Rapid Analysis of 303 Pesticide Residues in Green Beans using Triple Quadrupole GC-MS/MS
30 September 2015
This application note demonstrates the method for analysis of 303 pesticides in green beans by using an acetonitrile extract, followed by SPE clean-up steps, and analysis by the TSQ Quantum GC-MS/MS using timed-SRM mode. The combination of triple quadrupole GC-MS/MS and ion trap GC-MS with QuEChERS sample preparation method has been investigated for the pesticide analysis in different food matrices. However, solid phase extraction (SPE) as a clean-up procedure is still the official analytical method for pesticide residues analysis in some countries.
