(NACRW 2017) North American Chemical Residue Workshop

  • Overview
Date(s): July 23, 2017 - July 26, 2017
Location: Naples, Florida
Language: English

Join Waters at the 54th Annual North American Chemical Residue Workshop (NACRW)

Waters is proud to be a Platinum sponsor of NACRW 2017

Dates: Sunday, July 23 – Wednesday, July 26, 2016
Location: Naples Grande Beach Resort, 475 Seagate Drive, Naples, Florida 34103

NACRW is the annual meeting for scientists particularly interested in trace level analysis of pesticides, veterinary drug residues, and other chemicals in food, animal feed, and environmental samples.  The purpose of the meeting is to provide training, develop and improve technical knowledge, facilitate development and distribution of new analysis methods and techniques, and establish networking to promote professional cooperation between scientists of these interests.

Waters’ novel technologies are helping to ensure the quality of the food we eat and the environment we live in. Novel technologies such as Vion, providing ion mobility combined with high resolution MS, universal source design including Atmospheric Pressure Gas Chromatography (APGC), ionKey for sensitivity, throughput, and robustness for microflow LC-MS analyses and the informatics platforms that enable the collection and interpretation of multi-faceted datasets from such advanced analytical instrumentation. Stop by the Waters exhibit booth and learn about our latest technologies and innovations, enabling superior performance in your lab, allowing you to succeed in the science of what’s possible.

Overcoming the Challenges of Analysing Polar Pesticides in Food
Dimple Shah, Senior Scientist, Waters Corporation

A panel of representative polar pesticides has been targeted in a single LC-MS/MS method. Extracts of various foodstuffs were prepared in accordance with the Quick Polar Pesticides (QuPPe) extraction method. Chromatographic separation was achieved on mixed mode / hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC), applying a mobile phase gradient. Chromatographic performance was evaluated in accordance with SANTE guideline document 11954/2015, certain limitations were determined for the challenging analysis of these highly polar pesticides. Overall method performance was evaluated by assessing linearity, accuracy and sensitivity.

FAST CAN BE CLEAN! Food Sample Cleanup Using Oasis PRiME HLB
Jeremy Shia, Product Marketing Manager, Waters Corporation

It is very challenging to develop specific sample preparation protocols for multiresidue contaminant analysis due to the complexity of food matrices. Better but potentially time-consuming cleanup procedures using traditional solid phase extraction were substituted  by simple techniques with generic cleanup such as liquid-liquid extraction or protein precipitation.  Consequently, insufficient generic cleanup contributes to the increased instrument maintenance and system downtime.  Oasis PRiME HLB can efficiently remove common interferences such as fats, phospholipids and pigments from food matrices.  No method development is required by following the recommended pass-through protocol.   The cleanup step is fast and easily integrated following the initial extraction step but gives cleaner extracts compared with generic cleanup protocols.  In this seminar, we will demonstrate  the use of this pass-through protocol for the challenging food samples.  Better cleanup will result in better accuracy and robustness of the analytical method, and increased system uptime.
