Abstract

A simple and efficient method was developed for simultaneousanalysis of five illegal residual β2-agonists in cattle hair. β2-Agonistswere quantified by ultra high performance liquid chromatographycoupled with electrospray ionisation tandem mass spectrometryoperating in positive multiple-reaction monitoring mode. The methodwas validated as quantitative confirmatory method according to theEU Decision 2002/657/EC: instrumental linearity, specificity, precision,recovery, decision limit (CCα) and detection capability (CCβ) wereevaluated. The recovery were greater than 90% and the methodappeared suitable for the control of these β2-agonists in cattle hairsamples with LOQ values between 4.9 and 5.5 μg/kg. This methodcould represent a simple and cheap approach to confirm β2-agonistscontamination of cattle for feeding in a not invasive way and beforeslaughter operations.
