Automated online µSPE Clean-up for QuEChERS Approach to Pesticides Analysis

May 22 2020 Read 181 Times

Spotlight on the availability of automated µSPE (micro Solid Phase Extraction) on the Thermo Scientific™ TriPlus™ RSH Autosampler enabling professionals in modern laboratories to gain reliable, high throughput operations for GC-MS analysis of pesticides in a wide variety of food matrices, even those with high lipid contents.

Key benefits of replacing manual clean-up procedures with a fully automated on-line approach is the efficiency of the QuEChERS (quick, easy, cheap, effective, rugged, and safe) extraction while offering the benefits of eliminating human errors and scaling down sample volume and solvent consumption.

More benefits of automated online µSPE include:

  • Lower % RSDs and higher % recoveries compared with manual d-SPE, leading to more reliable quantitation of targets analytes
  • More efficient removal of matrix co-extractives for higher selectivity and sensitivity
  • Improved robustness as demonstrated by %RSDs lower than 10% during the LC-MS/MS analysis of 200 consecutive injections of tea extracts
  • Unattended operation and time savings compared to manual d-SPE
  • Improved productivity with a decrease in system maintenance and increased instrument uptime
  • Enabling excellent results even with entry-level triple quadrupole MS systems
  • Unified clean-up operations for improved efficiency in routine testing laboratories
