Analysis of Residual Chloramphenicol in Shrimp by LC/MS/MS with QuEChERS Sample Pre-treatment
Chloramphenicol (CAP) is a broad spectrum antibiotic that is widely used in the growth of animals and marine culture. However, CAP can cause aplastic anaemia and is a possible carcinogen in humans. Its use in livestock farming including fish and shrimps has been banned in the European Union and many other countries. Here, we present an LC/MS/MS method for accurate and reliable quantitation of CAP in shrimp samples on a LCMS-8050 with a heated ESI interface.
