Analysis of Pesticide Residue in Spinach using the AutoMate-Q40 an Automated QuEChERS Solution

Teledyne Tekmar

QuEChERS is a Quick-Easy-Cheap-Effective-Rugged-Safe extraction method that has been developed for the determination of pesticide residues in agricultural commodities. The rise in popularity of the QuEChERS technique and the increase in sample testing have driven the need for automation for this extraction technique.

Determination of Pesticide Residue in Apple Juice Using the AutoMate-Q40

Teledyne Tekmar

QuEChERS is a Quick-Easy-Cheap-Effective-Rugged-Safe extraction method that has been developed for the determination of pesticide residues in agricultural commodities. While the original unbuffered method was developed for plant matrices, since 2003, two additional buffered methods were created and adapted to many additional matrices such as fruit juices. The rise in popularity of the QuEChERS technique and the increase in sample testing have driven the need for automation for this extraction technique. The AutoMate-Q40 streamlines the two part QuEChERS method from the liquid extraction to the cleanup step. The aim of this project is to evaluate the performance and versatility of the Automate-Q40. A LC-MS/MS was used to determine pesticide residues in fruit juices, particularly in apple juice. Pesticide residues were extracted from the apple juice by using the AutoMate-Q40. Quantification was based on matrix-matched calibration curves with the use of internal standard to ensure method accuracy. QC samples were evaluated at levels of 10, 50, 100 ng/g to ensure precision and accuracy of the AutoMate-Q40.

Determination of Pesticide Residues in Honey, by an Automated QuEChERS Solution

Tyler Trent and Matthew Trass

Abstract

The QuEChERS (Quick-Easy-Cheap-Effective-Rugged-Safe) sample extraction method was developed for the determination of pesticide residues in agricultural commodities. While originally QuEChERS had been developed for plant matrices, the technique has since been adapted for many additional matrices such as honey, as well as several other applications.

With the rise in popularity of this extraction technique and due to the reliability of its multiresidue methods, it has driven the need for automation of the QuEChERS extraction to increase productivity and throughput. The AutoMate-Q40 streamlines the QuEChERS method by adding Acetonitrile (ACN) and buffering salts, shaking, mixing, centrifugating the sample, transferring to a dispersive solid phase extraction (d-SPE) tube, measuring and delivering the extract.

The aim of this project is to validate the extraction performance of the AutoMate-Q40 by monitoring neonicotinoids and other pesticides in honey. The target residues were determined by liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS).
