Validated Analytical Workflow Facilitates the Routine Determination of Pesticides in Food Samples
A new workflow is designed to provide a validated analytical method combining advanced high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and triple quadrupole mass spectrometry capabilities for the reliable and sensitive quantitation of pesticides in complex sample matrices. This is designed to help food testing laboratories more efficiently comply with global regulatory requirements.
The Thermo Scientific Pesticide Explorer workflow is a comprehensive analytical solution that brings together the sample preparation, hardware, and software capabilities required by food testing laboratories for the targeted analysis of multi-class pesticides. Easily configured to meet the needs of individual laboratories, the Pesticide Explorer workflow is designed to improve productivity throughout the preparation, separation, detection, and analysis of pesticides in challenging food samples.
The robust workflow consists of the Thermo Scientific Vanquish Flex Binary UHPLC System with the Thermo Scientific TSQ Quantis Triple Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer; verified consumables, such as the Thermo Scientific HyperSep Dispersive SPE Mylar Pouches (QuEChERS) and Thermo Scientific Accucore aQ C18 Endcapped LC columns; and analytical software solutions, including Thermo Scientific TraceFinder and Thermo Scientific Chromeleon Chromatography Data System (CDS)software.
Thermo Fisher Scientific is showcasing the new analytical workflow during the 2019 Annual Meeting & Exposition of the Association of Official Agricultural Chemists (AOAC 2019), being held September 6–12, at Booth #409 at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel, Denver.
