Thermo Fisher Scientific Launches Pesticide Analyzer Reference Package
Product News Jul 07, 2009
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has announced the launch of a Pesticide Analyzer Reference package. The new, all-inclusive solution provides information on extraction, consumables and assists users in method development for the analysis of pesticides using the Thermo Scientific TSQ Quantum GC triple quadrupole GC-MS/MS.
The TSQ Quantum GC is the established standard for interference-free, high-throughput, multi-residue screening of a large number of pesticides in a single analytical run.
Pesticide analysis poses a number of challenges for laboratories and operators due to the large number of pesticides, with a wide variety of chemistries. Building on the extensive experience of Thermo Fisher in pesticide analysis, the new Pesticide Analyzer Reference package provides the means to easily meet these challenges.
The package incorporates method information, consumables and procedures to facilitate and accelerate the analytical method development for challenging pesticide compounds. This combination of materials and instrumentation has been specifically developed to allow environmental and food safety testing laboratories become productive with new methods within days of installation.
The Thermo Scientific Pesticide Analyzer Reference package generates proven SRM transitions for almost 600 different pesticide compounds. Pesticides samples are extracted using the QuEChERS technique and can be searched using either CAS number, name or chemical formula. The reference package also offers a 'shopping list' for consumables and sample preparation methods.
