ABSTRACT:  A confirmation procedure is described for detection of residues of six tetracyclines in bovine milk, and oxytetracycline in shrimp. Residues are extracted from milk or shrimp tissue using metal chelate affinity chromatography. The extracts are desalted, further concentrated using polymeric solid-phase extraction, and chromatographed on a polymeric reversed-phase column. Analysis is by methane negative ion chemical ionization on a quadrupole mass spectrometer using a particle beam interface. Data are acquired in partial scan mode, monitoring from m/z 378 to m/z 480. The procedure was validated with control milk and shrimp, fortified milk (30 ng/ml) and shrimp (100 ng/g), and milk and tissue from animals treated with the drugs
