    ABSTRACT: A novel analytical method employing solid-phase extraction (SPE) coupled with ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS) was developed for the simultaneous determination of 30 hormones in anti-ageing functional foods (capsules, powders and tablets). The analytes were extracted with acetic acid-acetonitrile (1-99 v/v), methanol and acetone, respectively. The extract was purified using a combined column, followed by analyte detection with electrospray ionisation in positive- or negative-ion modes. The results indicated that the 30 compounds had good linear correlations in the range of 1-1000 μg kg(-1), and the correlation coefficients were above 0.99. The limits of detection (LOD) and limits of quantification (LOQ) were 0.03-2 and 0.1-5 μg kg(-1), respectively. The average recovery of 30 compounds at the three spiked levels varied from 74.7% to 124.1%, and the relative standard deviation (RSD) was 2.4-15.0%. This method was applied to the analysis of hormones in 14 real samples of which seven hormones (such as estrone, dienestrol) were detected in four samples, but the remainder of the hormones were not detected. The developed method is sensitive, efficient, reliable and applicable to real samples.

    ABSTRACT: A novel method was established for the determination and identification of biurea in flour and its products using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). The biurea was extracted with water and oxidized to azodicarbonamide by potassium permanganate. The azodicarbonamide was then derivatized using sodium p-toluene sulfinate solution. The separation was performed on a Shimpak XR-ODS II column (150 mm x 2.0 mm, 2.2 microm) using the mobile phase composed of acetonitrile and 2 mmol/L ammonium acetate aqueous solution (containing 0.2% (v/v) formic acid) with a gradient elution program. Tandem mass spectrometric detection was performed in multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) scan mode with a positive electrospray ionization (ESI(+)) source. The method used stable isotope internal standard quantitation. The calibration curve showed good linearity over the range of 1-20 000 microg/kg (R2 = 0.999 9). The limit of quantification was 5 microg/kg for biurea spiked in flour and its products. At the spiking levels of 5.0, 10.0 and 50.0 microg/kg in different matrices, the average recovery o biurea was 78.3%-108.0% with the relative standard deviations (RSDs) < or = 5.73%. The method developed is novel, reliable and sensitive with wide linear range, and can be used to determine the biurea in flour and its products.

    ABSTRACT: A screening and confirmation method for the determination of l-hydroxyproline as a target compound in milk and dairy products using high-performance liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry was developed. The samples were lyophilized after acidic hydrolysis, followed by cleanup with graphitized carbon black to remove pigments. Hyp was separated by a hydrophilic interaction chromatographic column and analyzed by high-performance liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry working with multiple-reaction monitoring mode using an electrospray ionization interface in positive ion mode. Average recoveries in spiked milk and dairy products ranged from 68.0 to 101.1% with relative standard deviations between 2.0 and 11.7% (n = 7). A reagent-matched standard calibration curve was used for quantification of Hyp, with linear correlation coefficient (R2) > 0.99 in the concentration range of 0.1–100 μg mL−1. The limits of quantification were from 0.25 to 5 mg kg−1, which were usually sufficient to verify the l-hydroxyproline in samples. The confirmation concentration of l-hydroxyproline ranged from 10 to 50 mg kg−1.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved

    ABSTRACT: An ultra-performance liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometric detection (UPLC-MS/MS) method was developed for the detection of flunixin residues in rabbit tissues. The samples were extracted with acidic acetonitrile, defatted with n-hexane, and then purified by HLB solid-phase extraction cartridge. Analysis was carried out on UPLC-ESI-MS/MS working with multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) mode. The limits of detection (LODs) of the method were 0.3-0.8μgkg(-1) and limits of quantification (LOQs) were 1.0-3.0μgkg(-1) in rabbit tissues, respectively. In all fortified samples at a concentration range of 1.0-300.0μgkg(-1), mean recoveries were 61.7-115.7% with relative standard deviations (RSDs) below 16%. Residue depletion of flunixin in rabbit was conducted after oral administration at a dose of 5mgkg(-1) of body weight. The average concentrations for flunixin measured 2h post-administration in kidney and intestine were significantly higher than in liver, heart and muscle. The concentrations for flunixin in all rabbit tissues were below the LOD or not detected in all tissues after 96h administration of drug. A minimum withdrawal time of 21h was indicated for residue levels in heart, liver, kidney, intestine and muscle below the maximum residue limits (MRLs).

    ABSTRACT: A multi-residue analysis method for simultaneous determination of nine subclasses of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in milk and dairy products by ultra-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS) has been established. The sample was initially extracted and deproteinized with ascorbic acid buffer (0.01M, pH 3) and acetonitrile-ethyl acetate mixture, followed by centrifugation and evaporation, then reconstituted with acetonitrile-0.1% formic acid (1+1, v/v). After removal of lipid material by n-hexane, the sample was analyzed by UPLC-MS/MS with electro-spray ionization (ESI) interface in Multiple Reaction Monitoring (MRM) mode. The range of limits of detection (LODs) and limits of quantification (LOQs) were 0.03-0.30μg/kg and 0.10-1.00μg/kg, respectively. The recoveries in milk, milk powder, yogurt, processed cheese and milk beverage ranged from 61.7% to 117%, and the relative standard deviations (RSDs) were less than 17.9% at three spiked levels (1, 10 and 100 times of the LOQ). Matrix effects were also investigated and it was determined the signals of the analytes were suppressed from 9.4% to 76.6% in processed cheese. The proposed method was also applied to incurred sample analysis. The results proved that this method was suitable for the simultaneous determination of nine subclasses of NSAIDs residues in milk and dairy products.

