Meeting the European Commission Performance Criteria for the Use of Triple Quadrupole GC-MS/MS as a Confirmatory Method for PCDD/Fs in Food and Feed Samples
24 Dec 2014
In this application note, the performance of the Thermo Scientific™ TSQ™ 8000 Evo triple quadrupole GC-MS/MS for the analysis of PCDD/Fs was assessed. For this, both solvent standards, and food and feed samples were used to evaluate the instrument performance against the new criteria for dioxin confirmation. Additionally, a direct comparison of the results obtained from food and feed sample extracts using the TSQ 8000 Evo GC-MS/MS with those from a GC-HRMS was made.
