Dilution and cleanup strategies for QuEChERS extracts of food prior to LC-MS/MS… and Tarballs!

If you missed the newly published tour de force piece from Julie Kowalski, check it out here: “Mitigating Matrix Effects: Examination of Dilution, QuEChERS, and Calibration Strategies for LC-MS/MS Analysis of Pesticide Residues in Diverse Food Types.”

Same thing for another excellent article just published by Michelle Misselwitz, “Fingerprinting Crude Oils and Tarballs using Biomarkers and Comprehensive Two-Dimensional Gas Chromatography.”

You can view the latest titles from the Restek News page and, if you dive a bit deeper, by clicking on the view all posts link,  you’ll, well, view all posts, and get additional valuable reading material.



P.S.  I know at least one person immediately clicked on this blog post after seeing the word “tarballs”, our own Chris English, the Innovations Lab Manager at Restek, who is an extreme tarball aficionado.
