Pesticide residue testing is necessary to ensure food safety and compliance with regulated maximum residue levels (MRLs) and tolerances. ​With the active ingredients used in pesticides expanding and varying in both volatility and polarity, laboratories face increasing challenges and growing sample numbers, with the need to utilize LC-, GC- and IC-, MS/MS for their quantitative analysis. ​

These demands often result in lengthy and error-prone data management and review processes, but with Thermo Scientific Chromeleon 7.3.2 Chromatography Data System (CDS) you can take advantage of a single software solution. With features and tools designed to simplify data processing and ensure your lab is up and running with lower training and maintenance efforts, you can deliver more reliable results all while in accordance to SANTE guidelines.

Coupled with our broad range of innovative chromatography and mass spectrometry instruments, we have a solution for you. Learn more below or let one of our experts help you tailor a solution specific to your workflow, laboratory, or business needs.​
