English Abstract This report presents results of an inventory of methods
of analysis for residues of clenbuterol, cimaterol, salbutamol, terbutaline,
ractopamine and L-644,969, all so callen "beta-agonist", illegally used in
slaughter animals production for growth promoting purposes. For L-644,969
no methods were found. for ractopamine and cimaterol only a very limited
number of methods have been found in the (public) scientific literature.
For clenbuterol, salbutaamol and terbutaline numerous methods can be found
for as well (edible) tissues, urine, blood, pharmaceutical formulations as
feed. However no simple, fast and reliable method can be found for the
determination of these drugs in edible tissues. (Multi)immunoaffinity
chromatography in combination with GC-MS is recommended.
