I am leading a project, Vitaminomics, on modernization of methods for vitamin analyses of food and feed, taking advantage of my expertise in HPLC and mass spectrometry for identification and quantification of compounds in biological- and biomedical sciences.
Recent work include method establishment at IMR of an LC-MS/MS method for simultaneous determination of vit B1, B2, B3, B6 (AOAC), an immunoaffinity LC-UV method for vit B12 analysis (AOAC/ISO), and an LC-MS/MS method to determine folate based on 6 different vitamin forms (modified from AOAC/NMKL).
I am an expert member in working groups for vitamins and other nutrients in the standardization organizations CEN and ISO, and participate in development of standardized methods in food chemistry through AOAC and NMKL.
