Ambient Mass Spectrometry

Bia Analytical is delighted to announce the roll out of ground breaking technology for meat authenticity analysis that will empower businesses to make quick decisions and maintain provide additional confidence in the integrity of their products.

Developed over a 10-year period by Professor Chris Elliott and his team at the Institute for Global Food Security at Queen’s University Belfast, the technique known as Ambient Mass Spectrometry (‘AMS’) not only can identify the species of meat, but it can also identify the breed, where the meat was produced, whether or not it is organic, and its maturation and even eating quality. All of these parameters contained in a single test truly represent a ground-breaking advance.
