The global agriculture industry uses over a thousand different pesticides in the production of food. Producers require pesticides to meet the increasing demand for reasonably priced food. This growing demand has increased the use of pesticides and encouraged problematic agricultural practices that have elevated risks in the food supply and the environment. Concerns about trace level chemical pollutants in food are driving the demand for more rapid and reliable methods for the identification and quantitation of chemical residues. The Agilent 8890/7000E and 8890/7010C triple quadrupole GC/MS systems (GC/TQ) are ideally suited to meet this need.

This 17-minute video application describes best practices to enhance analytical performance for the analysis of pesticides in challenging matrices. Dr Anastasia Andrianova describes the analysis of over 200 pesticides in challenging matrices, and how the Agilent 8890/7000E and 8890/7010C triple quadrupole GC/MS systems (GC/TQ) are ideally suited to meet this need.

From this presentation, you will learn:

  • Five best practices to enhance analytical performance in the analysis of over 200 pesticides in challenging matrices including spinach, walnut, and cayenne pepper.
  • How the novel Agilent Captiva EMR passthrough cleanup procedure following the Agilent QuEChERS extraction enabled a cleaner matrix background.
  • How the Agilent 8890/7000E triple quadrupole GC/MS system achieved excellent linearity.
  • How the Agilent 8890/7010C triple quadrupole GC/MS system demonstrated superior sensitivity yielding a higher signal-to-noise ratio at lower concentrations.
