Abstract A confirmatory method for the determination of residues of nine non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and one metabolite in animal muscles has been developed. After enzymatic hydrolysis samples were extracted with acetonitrile and cleaned up using alumina and C(18) SPE cartridges. Liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry was used for the separation and determination of analytes. The method was validated in bovine muscles, according to the Commission Decision 2002/657/EC criteria. Applicability of the method in the analysis of swine, horse and chicken muscles was checked by precision and recovery experiment. The influence of matrix effect on the quantification of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs residues was investigated. The method was used for the confirmation of phenylbutazone and oxyphenbutazone in horse muscle sample. Copyright 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
