Recent advancements in sample preparation techniques for analysis of pesticides and environmental contaminants in foods

March 22, 2016 at 11:00 am EST

Sample preparation of complex food samples for analysis of organic contaminant residues remains a challenge in achieving high sample throughput, while reducing time, labor and cost required for the analysis. This webinar will present a simple, high-throughput, cost effective sample preparation approach for the analysis of pesticides and environmental contaminants in seafood and meats. The sample preparation approach is based on quick, easy, cheap, effective, rugged and safe (QuEChERS) extraction followed by dispersive solid phase extraction (d-SPE) clean-up combined with in-vial filtration. The method allows simultaneous determination of over 200 contaminants from a single sample, with satisfactory recoveries and low detection limits.

Learning Objectives of Webinar

1. Learn about new developments in sample preparation of complex fatty food matrices for residue analysis.
2. The importance of proper sample processing, extraction and clean-up techniques.
3. How to increase sample throughput and reduce analysis cost to enhance laboratory productivity.

The ability to successfully defend a laboratory’s data audits or litigation is paramount to the overall mission of any environmental lab. Central to that, is maintaining chain-of-custody throughout the analytical workflow, not just during sample collection. One of the last frontiers to maintaining sample custody exists within the analytical workflow, specifically the labeling of analytical samples. For a large percentage of analyses, the samples are extracted for use in chromatographic instruments, and the sample is stored in a glass, 2 mL vial. Technology now exists to eliminate the manual nature of vial labeling by printing directly onto a vial with information taken directly out of a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS).

Learning Objectives of Webinar:

Review current ways of labeling vials and discover opportunities for improvement.
Identify vial labeling techniques that match the demands of your laboratory.
Discover workflow enhancements from LIMS through sample prep that create a more efficient process. http://ow.ly/UKLhN
