Poster Information
Abstract: The extraction and clean-up of pesticides from food still poses challenges due to the high number and difference in chemical nature of the compounds embedded in food matrices of high complexity and highly varying compositions. Due to their differences in polarity compounds are analysed by GC or LC separation typically using MS/MS or accurate mass instrumentation.
In recent years the QuEChERS (Quick Easy Cheap Effective Rugged Safe) methodology [1] has been introduced in many food safety laboratories for pesticides. While the extraction step has been well standardised (AOAC 2007.1; CEN 15662) the clean-up of the resulting extracts still differs widely for different matrices and laboratories. The potential for high sample throughput using the QuEChERS extraction is impeded by laborious manual sample preparation. Analytical limitations come from the dispersive SPE (dSPE) step used in the QuEChERS methodology with high matrix load and reduced recoveries for low polar pesticides from lipid matrix foods. In consequence several matrix dependent clean-up strategies are found in the literature to overcome matrix effects.
An automated procedure for the clean-up of QuEChERS extracts as well as typical results obtained with it are presented. With the versatile methodology an almost matrix independent, robust and efficient clean-up solution for extracts can be realized [2,3].
