However the uncontrolled use may cause heavy human disease so regulatory agencies around the world have established maximum residue levels (MRLs ...

Determination of 24 Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons in Smoked Meat by ASE Extraction-GPC Purification Coupled with GC/MS

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), a class of complex compounds containing two or more benzene rings, are widely found in the environment and food. PAHs are formed during the incomplete combustion of organic matter, such as wood utilized in cooking and food preparation. They have attracted wid ...

Determination of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons in Seafood by UHPLC- MS/MS

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) can contaminate foods during smoking, heating, and drying processes that allow combustion products to come into direct contact with food. They can also enter food supply chains through contaminated air and water, and accumulate in various food chains. Regulati ...

Determination of the Nitrofuran Metabolites in Seafood using Ultra High-Performance Liquid Chromatography - Tandem Mass Spectrometry

Nitrofurans are a class of broad-spectrum antibiotics that are widely used to kill or slow down the growth of bacteria in the aquaculture industry. The use of nitrofurans and their metabolites has been restricted by a number of countries and organizations within the European Union, United States and ...

Determination of Thirteen Beta Agonists in Pork Using UHPLC - Tandem Mass Spectrometry

Beta-adrenergic receptor agonists (ß- agonists) are synthetic drugs utilized in the treatment of conditions such as asthma in humans, and are also used as a growth-promoting agent in food-producing animals. The use of ß- agonists in food-producing livestock has been either banned or regulated across ...

The Preparation and Analysis of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons in Meat by GC/MS

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are hydrocarbon molecules containing two or more aromatic rings. Some PAHs, such as benzo[a]pyrene, are classified as carcinogens. There are concerns about PAHs in food, especially in grilled meats. This application note presents a method developed to measure ...
