Ingrained Success

When the TruMac® Macro Determinator at the Southern African Grain Laboratory (SAGL) needed to be replaced, laboratory manager Jolanda Nortjé returned to LECO for an updated solution. For the past twenty years, LECO had been providing the SAGL with excellent service support, and their TruMac and previous nitrogen analyzers had been LECO products they were very satisfied with. At the end of 2019, trusting LECO again, the SAGL purchased a LECO FP928 to replace their TruMac.

Beyond the MOSH/MOAH Hump

In Europe, food contamination by Mineral Oil Saturated Hydrocarbons (MOSH) and Mineral Oil Aromatic Hydrocarbons (MOAH) is a growing concern and one that is starting to gain attention in North America. There is not enough data yet to know for sure if all MOSH and MOAH contamination is harmful, but some MOSH has been proven carcinogenic, and some MOAH have caused complications in lab mice and selective build-up in the human body. In order to better understand the effects of these hydrocarbons, it is first important to determine the presence and types of MOSH and MOAH in food samples.
