QuEChERS is a sample preparation approach that was designed to be easy, cheap but effective and rugged at the same time. It is most often used for pesticide residue analysis but its beneficial features have assisted it in branching to other fields such as environment, bioanalytical and clinical. QuEChERS was originally designed for fruits and vegetables and proven to work especially well for high water content fruits and vegetables (>80 %) with slightly acid pH. However, there are commodities that don’t fit into this food type.
Development of A Rapid Liquid Chromatography Tandem Mass Spectrometry Method for The Determination of Triclosan in Animal Tissue Matrices
A rapid LC–MS–MS method for the quantification of triclosan in animal tissue samples has been developed. This method uses large volume injection, ESI negative mode and a Poroshell LC column to improve the method limits of detection (LOD) and quantification (LOQ). The method is robust and has no complicated sample preparation steps.
