Mass Spectrometric Monitoring of Animal Feed for BSE Spread
King, Angela G.
Journal of Chemical Education, v81 n9 p1242 Sep 2004
The researchers in London have developed an emerging technology that utilizes mass spectrometry to detect processed animal protein (PAP) in animal feed. The amount of animal protein in the feed can be determined by the ratio of the hydrolyzed gelatine signal at m/z 1044 to an internal standard signal at m/z 556.
