Abstract

A rapid and sensitive method for the selective detection and quantification of oxytetracycline residues at the ppb level in crude extracts of bovine milk and meat is described. The technique employed is a tandem mass spectrometric method: CAD MIKE spectrometry (collisionally activated decomposition mass-analysed ion kinetic energy spectrometry). Quantification is performed by single ion monitoring of CAD species of oxytetracycline and of its internal standard.
