NotesSample Preparation:
Sample: 10 g of homogenized spinach, fortified with pesticides and QuEChERS Internal Standard Mix for GC/MS Analysis (cat.# 33267).

Extraction: 10 mL acetonitrile added, 1 minute shake, then addition of Q-sep Q110 (cat.# 26235), 1 minute shake, centrifuge with Q-sep 3000 Centrifuge (cat.# 26230).

dSPE: Cleanup procedure according to EN 15662 method, add control standard anthracene (cat.# 33264) to 1 mL extract, add this to one of two different Q-sep dSPE tubes (either cat.# 26218 or cat.# 26219 ), shake, centrifuge.
