Validation of Screening Method for Residues of Diethylstilbestrol, Dienestrol, Hexestrol, and Zeranol in Bovine Urine Using Immunoaffinity Chromatography and Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry
Abstract:A method was developed, using commercially available immunoaffinity chromatography cleanup cartridges, followed by detection by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry, to screen for residues of the hormone growth promotants diethylstilbestrol, dienestrol, hexestrol, and zeranol in bovine urine. The single-laboratory, in-house validation included assessment of recoveries, repeatability, linearity of response, detection capability, and specificity (cross-reactivity) with a suite of antibiotics and other hormonal growth promotants. The method was validated for screening at a target concentration of 2.0 μg/L in urine. The detection capabilities for the analytes were diethylstilbestrol, 0.24; dienestrol, 0.15; hexestrol, 0.84; and zeranol, 0.28 μg/L.
