Development of a community method for the detection of clenbuterol and salbutamol in animal feed

Objective



The objective of this project is to complete the development of an Official modular Community Confirmatory Method for the detection of beta-agonists in animal feed. The first part of this work has been carried out in the BCR extraction testing study - clenbuterol and salbutamol in animal feed (1991 - 1992). The results of this experimental work are available since July 1993.

The work programme contains two main parts. The first part will involve a clean-up and an end-methods testing study. Upon the basis of both studies and a previous one (the extraction testing study), a candidate official Community Confirmatory Method will be proposed. In the second part, a 2nd intercomparison will be carried out in order to finally validate the candidate official Community Confirmatory Method.
