According to Priego-Capote and Luque de Castro (2004), ultrasonicassisted extraction is characterized by high speed of analysis and limited solvent and sample consumption. On the contrary, however, Beyer et al. (2008) and Sparr Eskilsson and Björklund (2000) reported that this technique requires long extraction time, repeated extractions, and large volumes of solvents, whereas according to Fidalgo-Used et al. (2007), it also requires filtration of the extract after extraction. To study organochlorines in crustaceans and fish species, Borgå et Accelerated solvent extraction (ASE) is also known as pressurized fluid extraction (PFE) or pressurized liquid extraction (PLE).

To solve this problem Sjödin et al. (2004) used a solidphase dispersion of diatomaceous earth in the SPE cartridge to determine PCBs. This permitted the extraction of milk without the inconvenience of loosing part of the lipids. Matrix solid-phase dispersion Matrix solid-phase dispersion (MSPD), a tissue disruption/extraction method, uses a mortar and pestle to blend octadecylsilylderivatized silica (C18) or other chemically Analysis of PCBs in Food modified solid supports with the tissue sample (Crouch and Barker 1997).

2002). Järemo et al. (2000) have added basic alumina to selectively extract PCBs from model fat samples (lard fat and phospholipidic mixture obtained from egg yolk) using SFE. 1%. Punín Crespo and Lage Yusti (2005) have used SFE to extract PCBs from seaweed mixed with alumina. Bayarri et al. (2001) have extracted persistent organic pollutants (POPs), including PCBs from freeze-dried edible Adriatic fishes. sary to separate PCBs from other components as much as possible prior to gas chromatography (GC) analysis in order to limit coelution problems.
