During the International Scientific Congress Dioxin 22 in New Orleans, Mr Kay Kelterer (GALAB Laboratories GmbH, Hamburg, Germany) presented great results of the analysis of PCDD/F and PCB in consumer products after pressurised fluid extraction (PFE). The content of his study was the establishment of a universal method based on the X-TRACTION® from LCTech for a variation of sample matrices such as textiles, nonwovens or nappies.

Results were requested in terms of:

  • one method for all sample matrices
  • LOQ in the low ng/kg range (2,3,7,8 TCDD 0.05 ng/kg)
  • QC performance criteria based on US EPA 1613, 1668 and EU regulations for food/feed; such as recovery rates for internal 13C -labelled standards

For the development of this extraction method, the team of GALAB-Laboratories GmbH also used the DEXTech16
from LCTech for automatic clean-up.
