Multiresidue pesticides analysis in food with an LPGC Rtx-5ms Column Kit

13 Jun 2024

Multiresidue pesticides analysis is a cornerstone of food safety testing, and labs often require faster GC-MS and GC-MS/MS methods. Low-pressure GC-MS (LPGC-MS) is option that can provide significant speed gains, but, historically, the challenging setup has been a barrier to implementation. Restek highlights how it carried out an LPGC-MS pesticides analysis of 209 compounds in strawberries that utilized its LPGC Rtx-5ms Column Kit. The LPGC Rtx-5ms Column Kit has been specifically designed so it can easily be installed into GC-MS or GC-MS/MS systems. Restek details how the kit can provide 3.1x faster multiresidue pesticides analysis in foods with 54% less helium consumption, and how its integrated transfer line helps to reduce background and stabilization time.
