The complete QuEChERS Mini Kits are grouped based upon the QuEChERS method you select, your fruit or vegetable matrix type, and sample size required.

Simply select your QuEChERS method which defines the extraction salts and buffers that are contained in preweighed packets. Next, select your fruit or vegetable matrix type which determines the preferred sorbent cleanup compositions and finally select the size of your sample and extract required for your analysis. The selection of sample size (10 or 15 grams) determines the amount of extraction salts contained in a salt packet and the extract size (1, 6, or 8mLs) determines the amount of sorbents contained in convenient 2 or 15mL centrifuge tubes.

How to use QuEChERs - the Basics

The original QuEChERS method is non-buffered, and was developed by M. Anastassiades, S.J. Lehotay, D. Stanjnbaher and F. J. Schenck in 2003 and published in the Journal of AOAC.
