A new workflow from Thermo Fisher Scientific provides a validated analytical method combining HPLC and triple quadrupole MS for the reliable and sensitive quantitation of pesticides in complex sample matrices. This is designed to help food testing laboratories more efficiently comply with global regulatory requirements. The Thermo Scientific Pesticide Explorer workflow brings together the sample preparation, hardware and software capabilities required by food testing laboratories for the targeted analysis of multi-class pesticides. It can be easily configured to meet the needs of individual laboratories.
The workflow consists of the Thermo Scientific Vanquish Flex Binary UHPLC system with the Thermo Scientific TSQ Quantis triple quadrupole mass spectrometer, verified consumables, and analytical software, including Thermo Scientific TraceFinder and Thermo Scientific Chromeleon chromatography data system software.
