A rapid GC-TOFMS method was developed to separate and detect a target set of 24 regulated contact allergens in approximately 5 minutes. In addition to the target allergens, the data also provides excellent characterization information for non-targeted aroma analytes within complex perfume samples. Ref. 203-821-519

Various regulations, including the European Cosmetics Directive, requires allergen compounds to be listed on packaging materials when present above certain levels (10 ppm for a leave-on product, like perfume). It is demonstrated here that using LECO’s Pegasus BT GC-TOFMS is an excellent choice to provide targeted quantitative screening for contact allergens and non-targeted characterization from the same injection.
