Application Note: Increasing productivity in pesticide residue analysis by GC-MS and LC-MS
26 February 2020

Today’s high throughput food laboratories require reliable and timely pesticide residue analysis of varied food samples. To gain the highest productivity of the analytical instrumentation, the JetClean Self-Cleaning Ion Source was successfully applied to pesticide residue analysis, significantly reducing the need for manual source cleaning and increasing the sample throughput of the GC/MS system. Similarly, applying the StreamSelect (SS) configuration to LC/MS systems eliminates the idle time of the MS, and increases the LC/MS system throughput. Both the JetClean and the StreamSelect operations are executed automatically using MassHunter SW.
