Chloramphenicol (CAP) is a broad spectrum antibiotic and its use in food producing

states. In spite of it, this drug is still illicitly used in animal farming because of its ready

availability and low cost, as shown in the recent findings occurred in Spain in broiler meat.
In order to effectively monitor the occurrence of CAP residues, specific and very sensitive
analytical methods are required, not only for animal products but also for animal feed. However,

chloramphenicol in animal feed was developed and validated.
2. The method was validated according to the Commission Decision 2002/657/EC.
: ESI (-) and MRM mode
3. The validation results were very satisfactory.
- Tune: nebulizer (40psi); dry gas (8 l/min); dry temperature (350ºC) skim 1 (-23.0 V); skim2 (- 6.0 V);
4. The estimated CCα and CCβ were 10 and 12 µg/Kg, respectively.
5. By monitoring three product ions 5,5 IP´s were achieved, which provided the method with a
very high selectivity/specificity and gave a great confidence to the results.
6. The method will contribute to carry out a more complete regulatory control programme by
applying not only in animal products but also in animal feed.
