PAHs

Ready-to-use kits for the analysis of PAHS from fatty food such as oil.

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are a large group of organic compounds with two or more fused aromatic rings and are known to be cancer causing agents.

Human beings are exposed to PAHs mostly by intake of food. As these microcontaminants are highly soluble in lipophilic compounds, edible oils can be an important source of contamination by PAHs.

In 2011, EU Commission Regulation No 835/2011, amending Regulation 1881/2006, set maximum levels in edible oils to 2 ng/g of benzo[a]pyrene individually, and 10 ng/g of benzo[a]pyrene, benzo[b]fluoranthene, chrysene and benzo[a]anthracene combined.

AFFINIMIP® SPE PAHs are selective solid phase extraction cartridges that selectively clean and concentrate Polyaromatic hydrocarbons such as benzo[a]pyrene, benzo[b]fluoranthene, chrysene and benzo[a]anthracene from fatty foods (oil) prior to analysis by HPLC.

We have developed two other solutions for PAH analysis:
