Large Scale Screening of Pesticide Residues in Fruits and Vegetables Using Advances in High Resolution QTOF LC-MS/MS
With the development of more affordable high resolution, accurate mass MS coupled to liquid chromatography brings a new level of performance and flexibility in full scan and MS/MS acquisition modes. The advances in QTOF LC-MS/MS technology can provide truly comprehensive workflow solutions for pesticides residues analysis because of the capability of performing simultaneously quantitative target residues whilst screening for pesticides not expected to be present in the samples; all in a single analysis, bringing routine testing closer than ever.
In this webinar, you will hear from Prof. Amadeo R. Fernández-Alba from the EURL for Pesticide Analysis in Fruit & Vegetables will present his current research on the use of high resolution MS for the large scale screening of food for pesticide contaminants. The presentation will highlight the importance of accurate mass MS and MS/MS data acquisition to identify the known and unknown contaminants with high confidence. The presentation will also highlight the importance of simplified data processing workflows to aid with interpretation of complex sample sets, and how the data can be validated against international regulatory guidelines.
