The role of GC-MS/MS with triple quadrupole in pesticide residue analysis in food and the environment
GC-MS/MS using a QqQ analyzer has become a powerful technique for the determination of pesticide residues due to its robustness, and excellent sensitivity and selectivity.
Analysis of triphenylmethane dyes in seafood products: a review of extraction methods and determination by liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry
This review reports different sample treatments and analytical procedures based on LC-MS for the determination of dyes in seafood.
Carotenoids extraction and quantification: a review
Methods of carotenoids extraction including the use of new environmentally friendly methodologies are described.
Real-time PCR based detection of a panel of food-borne pathogens on a centrifugal microfluidic “LabDisk” with on-disk quality controls and standards for quantification
A centrifugal microfluidic cartridge “LabDisk” for integrated and parallel real-time PCR based detection of six different food-borne pathogens.
A GC/MS method for the simultaneous determination and quantification of chlorpromazine and diazepam in pork samples
A gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry (GC/MS) method for the simultaneous determination of chlorpromazine and diazepam in pork samples, which are two of the most often used antipsychotics, has been developed and validated.
Determination of bisphenol-A,
2,4-dichlorophenol, bisphenol-AF and tetrabromobisphenol-A in liquid foods and their packaging materials by vortex-assisted supramolecular solvent microextraction/ high-performance liquid chromatography
A new microextraction technique, vortex-assisted supramolecular solvent microextraction, was developed and applied to the analysis of endocrine disruptors in liquid foods and their packaging materials.
Preparation of Fe3O4@TiO2/graphene oxide magnetic microspheres for microchip-based preconcentration of
estrogens in milk and milk powder samples
We reported new magnetic microspheres as the adsorbent of estrogens.
Highly sensitive determination of
Orange II based on the dual amplified electrochemical signal of graphene and mesoporous TiO2
Orange II, an azo dye, is not permitted in food preparations as it can cause many adverse health effects when consumed.
A rapid method for the determination of free alpha-amino acids in pea (Pisum sativum) using ultra high performance liquid chromatography-high resolution accurate mass-mass spectrometry
The analysis of alpha-amino acids in biological matrices usually requires time-consuming ion exchange liquid chromatography with post column derivatisation.
Proficiency test results for PAH analysis are not method-dependent
A distribution of z-scores in a PAH proficiency test shows symmetry, results are not dependent on GC or LC method.
