Application Note: QuEChERS Sample Preparation for the Determination of Polycyclic Hydrocarbons (PAH) in Shrimp Using LC with Fluorescence Detection
1 May 2013

Major oil spills in the world’s oceans have brought attention to the problem of PAH contamination, and to the challenges related to PAH analysis in food and environmental samples. This application describes a QuEChERS-based sample preparation protocol for the determination of PAH in shrimp. QuEChERS methodology is quicker, easier, cheaper, safer than, and as rugged as prior methods of sample preparation.
