Compounds in Honey Are Key to Activation of Detoxification Genes in Honey Bees
Three scientists from the University of Illinois (Urbana, Illinois) have detected key compounds in honey using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) that can up-regulate detoxification genes. HPLC was performed on ethyl acetate honey samples identifying four compounds that induce detoxification genes, potentially required for the detoxification of pesticides.

European Commission Bans Use of Three Neonicortinoid Pesticides Implicated in Honey Bee Population Decline
The European Commission has imposed a ban on three neonicortinoid pesticides within the European Union – clothianidin, imidacloprid, and thiametoxam. This follows the publication of a series of reviews into the risks posed by the insecticides by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) in Parma, Italy, in January 2013. These reviews stem from the publication of numerous chromatographic studies, which suggest a link between pesticide exposure and “colony collapse disorder”– the mysterious decline of honey bee populations.

Multi-Residue Pesticide Analysis in Herbal Products Using Accelerated Solvent Extraction with Triple Quadrupole
Tuessday, June 25, 2013
8:00 am PDT/ 11:00 am EDT/ 16:00 BST/ 17:00 CEDT
As the human population grows and farm acreage shrinks, the use of pesticides has increased, in order to produce food efficiently. Regulatory organizations are therefore requiring manufacturers to present test data on pesticide levels in food to address public safety concerns. Sensitive and robust routine screening methods to analyze hundreds of potential contaminants are therefore necessary.
