Extractables and Leachables in Food Contact Material

Separation Science, in collaboration with SCIEX presents an on-demand webinar covering methods for detecting and quantifying compounds that might leach into food from packaging materials.

Duration: Approximately 50 minutes

KC Hyland (Global Technical Marketing, Food & Enviro. Applications, SCIEX)
Dr Hyland is primarily responsible for development of new LC-MS methods using the SCIEX Triple Quadrupole, QTRAP® and QTOF LC-MS/MS technology for the Food and Environmental testing markets, and the communication of these methods to the SCIEX global applications team and SCIEX customers worldwide. She is currently based in the San Francisco Bay Area, California, and enjoys that her global role allows her to interact with scientists, researchers, and laboratories all over the world.

"Extractables and leachables" is a common label for contaminants originating from food or medical packaging. Understanding the risks these contaminants may pose relies on the ability to detect and quantify them. A prerequisite however, is the need to characterize the relevant chemicals.

By viewing this webinar you will:

  • Get background information on food packaging materials and regulations
  • Gain insight to method details and the role method parameters play into analytical success


  • How sensitivity of the new SCIEX Triple Quad™ 7500 LC-MS/MS System - QTRAP® Ready can benefit you when detecting and quantifying compounds that might leach into food
  • Other techniques used for targeted and unexpected analysis using quadrupole time-of-flight technology (QTOF), data independent acquisition, and customizable spectral libraries, allows for a deep dive into screening extractables and leachables

The presentation is ideal for:

  • Laboratory scientists and QA/QC managers working in the food and beverage
  • Those involved in method development, interested in implementing and optimizing food contact material applications
  • Those interested in the analytical methodology aspects of extractables and leachables should attend
