Rapid and automated screening of priority β-agonists in urine using high resolution LC-MS technology

Issue 4 2011  •  6 September 2011  •  Thorsten Bernsmann and Peter Fürst, Chemical and Veterinary Analytical Institute, and Michal Godula, Thermo Fisher Scientific

Beta-agonists (β-agonists) are synthetically produced compounds that are widely known for their bronchodilatory and tocolytic effects. At higher doses, these substances also have anabolic effects and can promote live weight gain in food producing animals. Clenbuterol is the most commonly used β-agonist for growth-promoting purposes, despite the fact that there have been documented cases when consumption of liver and meat from animals treated with clenbuterol has resulted in serious human intoxication1. Increased levels of β-agonists and their analogs have been associated with acute toxic effects such as heart palpitation, muscle tremor, tetany and severe migraines.

Due to their adverse effects, the use of β-agonists has been banned by the European Union and other regulatory agencies worldwide. Nevertheless, monitoring programmes have shown that β-agonists are still illegally used by food producers and moreover, newly developed analogs with modified structures are being continuously introduced in routine practice. As a result, there is a clear need for quick and simple screening methods to routinely and accurately monitor levels of β-agonists in samples of animal origin, including urine, plasma and tissues.

Ensuring global food safety through multi-residue monitoring of pesticides

Issue 6 2010  •  15 December 2010  •  Gerry Broski, Food Safety Director, Thermo Fisher Scientific and Renzo Boni, Laboratory Manager, Conserve Italia

There are currently over one thousand recognised pesticides utilised in the production of foodstuffs worldwide, with the requirement for pesticide usage growing as consumer demand for food at a low cost and out of season increases. With pesticides such as lindane and carbendazim linked with cancer, fertility problems and hormone disruption, strict regulations governing pesticide usage have been globally implemented with Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) for pesticides being imposed. The general level of MRLs acceptable in food products has recently been reduced in the EU and Japan to below 0.01mg/kg (10 ppb).
