Application Note: Moving Your Old GC Methods to LC-MS/MS Technology to Enhance and Accelerate Environmental and Food Testing
9 June 2014

This application note highlights benefits of advanced LC- MS/MS technology over GC for the analysis of environmental and food contaminants, which include:

  • Less time-consuming and labor-intensive sample preparation
  • Direct injection of water samples
  • Typically no need for derivatization
  • Short chromatographic run times
  • Quantitation of trace levels (parts per trillion) due to superior selectivity and sensitivity of multiple reaction monitoring (MRM)
  • Screening for a wider range of compounds in a single analysis
  • Compound identification using MRM ratio calculation and library searching of enhanced product ion spectra
