An alternative approach using GC-Orbitrap MS for the analysis of pesticide residues in food
23 Sep 2022

In a high-throughput environment, robust analytical workflows are key requirements for the accurate and reliable determination of trace-level pesticide residues in food samples. These methods must overcome the challenges of an ever-growing list of compounds and the diversity of sample matrices, in addition to demanding sensitivity and identification requirements. Typically, gas chromatography coupled to low-resolution, nominal mass triple quadrupole mass spectrometers (GC-MS/MS) has been the technology of choice for the sensitive and selective detection of a wide range of target compounds. High-resolution accurate mass (HRAM) using GC Orbitrap™ MS provides distinct advantages to overcome these challenges and offers a more efficient and flexible approach.

In this webinar, Professor Pascal Cardinael, University of Rouen Normandy, and Dominic Roberts, Thermo Fisher Scientific, share results that look at the merits of both GC-MS/MS and HRAM for the analysis of pesticide residues in food samples.
