Application Note: A Simple and Rapid Extraction Method for Chlorinated Pesticides in Poultry Fat
17 July 2017

Pesticide contamination is not limited to produce items. Animals used for food consumption are also exposed to contaminants at levels that can pose harm to the human population. Presented in this application note is a method developed using SPE and GC/electron capture detector (ECD), for pesticides analysis from poultry fat. It shows how this method improves upon the traditional procedure, resulting in a 75% reduction in laboratory space, reduction of hazardous waste, and a 50% reduction in labor consumption, leading to greater laboratory productivity.
