The QuEChERS method has been shown to be practical for pesticide analysis on a number of different sample types and is increasingly being employed on more difficult matrices. Unfortunately, this process is a manual multi-step process that can be time consuming. With so many different types of food matrices and pesticide residues to be analyzed there is a need for a faster simplified extraction method. Furthermore, some matrices either by their nature or their economic value, can be difficult to analyze with just the QuEChERS method alone. In this application note we propose the EDGE™ as an alternative to the QuEChERS method for the extraction of pesticides from food matrices including known difficult matrices. With its patent pending Q-Cup Technology™ the EDGE can extract a difficult food sample, including the dispersive solid phase cleanup, in less than 5 minutes in one automated step.
