UCT QuEChERS Cited in Agro-Industry Article

July 3rd, 2018

In a recent paper published in Food Chemistry by Claudio Alister et al., (oi: https://doi.org/10.1016/ j.foodchem.2018.06.090), A UCT’s QuEChERS blend containing 4 g magnesium sulfate (MgSO4), 0.5 g of disodium citrate (C6H6Na2O7), 0.5 g of trisodium citrate (Na3C6H5O7) and 1 g of sodium chloride (NaCl) was employed in the primary extraction of  pesticides from prunes. In the secondary clean up stage, 1.5 g MgSO4 and 0.25 g of PSA (UCT Selectra®) were used.
