MS Data Processing With Full Flexibility Of Universal Processing Software
Thermo Fisher Scientific

Liquid Chromatography (LC) in combination with triple quadrupole Mass Spectrometry (MS) is more and more a common analysis technique in routine laboratories. Especially when using MS/MS selected reaction monitoring (SRM) for a large number of components data handling can be a bottle neck. This poster will show MS data processing of pesticides in water samples using an already established chromatography data system which is now also capable of processing large quantities of MS data.
Analysis of Dithiocarbamate Pesticides by GC-MS

GC-MS/MS Analysis of Pesticide Residue in Green Tea Extracted by QuEChERS with Acetonitrile as Final Solvent
Thermo Fisher Scientific

QuEChERS involves an initial step when a few grams of the sample are extracted with acetonitrile followed by a clean-up step (with dispersive-SPE) used to remove, to a certain extent, unwanted matrix compound (such as pigments, sugars, organic acids). With QuEChERS, the final extract ends up with the pesticides in acetonitrile, which, being polar solvent, can be
problematic in GC-MS.
