Rapid Classification of Beef Aroma Quality Using SIFT-MS

November 01, 2018

Application of multivariate statistical analysis to a combined data set demonstrated that SIFT-MS discriminates premium quality beef from eight sensory defects, and, therefore, could be applied as an instrumental grading tool, obviating sensory panel grading.

High-Throughput Analysis of Volatile Compounds in Air, Water, and Soil Using SIFT-MS
