DETERMINATION OF EIGHT BOUND NITROFURAN RESIDUES, USING A RAPID MICROWAVE-ASSISTED SAMPLE PREPARATION APPROACH WITH UHPLC-MS/MS DETECTION
Nitrofurans are a class of antibacterial agents that are banned from use in food producing animals on several continents, due to their undesirable toxicological properties. Methodology for analysing these banned compounds is standard in most countries, with analysis primarily focusing on four main compounds, detected as their marker residues, AOZ, AMOZ, AHD and SEM. Analysis of nitrofurans using the bound residue approach provides the most sensitive and selective detection, but it is time consuming and leads to longer sample turnaround times.
