Application of QuEChERS in the Detection of Pesticide Residues in Food

It is not difficult to find the early application of QuEChERS in pesticide residue detection in China, mainly for single pesticide detection, and most of the extraction and purification targets are carbamate, organophosphorus, and pyrethroid. With the development of technology, the QuEChERS method has been applied in the detection of pesticide residues in fruits and vegetables, as well as in the extraction and purification of samples with low water content in cereals.

And this year, due to the continuous progress of technology and equipment and the efforts of researchers, the application of the QuEChERS method in China is not limited to traditional agricultural products such as fruits, vegetables, cereals, and so on, and its scope of application has been greatly expanded.

Such as high-viscosity honey, high-fat content oil sticks, high-fat, and high-protein milk and milk powder, as well as animal foods with complex matrix components, such as chicken liver, pork liver, and fish. In addition, this method has also been applied to the detection of pesticide residues in traditional Chinese medicine, tea, and other products with Chinese characteristics.
