New multicomponent CRM mix simplifies furan and alkylfuran analysis

Mar 28 2024

Restek’s new multicomponent CRM mix has been developed specifically for food safety laboratories analysing furans and alkylfurans and  meets all compounds listed by AOAC SMPR 2019.004 and Commission Recommendation (EU) 2022/495. Having combined eight furan and alkylfuran compounds into a single ampul, Restek have simplified calibration significantly, thereby helping food laboratories to keep errors to a minimum, while saving time, and money. These compounds are furan, 2-methylfuran, 3-methylfuran, 2,5-dimethylfuran, 2-ethylfuran, 2-butylfuran, 2-Pentylfuran and 2,3-Dimethylfuran.

With a high concentration of 100 µg/mL Restek has given labs extra flexibility in creating working standards. In addition Restek’s optimised SPME Arrows and GC-MS method enables laboratories to streamline method development.

The Furan/Alkylfurans Standard (Restek catalogue reference 33334) is a certified reference material (CRM) that is exclusively manufactured and QC-tested in Restek’s ISO-accredited laboratories.
