Do you require fast and cost-effective solutions for the analysis of pesticides in food? If so, this on-demand webinar describes the development and implementation of two separate complete workflow solutions based on LC-MS/MS and IC-MS/MS for the routine quantitation of pesticide residues in food products.
The routine quantitation of pesticide residues in food products is one of the most important and demanding applications in food safety. Despite the recent technological advancements in LC-MS, it is still challenging to quantify hundreds of LC-amenable pesticides with a single, robust, and sensitive workflow solution. In addition, polar pesticides present a unique challenge, which often occur as residues in food, but are not always included in pesticide monitoring programs.
This presentation describes the development and implementation of two separate complete workflow solutions based on LC-MS/MS and IC-MS/MS. These ready-to-go solutions have been validated in a variety of matrices across multiple laboratories. In addition, customized software used for data acquisition and processing allows users to rapidly implement these methods and enhance productivity.
By viewing this webinar you will learn ...
- to address critical challenges in targeted quantitation of a large panel of pesticides by LC-MS/MS in food laboratories using a generic QuEChERS extraction protocol with minimal clean-up
- a new, validated IC-MS/MS based workflow for the robust, sensitive and reliable determination of 15 polar anionic pesticides and metabolites at low µg/kg levels in a single run.
