General description

Dispersive SPE (dSPE), often referred to as the "QuEChERS" method (Quick, Easy, Cheap, Effective, Rugged, and Safe), is modern sample prep technique that is becoming increasingly popular in the area of multi-residue pesticide analysis in food and agricultural products.

Using the QuEChERS method, food/agricultural samples are first extracted with an aqueous miscible solvent (e.g., acetonitrile) in the presence of high amounts of salts (e.g., sodium chloride and magnesium sulfate) and/or buffering agents (e.g. citrate) to induce liquid phase separation and stabilize acid and base labile pesticides, respectively. Upon shaking and centrifugation, an aliquot of the organic phase is subjected to further cleanup using SPE. Unlike traditional methods using SPE tubes, in dispersive SPE, cleanup is facilitated by mixing bulk amounts of SPE (e.g., Supelclean PSA, ENVI-Carb, and/or Discovery DSC-18) with the extract. After sample cleanup, the mixture is centrifuged and the resulting supernatant can either be analyzed directly or can be subjected to minor further treatment before analysis.

Supelco carries a line of vials and centrifuge tubes containing pre-determined amounts of salts and SPE sorbents to support the most common method configurations used today.

Application

Supel QuE citrate tube is used for the determination of pesticide residues on vegetables using various analytical techniques.

Suitability

Suitable for extracting ~10 g food/agricultural sample. The citrate is to buffer the extraction to pH 5.0 - 5.5. At this pH, most acid and base labile pesticides are stable.

Articles

Pesticide residue testing of turmeric and other (dried) spices is challenging due to their complex compositions and high matrix. An efficient SPE clean-up can be achieved by a new Dual-layer cartridge.

The odor and pungency of ginger is due to the presence of terpenes, gingerols and shogaols. These compounds contribute to the highly complex matrix of ginger, which subsequently presents a challenge in low level analyses of contaminants. A novel 2-layer SPE cartridge efficiently reduces background for pesticide determination.

Protocols

Retention occurs through polar interaction between the sorbent and analytes. Typical sample matrices that can be employed in normal-phase SPE include hydrocarbon or fatty oils diluted in a solvent like hexane, isooctane, chlorinated solvent, THF, diethyl ether, or ethyl acetate.

Related Content

QuEChERS is a ‘Quick, Easy, Cheap, Effective, Rugged and Safe’ sample cleanup method used to prepare food and agricultural samples for pesticides analysis. QuEChERS is based on the Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) technique of sample preparation.

Solid phase extraction (SPE) is a technique used for rapid, selective sample preparation and purification prior to chromatographic analysis (e.g. HPLC, GC, TLC). SPE is used to exchange sample matrices, concentrate analytes, and remove interferences and contaminants to improve data and protect the analytical column.
