Melamine and Cyanuric Acid Extracted from Baby Formula on ZB-XLB-HT by MSD

Sample Preparation Details

Part No:8B-S049-FBJ
Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) procedure:Note: The solvent volumes shown below are for a 200 mg bed mass. The solvent volumes will need to be adjusted for a smaller or larger bed mass.
Load:Protein Precipitation:
Weigh 0.2 g (200 mg) of Baby formula (Enfamil) in a 15 mL plastic centrifuge tube, add 1 mL Lukewarm water to make a homogeneous mix, vortex and add 100 uL of 0.2N HCl followed by addition of 50 uL of 4.0 ug/mL of individual stock solution of melamine and cyanuric acid and 50 uL of each internal standard (at 15.0 ug/mL).
Vortex 3-5 secs.
Add 3 ml of ACN, vortex and centrifuge at 6000Xg for 10 mins and then collect the supernatant to carry out SPE in the subsequent step. (Spiked conc. of analyte = 200 ng, IS spiked conc.= 750 ng; pH of sample is 5.5; melamine amino-15N3, and Cyanuric-13C3 used as I.S.)
Final Prep and Analysis: Inject: 0.1 µL on GC / Mass Selective (MSD) @ amu / (325 °C)
