Analysis of Dithiocarbamate Pesticides by GC-MS
Product News Nov 11, 2013
Thermo Fisher Scientific has developed a reliable method for determining levels of dithiocarbamate fungicides (DTCs) with high precision using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS).
The complex extraction and identification of DTCs is performed on various food samples after a thorough method validation.
Application Note 10333, Analysis of Dithocarbamate Pesticides by GC-MS, compares DTC levels in various food samples to matrix-matched calibration standards. SIM mode analysis provides high selectivity with easy-to-integrate chromatograms.
The analysis uses a Thermo Scientific™ TRACE GC Ultra™ gas chromatograph equipped with a Thermo Scientific™ TriPlus™ RSH liquid autosampler coupled to a Thermo Scientific™ ITQ™ 900 ion trap mass spectrometer.