    ABSTRACT: A method based on HPLC with UV detection was developed for the quantitative determination of chloramphenicol (CAP) residues in aquatic products. The samples were extracted with ethyl acetate-ammonium hydroxide (98 + 2, v/v), followed by a cleanup step using an immunoaffinity column. The analytes were determined by HPLC-UV. Optimal conditions for the extraction and cleanup procedures are described. The linear regression equation was y = 91.47x - 8.60 with R = 0.9998 (y = peak area and x = CAP concentration) and showed a good reproducibility. The LOQ was 0.25 microg/kg for determining CAP spiked in the aquatic products. The mean recoveries of CAP from fish and shrimp samples fortified at 0.25-1.0 microg/kg were 88.7-93.1 and 92.0-97.3%, respectively; the repeatability RSDs were less than 8.1%. It was concluded that the method is simple, highly sensitive, and low cost for quantitatively measuring CAP residues in aquatic products. Analyte identification was confirmed by HPLC/MSIMS analysis.

    ABSTRACT: A high performance liquid chromatography method with visible detection (HPLC-VIS) for the determination of malachite green (MG), crystal violet (CV), leucomalachite green (LMG), and leucocrystal violet (LCV) in fish has been developed after clean-up through an immunoaffinity column (IAC). Residues were simultaneously extracted from fish muscle with acetonitrile and ammonium acetate buffer. The leuco-forms, LMG and LCV, were oxidized quantitatively to the chromic CV and MG by reaction with 2,3-dichloro-5,6-dicyano-1,4-benzoquinone. Extracts were then purified on an IAC which prepared by immobilizing the anti-MG-CV antibodies by the sol-gel method. Finally, the eluents were analyzed by HPLC-VIS. The limits of detection were 0.15, 0.1, 0.18 and 0.14ng/g for MG, CV, LMG and LCV, respectively. The average recoveries in samples fortified with MG, CV, LMG and LCV over the range 0.5-10ng/g were from 71.6% to 96.8% with RSDs of 5.1-12.3% (n=6). This novel method was confirmed by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry with electrospray interface in positive mode using multiple reaction monitoring.

    ABSTRACT: Matrix effects in determination of three β-receptor agonists including salbutamol (SAL), clenbuterol, and terbutaline in animal-derived foodstuffs were studied by ultra-performance LC-MS/MS with cleanup of immunoaffinity SPE column (IAC). Some animal tissue samples including pig liver, swine muscle, and fish muscle were hydrolyzed by the mixed enzyme solution or HCl solution, and the cleanup efficiencies with SAL IAC, MCX SPE column, and C(18) -SCX tandem columns were examined and compared by using spiked experiments. The results showed that the matrix effects in the determination of SAL and terbutaline can be eliminated with SAL IAC cleanup, and the average recoveries of SAL were 77.4∼81.5%, 79.0∼80.3%, and 85.0∼87.2% in pig liver, swine muscle, and fish muscle, respectively. The decision limit (ccα) and detection capability (ccβ) for SAL in pig liver were 0.02 and 0.05 μg/kg, respectively.

    ABSTRACT: Utilizing a solid phase extraction column (MCT) containing mixed hydrophilic functional gel and cation exchange sorbent, a sensitive and rapid HPLC-MS/MS method for simultaneously determining the residues of melamine (MEL) and cyanuric acid (CYA) in human foodstuffs was developed. MEL and CYA in egg, pork, liver, kidney and pork, shrimp, sausage casing, honey, soybean milk, soybean powder and dairy product were extracted using acetonitrile/water, defatted with hexane and isolated using MCT solid phase extraction column. The residues were separated upon a hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC) column and analyzed by electrospray ionization under negative-positive switched mode on a triplequadrupole mass spectrometry. The selected reaction monitoring was performed on [M+H](+) of m/z 127.9 to provide the transition of 127>85 and 127>68 (MEL) while the [M-H](-) of m/z 127.1 was selected as the precursor ion for CYA resulting in product ions m/z 85 and 42. Isotope labeled internal standard ((15)N(3)-MEL and (13)C(3)-CYA) and matrix-matched calibration were both used to observe the recovery to be 70.0-129.6% and 70.0-128.9% with RSD of 1.4-23.3% and 1.5-21.7% for MEL and CYA, respectively (n=6). All the LODs and LOQs of MEL and CYA were less than 39.4 and 99.1μgkg(-1), respectively, in 18 matrices, which were sensitive enough for quantitative analysis. This method has been proven effective in simultaneous determination of melamine and cyanuric acid when inspecting unknown and positive samples.
