MsCompare: An Untargeted LC & GC/MS Metabolomics Platform for Quality Control, Precise Deconvolution and Data Analysis
MsMetrix, the Netherlands

A GC/MS or LC/MS workflow for Metabolomics applications includes a number of distinct steps: experimental design, sampling, sample preparation, data acquisition, data processing, deconvolution, identification and data interpretation.

The MsXelerator software includes Quality Control procedures and Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) to properly control each step in this workflow and to obtain reliable results for both quantitation and identification.

The combination of QuEChERS sample preparation and LC-MS/MS analysis provided acceptable quantitative and qualitative results in baby food.
Residue Analysis of Etoxazole in Red Pepper using Gas Chromatography: Application to Dissipation Pattern
Biotechnology Research Institute, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Chonnam National University, Gwangju, Republic of Korea

The dSPE of QuEChERS was replaced with an SPE cartridge, which provided a very clean chromatogram, although a small recovery percentage was obtained. The method fulfilled all validation criteria and was useful for monitoring etoxazole residues in red pepper. It can also be used and optimized for other fruit and vegetable matrices.
Simultaneous multi-determination and transfer of eight pesticide residues from green tea leaves to infusion using gas chromatography
Biotechnology Research Institute, College of Agriculture and Life Science, Chonnam National University, Gwangju, Republic of Korea

Acetonitrile was used as the extraction solvent with sodium chloride to enhance the partitioning of analytes into the organic phase. Recovery indicated good method accuracy and repeatability, and was within the acceptable range for residue determinations. The mere presence of pesticide residues in tea does not necessarily mean that the tea has become toxic and would pose a health hazard. We revealed that only a negligible or small percentage of pesticides in tea is transferred to the infusion.
Matrix enhancement effect: A blessing or curse for gas chromatography?
Biotechnology Research Institute, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Chonnam National University, 300 Yongbong-dong, Buk-gu, Gwangju 500-757, Republic of Korea

A sharp, narrow, and sensitive peak is a pre-condition for a sensitive GC analysis. Therefore, a protectant is needed to protect the analyte from any type of distortion for integration and to prevent overestimation. Existing solutions do not overcome these problems completely due to limitations. As the matrix enhancement problem originated from matrix components, its solution should come from similar components.
Application Notes
