Application Note: Determination of PFOS and PFOA in Food Matrix of Animal Origin Using UHPLC Hyphenated Triple Quadrupole Tandem Mass Spectrometry
26 April 2013

This application note describes an ultrasensitive method for the simultaneous determination of perfluorooctane sulfonates (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) in food using an Agilent UHPLC 1290 hyphenated Triple Quadrupole 6460 tandem mass spectrometer. The method has the advantages of high sensitivity, high recovery and good selectivity. It can therefore be applied to the routine inspection of PFOS and PFOA in food of animal origin.
