The Use of a Q-TOF in a Contract Laboratory for Routine Pesticide Analysis in Food and Feed

Here we present an on-demand webinar from NofaLab, in this presentation the X500R QTOF LC-MS/MS System has been employed in the high throughput analysis of pesticide residues in food and feed.

The common perception of a Q-TOF is that it is used more as a screening instrument rather than a routine instrument for quantitative targeted analysis of pesticides. However, as a scanning instrument the number of analytes in one run is only limited by the extraction and chromatography surrounding the compound of interest. As such, with a Q-TOF instrument it should be possible to reduce the amount of injections to two: one positive run and one negative run. This approach is much more efficient.

In this study using the SWATH® Acquisition Workflow food and feed samples were tested for over 700 pesticides with performance criteria to meet EU regulations.
