The QuEChERS method has become the industry standard for pesticide clean-up and extraction of a wide variety of food samples. Unfortunately, this process is a manual, multi-step process that can be time consuming and riddled with error. Furthermore, there are so many different QuEChERS kits for various food types that it can be overwhelming to determine which kit is best for any given sample.

In this application note, we discuss the use of the EDGE® automated extraction system with Q-Matrix® Hydra. The EDGE had the same recovery as traditional QuEChERS methodology but in an automated platform that included sample rinsing, filtration, and system washing.
