Application Note: Direct Injection of Orange Juice for the Rapid Detection of the Fungicide Carbendazim
29 November 2012

In this application note, a simple dilute-and-shoot method for the detection of carbendazim residues in orange juice at concentrations below 10 parts per billion (ppb) is described. The ultra-high sensitivity of Xevo TQ-S Mass Spectrometer coupled with the ACQUITY UPLC I-Class System allows direct analysis of trace amounts of carbendazim in orange juice samples. By eliminating sample preparation the method development and optimization process is simplified and samples can be analyzed at a higher throughput.
