Multiresidue gas chromatographic method for determining organochlorine pesticides in meats: validation study for swine and beef fats.J Assoc Off Anal Chem. 1985 Sep-Oct; 68(5):941-4.JA
A validation of a previously studied method for determining organochlorine residues in poultry fat was conducted to extend the usefulness of the method to beef and swine fats. The validation samples consisted of 16 materials all analyzed in duplicate. Fortification levels ranged from 0.02 to 1.2 ppm for alpha-BHC, lindane, cis- and trans-chlordane, octachlor epoxide, o,p'- and p,p'-DDT, p,p'-DDE, p,p'-TDE, hexachlorobenzene, heptachlor epoxide, dieldrin, endrin, methoxychlor, mirex, and toxaphene. The average recovery was 101% with a range of 79-113%, not including toxaphene. The ranges of coefficients of variation were CVo = 0-23.37% and CVx = 3.74-26.19%. The results were comparable to the previous collaborative study of the same method for poultry fat. The extended method has been adopted official first action.
