Learn how LECO's gas chromatography (single dimension GC, and two-dimensional, or GCxGC) mass spectrometer technology can empower your laboratory with a collection of our latest on-demand webinars and application notes, for the food flavor and aroma industries.

Recorded Webinars

Finding the sources of off-flavors and malodors is easier than ever with LECO's time-of-flight mass spectrometers. Industry experts discuss some of the latest advancements in the field of food flavor and aroma:

Understanding Off-flavors and Malodors

Utilizing Gas Chromatography-Olfactometry (GC-O) can help identify active odor compounds in complex mixtures. But, what happens if GC-O does not identify a compound, but an off-flavor or malodor is still present? Ray Marsili (Analytical Flavor Chemist and Owner, Marsili Consulting Group) discuss the process of utilizing ChromaTOF peak deconvolution software to identify hidden compounds.
