Expert services and/or collaboration within common research projects are offered in the following areas:

A. FOOD/FEED CHEMICAL SAFETY, HUMAN EXPOSURE, AND FORENSIC ISSUES

Development of advanced methods for analysis of multiple contaminants and their metabolites in food, feed, biological and environmental matrices; investigation of preventive measures and mitigation strategies:

  • Mycotoxins and natural plant toxins
  • Pesticide / veterinary drugs residues
  • POPs and other industrial contaminants
  • Packaging contaminants / migrants
  • Processing contaminants, antinutritive substances
  • Nanoparticles
  • ´Emerging´ contaminants

B. FOOD QUALITY ATTRIBUTES AND AUTHENTICATION; BIOPROSPECTION

Implementation of novel approaches for characterization and classification of:

  • Metabolome / foodome: fingerprinting and/or profiling methods employing high resolution MS (ambient, LC, GC); advanced data processing; specific markers´ identification
  • Biologically active compounds: non-target screening for ‘unknowns’ in plants / microorganisms; identification based on cutting-edge mass spectrometric techniques; assessment of chemical cocktails in combination with bioactivity testing
  • Flavours / odours: combination of instrumental and sensory analysis; assessment based on the combination of comprehensive GC and olfactometry

 

TRAINING AND STUDY STAYS are offered to PhD students / postdoc young researchers interested in the above areas.

The UCT Prague closely cooperates with EU Reference Laboratories (EURLs) network in the field of QA/QC strategies, interlaboratory validation studies, reference materials and traceability of chemical measurements.

ACCREDITED TESTING AND METROLOGICAL LABORATORY’ of the Department of Food Analysis and Nutrition performs according to the International standard ISO/IEC 17025:2005; accreditation was provided by the Czech Accreditation Institute, signatory of the ILAC-MRA. For an external QC, the laboratory regularly participates in the proficiency testing (FAPAS, EU PT, IRMM, IAEA, etc.).
