Product Manager for GCMS at Shimadzu, discusses dioxin analysis using sample purification and GC-MS/MS. Finally, Dr. Peter Behnisch, Director at Biodetection Systems presents a case study on detecting dioxins and other POPs in food.
