Abstract

This application brief demonstrates multi-residue analysis of pesticides in flour using AOAC QuEChERS method by UPLC-MS/MS.

Experimental

Extraction Procedure

  1. Add 15 mL 1% acetic acid in acetonitrile into the 50 mL DisQuE extraction tube 1.
  2. Diluted 5 g flour with 10 mL water and soak for 10 min.
  3. Add sample into the 50 mL tube.
  4. Add any internal standards and standard mixture.
  5. Shake vigorously for 1 minute and centrifuge > 1500 rcf for 5 minute.
  6. Transfer 1 mL of the acetonitrile extract into the clean-up tube 2.
  7. Shake for 30 seconds and centrifuge >1500 rcf for 1 minute.
  8. Transfer 100 μL of final extract into an autosampler vial.
  9. Add any post-extraction internal standards.
  10. Dilute as needed with an appropriate buffer or solvent.
