In this application note, we describe a Specific, targeted UPLC-MS/MS method for nitrofurans determination in a range of sample types that meet requirements for both official control and food business operators’ pre-export testing.

The ACQUITY UPLC H-Class System coupled with the Xevo TQ-S micro MS System provides sufficient sensitivity for detection, identification, and quantification of nitrofuran metabolites in a range of products. This method facilitates routine screening and confirmation for official control purposes with a high degree of confidence, but also meets the requirements of pre-export testing, which often demands lower limits of quantification.
