The highlight for me was a presentation from Ron Majors about ‘Just Enough’ sample preparation where Ron described how analysis by LC-MS/MS and GC-MS/MS has enabled the use of simplified sample preparation procedures. Four examples were presented: Protein precipitation in blood plasma; QuEChERS for pesticide residues; Dried Blood (Matrix) Spotting; and Pharmaceutical pollutants in river water with almost no sample preparation. The potential of reducing both time and error by reducing sample preparation is very appealing.
