ABSTRACT This paper presents an analytical method for the determination of quinolones in chicken tissues. The procedure involves pre-treatment by solid-phase extraction (SPE) and subsequent liquid chromatography (LC) with UV absorbance detection. Different SPE disposable cartridges and extractants of the tissue samples were tested, and various columns were systematically tested. The mobile phase was composed of acetonitrile and citric buffer at pH 4.5, with an initial composition of acetonitrile-water (12:88, v/v) and using linear gradient elution. Recoveries were 66-91% in the concentration range 30-300 microg kg(-1). The detector response was linear in this range. The limits of detection were 16-30 microg kg(-1). These values were lower than the maximum residue limits established by the European Union.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents the multiresidue determination of the series of quinolones regulated by the European Union (marbofloxacin, ciprofloxacin, danofloxacin, enrofloxacin, sarafloxacin, difloxacin, oxolinic acid and flumequine) in bovine and porcine plasma using capillary electrophoresis and liquid chromatography with ultraviolet detection (CE-UV, LC-UV), liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry and -tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS, LC-MS/MS) methods. These procedures involve a sample preparation by solid-phase extraction for clean-up and preconcentration of the analytes before their injection into the separation system. All methods give satisfactory results in terms of linearity, precision, accuracy and limits of quantification. The suitability of the methods to determine quinolones was evaluated by determining the concentration of enrofloxacin and ciprofloxacin in real samples from pig plasma and cow plasma.

    ABSTRACT: A simple, rapid and sensitive method has been proposed for simultaneous electrogenerated-chemiluminescent detection of quinolone residues in biological fluid after effective separation by capillary electrophoresis. Enrofloxacin, levofloxacin and ciprofloxacin can be assayed in the range of 3.0×10−8–5.0×10−6gmL−1 within 10min. The relative standard deviations of the signal intensity and the migration time were less than 4.9 and 2.4% for a standard sample containing 1.0×10−7gmL−1 of each quinolone (n=5), respectively. The presented method has been successfully applied to determine the amounts of quinolones in pig urine after clean-up by C18 solid phase extraction column.

    ABSTRACT: We have developed a heterologous direct competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and a visual colloidal gold-based immunochromatographic assay (CGIA) for simultaneous determination of ofloxacin, marbofloxacin, and fleroxacin residues in milk using polyclonal antibodies. The half-maximum inhibition concentrations (IC50) of ofloxacin, marbofloxacin, fleroxacin, and limits of detection (LODs; calculated as IC15 values) are between 0.20 and 0.53ng mL−1, and between 0.02 and 0.05ng mL−1, respectively. The average recoveries range from of 78% to 113%, and the coefficients of variation of intra- and inter-assays are between 2 and 11%, and 3 to 19%, respectively. The LODs for ofloxacin, marbofloxacin, fleroxacin in milk are between 3.5 and 8.9ng mL−1. The visual minimum detection limit of the optimized CGIA is 2ng mL−1 for milk samples. The detection process can be completed within 10min. The strips can be stored at 4°C for 8weeks without significant loss of activity. The results of the analysis of spiked samples showed that the CGIA can be applied to preliminary, fast, and on-site screening of milk samples. The ELISA and CGIA allow for a rapid, sensitive, and low-cost determination of (fluoro)quinolones residues in milk samples.
