      A review of analytical methods for the determination of aminoglycoside and macrolide residues in food matrices
      Tara MCGLINCHEY*, P.A. RAFTER, Fiona REGAN, D. GILLIAN, P. MCMAHON (*Department of Agriculture, Fisheries & Food, Central Meat Control, Backweston Laboratory Complex, Youngs Cross, Celbridge, Co., Kildare, Ireland)

      Anal. Chim. Acta 624 (1), 1-15 (2008). Aminoglycosides and macrolides are important antibiotics for veterinary medicine and are widely used in the treatment of bacterial disease, and as feed additives for growth promotion. As a result the European commission set strict criteria for monitoring residues and requires testing for low levels of aminoglycosides and macrolides in foods. Therefore the development of fast, reliable, and sensitive methods for the extraction and subsequent analysis of these antibiotics is of great interest. The review discusses analytical methods for both extraction and determination of antibiotics in various food matrices focusing on the last 10 years. Extraction and clean-up methods such as deproteinization and solid-phase extraction are described, and various screening methods including TLC, EI, CE, microbiological assays, and LC combined with MS are reviewed.

      Analysis of lycopene in nutritional supplements by silica gel high-performance thin-layer chromatography with visible-mode densitometry
      J.D. VASTA*, J. SHERMA (*Lafayette College, Department of Chemistry, Easton PA 18042-1782, USA)

      Acta Chromatographica 20(4), 673-683 (2008). Presentation of a quantitative method for the analysis of lycopene in nutritional supplements consumed to reduce the risk of prostate cancer and other forms of cancer and cardiovascular disease. HPTLC on silica gel with petroleum ether – dichloromethane 91. Quantification by densitometry at 416 nm. Four products containing 300 µg, 3 mg, 5 mg, or 10 mg lycopene plus other ingredients were quantified using a lycopene standard the measured amounts ranged from 77.7 to 98.1 % of the stated label values. The accuracy by spiked blank analysis was within 1.90 % of theoretical values for the 3 mg softgels and 1.10 % of theoretical values for the 10 mg softgels. The precision of replicate analyses showed a RSD of 1.44 % for the 10 mg softgels and 2.39 % RSD for the spiked blank for the 3 mg softgels. The results obtained for Lycopene standards available from two other companies showed 55.6, 57.6, and 20.0 % of the minimum amount expected from the stated label values.
