Duration: Approximately 45 minutes

The presentation will describe an alternative approach to the clean-up of matrices with significant fat content using a family of sorbents that effectively retain fatty components. Examples will include analysis of pesticides using QuEChERS methodology and the use of unique solid phase extraction (SPE) cartridges for analysis of PCBs and PAHs in fatty foods.

View this educational event to:

  • Learn faster and more efficient sample preparation methods for the analysis of non-polar contaminants in food samples including oils, butter, milk, hamburgers, salmon, avocado, and olives
  • Broaden your knowledge of recent advances in sample preparation techniques
  • Understand how to use dispersive SPE and traditional SPE cartridges for preparation of fatty matrices for the analysis of persistent organic pollutants.
