Determination of Sulfonamides in Honey by UHPLC-MS/MS Method


In apiculture, sulfonamides are the most commonly used antibiotics to treat American and European Foulbrood, a type of disease that infects bees. This can result in bee honey being contaminated with sulfonamides. A quick and reliable UHPLC-MS/MS method was developed for the determination of 11 sulfonamides in honey. An EU Community Reference Laboratories' (CRLs) Guidance Paper recommended a maximum concentration level of 50 µg/kg for sulfonamides in honey. Check out our Application Note to know more about this method.
