Food_App1Analysis of Aflatoxins by UHPLC with MS/MS Detection
This application note demonstrates the effective chromatographic separation of aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, G2 and M1 by UHPLC-MS/MS, achieving the 0.05-ppb control limit for M1 set by the European Union (EU) without the need for derivatization.


Food_App2Analysis of Mycotoxins in Multi-Grain and Corn Cereals without Derivatization by LC-MS/MS Using Time-Managed MRMs
The presented work details an effective, reliable and robust LC-MS/MS method, using time-managed MRM (Multiple Reaction Monitoring) transitions, for the monitoring of mycotoxins in multi-grain and corn cereals at low μg/kg levels, without the need for derivatization.

Food_App3Determination of Thirteen Beta Agonists in Pork Using Ultra High-Performance Liquid Chromatography - Tandem Mass Spectrometry
In this application note, an LC/MS/MS method, utilizing a PerkinElmer LX50 UHPLC system coupled to a PerkinElmer QSight® 220 MS/MS detector, is presented for the determination and quantification of thirteen β- agonist compounds in pork samples.



Determination of Sulfonamides in Milk by Ultra-Performance Liquid Chromatography coupled with Tandem Mass Spectrometry (QSight™)
Sulfonamides are commonly known as “sulfa drug” that are derivatives of sulfanilamide (p-amino benzene sulfonamide), commonly used as an antibacterial veterinary drug for treatment. In this work, a fast and sensitive LC-MS/MS method for the quantitative analysis of sulfonamide antibiotics in milk is presented.



Determination of the Nitrofuran Metabolites in Seafood using Ultra High-Performance Liquid Chromatography - Tandem Mass Spectrometry
Nitrofurans have been defined as Class A prohibited drugs in many countries, and a Minimum Required Performance Limit (MRPL) of 1.0 μg/kg has been set for food, animal and aquaculture products. The main purpose of this work is to determine the detection limits for nitrofurans using a QSight® 210 LC/MS/MS system.


Determination of Sulfonamides in Honey by UHPLC-MS/MS Method
In apiculture, sulfonamides are the most commonly used antibiotics to treat American and European Foulbrood, a type of disease that infects bees. This can result in bee honey being contaminated with sulfonamides. Regarding all the above, developing a fast, reliable and robust method for the quantitation of sulfonamides in honey is very important.


“No Dilute” Just Shoot: Robustness of a QSight LC-ESI-MS/MS for Low Level Pesticide Residue Analysis in Wine
In this study, we used the QSight LC/MS/MS system to evaluate the potential of eliminating sample preparation for trace level pesticide analysis in a complex sample such as wine.



Multi-residue Analysis of Pesticides in Animal Feed Using the QSight LC/MS/MS
In this study, a fast, sensitive, and selective multi-residue method has been developed for the analysis of 94 pesticides in animal feeding stuffs.




Simultaneous Determination of Pesticides Residues and Illegal Additives in Wine
In this study, a simple and sensitive LC-MS/MS method has been developed and applied for the determination of both pesticides and pigments in a single analytical run.




Arsenic Speciation Analysis in Rice Following Method GB 5009.11-2014 to Ensure Safety
In this study, five arsenic species were characterized in a commercial rice sample and certified reference material using a gradient anion-exchange method in accordance with GB 5009.11.



Fast Digestion Analysis of Lead and Cadmium in Rice Using GFAAS with Longitudinal Zeeman Background Correction
In this work, a rapid, accurate method for trace-level analysis of Pb and Cd in rice grains is established and verified using fast digestion with GFAAS.
