The Anionic Pesticides Explorer provides a fully integrated analytical workflow for the complete analysis of 14 anionic pesticides and their metabolites, increasing productivity and reducing costs. Extraction is performed using a modified version of the Quick Polar Pesticides Method (QuPPe) with a combination of freezing, dilution and solid phase extraction clean-up to reduce matrix co-extractives before IC-MS/analysis. High performance ion chromatography with post-column eluent suppression, coupled to a high-sensitivity triple quadrupole mass spectrometer (IC-MS/MS), all controlled by the Thermo Scientific™ Chromeleon™ Chromatography Data System, providing robust and sensitive quantitation and identification of all targeted anionic polar pesticides.
The Anionic Pesticides Explorer has been extensively optimized and validated with a range of representative sample types including wheat flour, grape, leek and baby food. It includes all instruments, software, necessary consumables, suitability check standard solution, and a detailed deployment guide for reaching higher productivity and maintaining the workflow performance during routine analysis.
For routine laboratories, the Anionic Pesticide Explorer offers:
