Volatile and non-volatile compounds
Non-volatile compounds: Analysis by HPLC in all solid and liquid matrices. We also offer the analysis of the 2 compounds syringaldehyde/Vanillin at trace concentrations of the order of µg/L in spirits by LLDME-GCMS.
Volatile compounds: This analysis carried out in GCMS, at concentrations of the order of ppb (µg/L) makes it a more demanding analysis in terms of sensitivity.
Thanks to the R&D work carried out, we have validated the analysis for solid matrices from the same extraction carried out for non-volatile compounds, offering both a complete profile of the sample and allowing a more accessible price offer.
Possibility of grouping services in the form of packages
Many of these phenolic compounds are also known as smoky flavors generated by burning organic materials like wood or peat.
> Composés "tourbés" : matrice liquide ou solide, prestations notamment pour les spiritueux (whisky) et les grains (après extraction) réalisé en HPLC.
> Composés "fumés" dans le vin : méthode par SBSE-TD-GCMS.
