Application Note: Rapid Pesticide Screening and Identification Using the High Resolution All Ions MS/MS Technique
26 March 2014
Agilent Technologies has developed the All Ions MS/MS technique for the screening and identification of pesticides in a single analytical run. The technique uses an accurate mass LC/TOF or Q-TOF and features easy setup of the acquisition method, verification of the pesticide compounds using MS/MS spectral libraries, and chromatographic coelution of the precursor and product ions, and rapid development of a quantitative method including product ions as qualifiers. In the application note, the All Ions MS/MS technique was used to rapidly screen, quantify, and identify pesticides in food matrices.
