LC/MS Equipment Research Enhancement for Department of Veterinary Sciences

Investigators
Galey, Frances
Institutions
University of Wyoming
Start date
2000
End date
2001
Objective
The LC/ MS from this proposal is a scientific instrument that will allow for detection and chemical structural identification of compounds in meat and milk. Compounds that can be detected using this instrument include antibiotics as well as other small molecules such as some natural products.
More information
Researchers in the Department of Veterinary Sciences and collaborators are currently involved in investigations about the fate of antibiotics in milk, drug disposition in minor food animal species, and the neutraceutical/ natural product chemistry. The LC/ MS from this proposal is a scientific instrument that will allow for detection and chemical structural identification of compounds in meat and milk. Compounds that can be detected using this instrument include antibiotics as well as other small molecules such as some natural products. Specifically, this instrument will allow for development of methods that can confirm the presence of these compounds when they are suspected of contaminating milk and meat. Once new methods are developed, the instrument will allow for development of grants to study the fate over time of a drug or natural toxin in an animal as well as studies that survey the extent of contamination of various food animal products.
