Analytical platform for microcomponents of fruits and vegetables

Identification of Facility
TitleAnalytical platform for microcomponents of fruits and vegetables
Key wordsMicrocomponent, fruit, vegetable
Latest version2013/05/30
DescriptionFruits and vegetables contain various microcomponents that are often of organoleptic or nutritional interest. These microcomponents can be secondary metabolites of the plant but also some vitamins. Their analysis assesses a challenge because of their diversity, of their reactivity and of their poor amount in the products.

This Platform is dedicated to support research on the use and valorization of the microcomponents through both industrial food processing and digestion.

The Platform gathers :

- 5 HPLC chains with diode array detector and/or fluorimetric system.

- UPLC-MS (electrospray with ion trap and possible MSn option)

- GC-MS

The Platform has developed a specific expertise on polyphenol analysis (including condensed tanins), carotenoids and their degradation products.

Possibilities and limitsAll 5 HPLC chains cannot be used at the same time for one same (external) project.

The maximum number of samples that one can analyse per day depends on the type of analysis : it ranges from 6 per day for folates (their derivatization being the bottleneck), up to 10 per day for polyphenols and 20 per day for carotenoids.

Application
Application fields fruits and vegetables
Application examples Apple, tomato, apricot, pear, peach, French bean, spinach, fig, plum, cherry, strawberry, passion fruit
