QuEChERS method

The QuEChERS-method  (Quick, Easy, Cheap, Effective, Rugged and Safe )  was developed to streamline extraction and detection processes for multi-residues of pesticides and veterinary drugs in complex matrices.  Work was performed by numerous collaborators but  M. Anastassiades developed the basis in 2001 and 2002 during his post-doc visit at the USDA/ARS-ERRC in the research group of Steven Lehotay.
The new method for the analysis of pesticide residues in plant material was first presented at the EPRW 2002 in Rome. The detailed method was first published in 2003 (M. Anastassiades, S. J. Lehotay, D. Stajnbaher, F.J. Schenck, JAOAC Int 86(2) 412-31.
