Environmental pollution is a world-wide problem. Consequently, the demand for pesticide analysis in biological samples is increasing. In most cases, the availability of the test result depends on the suitability of sampling, sample preservation, and sample preparation which must satisfy the need. However, there is no reference method. This paper summarizes sampling and sample preparation and preservation methods for the case when the compound to be detected is not known.
