Target/non-target analysis of food contaminants and positive biologically active compounds
- Development, optimization, and validation of analytical methods based on ultra-performance liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry for analysis of contaminants (mainly mycotoxins, pesticides, toxic alkaloids), and positive bioactive compounds (mainly antioxidants) in foods.
- Research targeted on “masked” mycotoxins, with a special focus on the glycosylated forms occurring as a result of special food processing technologies where enzymatic action plays a role (malting / brewing); assessment of various sample preparation techniques, including the immunoaffinity chromatography, for their pre-concentration; assessment of the possibilities of high-resolution mass spectrometry, including the ion mobility mass spectrometry, for their characterization (structure elucidation) and detection.
- Studying of the fate of free and “masked” mycotoxins within the food and feed processing.
Metabolomic fingerprinting / profiling for food authenticity and frauds revealing
- Exploiting of high-resolution mass spectrometry for performing of studies focused on food authenticity and food frauds revealing.
- Research focused on characterization of new natural resources suitable for isolation of biologically active compounds exploitable in food / pharmaceutical research / industry; implementation of methods for biological activity testing (antioxidant, enzyme inhibitory, etc.); utilization of high resolution mass spectrometry for non-target screening of unknown compounds responsible for the biological activity, compounds identification and characterization
