New York, USA – July 21, 2021 – Earlier this month, Alfa Chemistry announces to offer a wide selection of analytical standards and certified reference materials for the use in the food and beverage, cosmetic, and personal care industry.
As the regulatory requirements are constantly becoming stricter, higher standards are set for product documentation and quality control. While conducting analytical testing, only the analytical standards that have a whole impurity profile and metabolism path can meet the requirements of qualified analytical documentation.
The newly added product line of food and cosmetic component standards at Alfa Chemistry covers: allergen standards, amine standards, colorant standards, flavor and fragrance standards, genetically modified organism (GMO) standards, preservative standards, processing & packaging contaminant standards, sweetener standards, UV blockers and more. All are of high quality and have gained a good reputation among customers from analytical laboratories.
Allergen standards are high purity reference materials used in allergen analysis. Common allergen standard substances mainly include ovotransferrin, ovomucoid, a-lactoalbumin, ß-lactoglobulin and more.
Colorant standards are widely used in the analysis of food and cosmetic ingredients mainly to improve the color of products. The colorant standards offered by Alfa Chemistry include Maize GMO Standard ERM-BF411, Maize GMO Standard ERM-BF412, EH92-527-1 Potato (blank), Sugar beet GMO standard for H7-1, Cotton seed GMO standard GHB119, Soya 305423 GMO standard ERM-BF426 and more.
Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) Standards
GMO standards are applied primarily to the detection of genetically modified organisms. Many transgenic detection methods require the use of GMO standards.
Preservative standards are commonly used in photo spectrophotometry, thin layer chromatography, high performance liquid chromatography, gas chromatography, capillary electrochromatography, micellar electrokinetic capillary chromatography and other detection methods to identify or analyze the types and contents of preservatives.
Processing & Packaging Contaminant Standards
Processing & packaging contaminant standards, including copper standard solution, cadmium standard solution, ditridecyl phthalate, mono-benzyl phthalate, acrylamide, bisphenol A, methyl phthalate, phthalic acid, and isopentoic acid, can be used in the calibration instruments, evaluation analytical methods, quantitative analysis, and qualitative analysis.
Sweetener standards are widely used in many analytical methods including high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), high performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS), gas chromatography (GC), gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) and others.
In order to ensure the quality and safety of cosmetics, many countries and organizations have strictly restricted the type and content of UV blockers. The most commonly used UV blockers standards include benzophenone-9, ethyl cinnamate, ethylhexyl triazone, dioxybenzone, benzylidene camphor sulfonic acid, 4-aminobenzoic acid, and ethyl cinnamate.
