Determination of Pesticides in Grapes, Baby Food and Wheat Flour by Automated Online Sample Preparation LC-MS/MS
16 September 2015
European Regulation 396/2005 sets maximum residue levels of pesticides in different products of plant and animal origin. In recent years the QuEChERS (Quick, Easy, Cheap, Effective, Rugged and Safe) method has become widely adopted for handling fruit and vegetables. This method describes a novel sample preparation technique as a possible alternative to the QuEChERS method for high throughput pesticide analysis, employing Thermo Scientific’s Transcend TLX system coupled with the TSQ Quantum Access Max triple quadrupole mass spectrometer.
