Application Note: LC-MS/MS Analysis of Pesticide Residues in Rice and Unexpected Detection of Residues in an Organic Rice Sample
12 March 2015

The use of pesticides in various stages of cultivation of basmati rice has increased in order to improve its production yield. A multi-residue pesticide method has been developed for the determination of pesticides in basmati rice. This application note shows the analysis of over 200 pesticides using a simple QuEChERS sample preparation procedure, followed by UltraPerformance LC® (UPLC®) couple to tandem quadrupole mass spectrometry.
