Irish Mass Spectrometry Society (IMSS) 2022


The Irish Mass Spectrometry Society (IMSS) is a voluntary society with the aim of providing a forum for practitioners of Mass Spectrometry in Ireland. The Society is run by a diverse committee with backgrounds in industry, academia, forensics and food testing.

Taking place this Wednesday, 18th May 2022, IMSS 2022 is this year’s annual conference – one full day of Mass Spectrometry talks. And Anatune will be there. Our very own Dr Kathy Ridgway will be in attendance alongside our partners at Apex Scientific.

Kathy Ridgway, Senior Application Chemist

Dr Kathy Ridgway, Senior Applications Chemist, Anatune

“I gained my first degree from the University of Surrey and during more than ten years working for Unilever Research, I completed my PhD at the University of Loughborough entitled “Determination of trace contaminants in food”. My work focused upon alternative extraction techniques, in particular stir bar sorptive extraction to examine taints and off-flavours in foods.

Before joining Anatune, I worked as a technical specialist for RSSL in Reading.

I have published papers, contributed chapters to several books and written a review on the topic of off-flavours and taints in food. I have also been a long-term customer of Anatune and have used GERSTEL instrumentation extensively.

I am a Chartered Chemist, an active member of the Royal Society of Chemistry, in particular as a member of the food group committee.  I am also a season ticket holder and enthusiastic supporter of Everton FC.

I joined Anatune as a GC-MS applications chemist in June 2014.  I love the variety of applications that we see in the lab.  Working with our customers to provide an automated solution that works for them is very satisfying.”
