Analytical platform based on a UHPLC-MS/TOF system to identify, quantify, and comprehensively study key compounds for strengthening the advancement of research on food safety, quality, and toxicity in Chile (FONDEQUIP 2015 – 2017)

Food contamination with chemical substances is a critical issue related to public health, affecting both national consumption and food exports. Safety is the only link in the food chain that is non-transferable and non-negotiable. The team led by Professor Franco Pedreschi is applying analytical techniques to identify and measure key metabolites associated with food safety.
