The presence of pesticide residues in agricultural products has always been a major concern for the everyday consumer. Thankfully, regulations put in place by governing bodies have restricted the amount of pesticides allowed on these products. However, due to the ever-evolving nature of pest-control technologies, chemical pesticide targets and their maximum residue limits (MRL) are constantly changing. Frequent changes to the regulatory landscape make pesticide analysis a moving target; difficult for many routine analytical labs to keep pace. To aid with this challenge, this talk discusses a “multiresidue screening” approach, allowing users to screen and quantitate a variety of different pesticide classes within a single method. This method provides users with sufficient margin to confidently detect 200+ trace-level pesticide targets at and beyond regulatory guidelines. Through this, we demonstrate the technological advancements in triple quadrupole LC/MS, allowing users to keep pace with this ever-changing regulatory landscape.
Who should attend:
- Lab managers in service labs providing routine analysis for food and environmental safety;
- LC/MS users doing routine analysis for food and environmental safety; and
- LC/MS users interested in combining class-specific LC/MS methods into a single multi-residue method.
What you will learn:
- Designing, executing, and validating a multiresidue pesticide screening method;
- LC/MS instrument capability required to carry out this kind of analysis; and
- Considerations for increasing instrument uptime.
