    Rapid Determination of Pesticides in Spinach

    Highly pigmented foods, such as spinach, require cleanup prior to analysis for pesticide residues. A dual-layer SPE tube containing graphitized carbon and aminopropyl on silica (NH2) is often used because; Carbon removes pigments and sterols and NH2 removes fatty acids, polar pigments, organic acids, and sugars. Removing these matrix materials reduces interferences that can lead to ion suppression in LC-MS, inlet contamination in GC-MS, and column contamination for both techniques. Our Supel Sphere Carbon/NH2 SPE tube uses spherical materials for both the carbon and NH2 layers, providing fast, more consistent flows compared to tubes containing granular material. This allows gravity elution (instead of vacuum elution) to be applied to Supel Sphere tubes, resulting in more contact time between extracts and sorbents.

    Improved Recovery of the Fungicide Carbendazim

    Fungicide carbendazim can some times be used to combat mold on citrus fruits including oranges. Recently, low residue levels of the fungicide were reported to be present in the bulk orange juice import shipments to the USA. Because this compound can persist through processing steps and may be found in the final consumer product, many government agencies have established maximum residue limits (MRLs) to ensure the safety of their population. Presented here is a single method, involving fast and effective QuEChERS cleanup, suitable for various orange juice matrices. The choice of PSA/C18 sorbents reduced interferences, resulting in greater recoveries and less ion-suppression. Because the QuEChERS method is fast, it only adds a few minutes to the sample preparation procedure. Sample processing using QuEChERS with PSA/C18 allows analysts to accurately process various matrices in a single workflow, with very little additional sample preparation time.

    Odor control for composting

    Control Composting Odors, Naturally: Municipal sludge is often composted in indoor facilities or composting sheds. These areas create significant odor control challenges. Ecosorb products, either evaporated or atomized in concentrate form with nozzles or humidifying fans, control industrial odors even in very large composting facilities.

    Improved Resolution of Mycotoxins from Cereal

    Mycotoxins are a diverse group comprised of hundreds of secondary metabolic products of various fungal species. Several show marked toxicity in humans. Contamination of the food supply with mycotoxins is increasingly prevalent, and can occur during growth, harvest, transportation, processing or storage. Techniques to reduce mycotoxin concentration after contamination are expensive, unreliable and sometimes reversible. Therefore, the removal of contaminated products from the food chain is a primary means of eliminating human exposure. The sensitive and accurate detection of very low levels of these compounds is critical to efforts to identify contaminated products. LC-MS/MS is a popular analytical technique for this purpose. This application explores using Ascentis® Express RP-Amide and Ascentis Express F5 HPLC columns to perform this analysis.

    Improved Reproducibility and Reduced Sample Preparation Time for the HPLC Analysis of Aflatoxins in Raw Peanut Paste

    The US FDA and international regulatory agencies have set contamination levels for aflatoxins in animal feedstuffs. Since Aspergillus may infect commodities pre-harvest, during storage or during processing, monitoring for aflatoxins in associated agricultural commodities at all stages of production is requisite. Field screening methods exist that are adequate to estimate contamination levels for aflatoxins. When additional confirmation or quantification is desired, chromatographic laboratory analysis is often necessary. Preparation of matrix samples prior to chromatographic analysis typically requires extraction and purification. Commonly, immunoaffinity columns (IAC), which employ a multi-step bind and elute mechanism to concentrate and purify aflatoxins, are used to purify matrix samples for subsequent analysis. Solid phase extraction (SPE), an alternate method which may use interference removal, can also be employed.

    Determination of amino acids

    The method enables fast quantitative determination in feeds, mixed fodders, and raw materials of the following amino acids: arginine, lysine, tyro sine, phenylalanine, histidine, leucine and iso -leucine (total), methionine, valine, proline, alanine, glycine, cystine, tryptophan, aspartic and glutamic acids.

    Since during the sample decomposition asparagine and glutamine are hydrolyzed to aspartic and glutamic acids, respectively, the content of these two acids represents the total content of both the acids and the amides.
