Optimisation of the photostimulated luminescence (PSL) tests to detect irradiated dietary supplements
Project Code: A05010
Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre (SUERC)
Sanderson, D ; Fisk, S
The work reported in this project represents an initial study of food supplements with a view to enhancing the performance of routine methods for detecting irradiated ingredients. Based on the published results of existing applications, which have been extremely successful in finding irradiated materials in the supply chain, PSL and TL methods are already effective means for detecting many of these products. The work conducted in this short project shows some of the ways in which the PSL method could be further improved to reduce non-detection probabilities for use in screening work.
