Nitrofurans are a class of antibacterial agents that are banned from use in food producing animals on several continents, due to their undesirable toxicological properties. Methodology for analysing these banned
compounds is standard in most countries, with analysis primarily focusing on four main compounds, detected as their marker residues, AOZ, AMOZ, AHD and SEM. Analysis of nitrofurans using the bound residue approach
provides the most sensitive and selective detection, but it is time consuming and leads to longer sample turnaround times. The aim of this work was to extend the scope of analysis and develop a high throughput method to include four additional nitrofuran compounds, detected as their markers dinitro-salicylic acid hydrazine (DNSAH), hydroxybenzhydrazide (HBH), oxamic acid hydrazide (OAH) and aminoguanidine (AG). The analysis time was shortened from 4 days to 1.5 days by developing a rapid sample preparation approach, using a microwave-assisted derivatisation step and a modified QuEChERS-based extraction. The limits of quantification (LOQ) for all analytes ranged from ranged from 0.02 to 0.04 µg kg-1, with the exception of semicarbazide and aminoguanidine (LOQ = 0.2 µg kg-1).
