Application Note: Evaluating Inert Flow Path Components and Entire Flow Path for GC/MS/MS Pesticide Analysis
17 April 2013
Flow path inertness plays a critical role in pesticide analysis accuracy and precision, especially for active analytes such as organophosphate pesticides and other sensitive pesticides and trace levels. In this application note an inert flow path was developed and compared to a corresponding standard flow path. The results demonstrate that when using the Agilent Inert Flow Path, significant improvements were obtained, including higher response, better peak shape, better calibration linearity and entire flow path consistency.
