Automating fatty acid derivatization and preparation of calibration standards on an Agilent 7696A Sample Prep WorkBench for fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) analysis can provide comparable precision, better recoveries, and more accurate calibration compared to manual procedures. Hands-on time, reagent usage, and exposure to hazardous chemicals are all greatly reduced. This automated approach has been used to detect adulteration of olive oils with less expensive vegetable oils.
