Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: The technique of QuEChERS (Quick, Easy, Cheap, Effective, Rugged and Safe) is only 7 years old, yet it is revolutionizing the manner in which multiresidue, multiclass pesticide analysis (and perhaps beyond) is performed. Columnist Ron Majors sits down with inventors Steve Lehotay and Michelangelo Anastassiades and explores its successes, challenges and potential future directions of this growing sample preparation technique.
