Duration: Approximately 1 hour

The two presentations include:

Sample Preparation Tools for Chromatographic Testing of Beer

Here Klaus Buckendahl covers efficient sample preparation and determination for pesticides, as well as solid phase microextraction (SPME)-GC for automated raw material profiling, process control, and QC in beer. 

View this presentation to:

  • Hear insights on pesticide analysis in hops by QuEChERS with improved recovery for planar pesticides
  • Learn how SPME can be utilized as an efficient tool for the profiling of flavor compound such as terpenes, aldehydes and other compounds in beer.

Drink and Drive – Flavor Chemistry and Sensory Properties of Non-alcoholic Beer

In this presentation Nils Rettberg gives a brief overview on NAB production techniques and highlights how these affect the volatile and non-volatile NAB chemistry. Analytical assays to characterize contributors to NAB flavor are described.
