Agilent has introduced the GC/MS/MS Pesticide Residue Analysis Guide, a comprehensive resource for analyzing pesticide residue in food. The guide was developed by Dr. Katerina Mastovska, the head of Excellcon International, LLC, and is the result of collaboration between Agilent and scientists from the California Department of Food and Agriculture, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
The guide was designed to provide laboratories with the best techniques and testing methods to detect pesticides at the lowest levels possible and features a complete spectrum of resources for GC/MS/MS analysis, a companion sample preparation procedure, and instructions for expanding analytical methods using the Agilent Pesticide and Environmental Pollutant MRM Database.
“Food, water and environmental safety regulations have never been more stringent, which means the onus lies squarely on laboratories to optimize their screening tools and procedures to ensure the validity and reliability of their results,” said Terry Sheehan, Agilent’s director of GC/MS marketing. “The good news is that there are highly sophisticated technologies available today to help them accomplish that feat.”
