Professional profile

Cristiana Benetti is senior chemist at IZSVe – SCS2 Chemistry. She graduated in Chemistry and pharmaceutical techniques (1997) and than specialized in Chemistry and food technology (2000) and in Chemical methods of control and analysis (2003).

She is experienced in analytical method development and validation using LLE, SPE QuEChERS sample preparation techniques and ELISA, HPLC-DAD/FL, HPLC-MSMS to determine residues. She has a good knowledge of the institutional and legal framework of the national residue plans.

She is skilled in the international accreditation process in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025 requirements and in statistical methods applied to validation and quality control of analytical data.

Since 1998, research has been focused on analytical chemistry activities applied to veterinary drug residues (quinolones, tetracyclines, sulfonamides, forbidden drugs, anthelmintics, coccidiostats etc.) and some contaminants (PAH, Carbamates and ITX) in food. Since 2007, her experience has extended to specific fields as identification of irradiated food by chemical methods (GC-MS).

She is project coordinator in national funded research project RC 14/11 entitled, “Depletion study of carbadox,  olaquindox and their metabolites in rabbit tissues after oral administration”; unit coordinator in nationally funded research project RC/13 entitled, “Analysis of veterinary drug residues by the multiclass-multiresidue approach: a new tool for future food safety control? Development and standardization of analytical methods to discover benefits and drawbacks”.
