Automated Solid-Phase Extraction of Oraganochlorine Pesticides from Drinking Water
Frans Schoustsen and Pranathi R Perati

A new method was developed to automate the capture and elution of Organochlorine pesticides from drinking water. The concentrated analytes were then analyzed by GC with Electron Capture Detection (ECD).

GC-MS/MS Analysis of Pesticide Residue in Green Tea Extracted by QuEChERS with Acetonitrile as Final Solvent
Cojocariu C., Morgan P., Silcock P., Godula M

QuEChERS involves an initial step when a few grams of the sample are extracted with acetonitrile followed by a clean-up step (with dispersive-SPE) used to remove, to a certain extent, unwanted matrix compound (such as pigments, sugars, organic acids). With QuEChERS, the final extract ends up with the pesticides in acetonitrile, which, being polar solvent, can be
problematic in GC-MS.

Increasing Extraction Efficiency of Pesticides and Dioxins from Wet Samples Using a Novel Polymer During Accelerated Solvent Extraction
Katerina Bousova, Pranathi Perati, Rahmat Ullah, Kannan Srinivasan

Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ ASE™ Prep MAP is a proprietary polymer designed to remove moisture and increase extraction efficiencies from wet samples including soils, tissues and food products. This unique formulation allows moisture removal under a variety of ionic strength conditions and accelerated solvent extraction conditions.

Intact Protein LC-MS: How to Overcome the Challenges?
Robert van Ling, Evert-Jan Sneekes, Sebastiaan Dolman, Laurent Rieux, Mauro DePra, Christian Ravnsborg, Dafydd Milton, Remco Swart

Purpose: Facilitate intact protein LC-MS without compromising performance.
Methods: Construct prototypes of integrated column and sprayer dedicated for intact protein separations and compare performance.
Results: Three prototypes have been directly compared and all showed good protein separations, each with their unique area of strength.

GC-MS/MS Analysis of Pesticide Residues in Green Tea Extracted by QuEChERS with Acetonitrile as Final Solvent
Cojocariu C., Morgan P., Silcock P., Pelagatti S., Magni P. and Pigozzo F.

This poster describes the analysis of several challenging pesticides from green tea samples using GC-MS/MS and acetonitrile as final extraction solvent. The compounds analysed are representatives of various classes of pesticides, such as carboxamids, OC, OP, pyrethriods, aromatic, phenylamides.

Exploring The Benefits Of Automated Unattended Sample Derivatization Prior To Gas Chromatography Analysis
A. Caruso, M. Santoro, P. Magni, S. Pelagatti, R. Facchetti

Purpose: Exploring the possibility to perform the sample preparation steps necessary for the derivatization of analytes in a fully automated and reliable way by means of the same robotic sampler used for sample injection into the gas chromatograph.
Methods: As an example of application we screened dairy products for melamine and its derivates presence via GC-MS/MS.
Results: The outcome are good and precise results that show how it is possible to reliably automate sample preparation opera

Determination of Veterinary Drug Residues in Milk by GC/MS and GC/ECD
Yu Chongtian, Lv Jianxia

Purpose: Develop a rapid, sensitive method for determining amitraz and its metabolites in milk.
Methods: Samples were hydrolyzed in acidic condition and extracted with hexane. After derivativation, the samples were analyzed by GC-ECD or directly by GC-MS.
Results: The results show that GC-MS determination of amitraz and its metabolites is rapid and sensitive.
