Analysis of twenty-seven GC‑amenable pesticides regulated in the cannabis industry in North America
26 February 2021

Twenty-seven GC-amenable pesticides and their isomers regulated in the cannabis industry in North America stand out as challenging to analyze using liquid chromatography-triple quadrupole mass spectrometry (TQ LC/MS) with electrospray ionization (ESI). In this application note, Agilent Technologies outlines a complete workflow that achieves required limits of detection (LOD), limits of quantitation (LOQ), accuracy, and precision defined by the California Bureau of Cannabis Control (BCC) and Health Canada in dry cannabis flower.
