Abstract:
Oxytetracycline (OTC) residue in catfish muscle was screened by dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction (DLLME) and europium-sensitized luminescence (ESL). After extraction in EDTA, HCl, and acetonitrile, cleanup was carried out by DLLME, and ESL was measured at microgram = 385 nm and wavelength = 620 nm using a portable fluorometer. The screening threshold was set at T=x-3sigma2, where x2 and s2 were mean and standard deviation of twenty catfish muscle samples spiked at 2 ug/g, the tolerance set by Food and Drug Administration. Among 49 samples randomly spiked with OTC at 0-4 ug/g, 43 were screened correctly without false negative, but 6 negatives were classified as presumptive positives. This rapid, reliable, and low-cost method reduced usage of chlorinated solvents, eliminated solid phase extraction, and significantly improved sample throughput.
