Research Publications (Food Safety)

The Food Safety Publications tracks research that is published across national and international peer-reviewed journals. Recent articles are available ahead of print and searchable by Journal, Article Title, and Category. The research publications are tracked across six categories: Bacterial Pathogens, Chemical Contaminants, Natural Toxins, Parasites, Produce Safety, and Viruses. Articles produced by USDA Grant Funding Agencies and FDA Grant Funding Agencies are also tracked.

  1. Rapid screening of 15 highly toxic pesticide residues in Angelica sinensis decoctions by thermal desorption electrospray ionization mass spectrometry

    • A decoction is the most common form of Chinese herbal medicine dosing. An Angelica sinensis decoction was qualitatively and semi-quantitatively analyzed for 15 highly toxic pesticide residues by thermal desorption electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (TD-ESI/MS) with a triple quadrupole mass spectrometer in multiple reaction monitoring mode without pretreatment.

  3. Simple and sensitive detection of triazophos pesticide by using quantum dots nanobeads based on immunoassay

    • A rapid, ultra-sensitive and simple fluorescence immunoassay (FLISA) on CdSe/ZnS Quantum dots (QDs) for recognition pesticide triazophos have been established. In this assay, the immunoassay uses (CdSe/ZnS) Quantum dots (QDs) as a probe that carries monoclonal antibody (mAb). The free triazophos and OVA-haptens were competed for binding the mAb on the surface of the QDs. Therefore, the concentration of TRIAZ can get by calculation of the detection of fluorescence value.

    • Food and Agricultural Immunology
    • In this study, we used 2-(diethexyphosphoryl)acetic acid as a common template molecule and Fe3O4@SiO2 as support material to prepare a superparamagnetic core/shell molecular imprinting polymer (MIP), Fe3O4@SiO2@MIP, which has multiple recognition sites and increased adsorption capacity.
