Pesticide Analyses Applications

  • Reduced Fat Interference with Analysis of Pesticides in Avocados

    QuEChERS (Quick, Easy, Cheap, Effective, Rugged, Safe) is a very popular method for the extraction and cleanup of fruit and vegetable samples for pesticide residue analysis.2-4 The extraction step uses acetonitrile and a salting out effect (with MgSO4). Cleanup is then accomplished using dispersive SPE (dSPE) followed by a centrifuge step prior to analysis. This application shows the clean-up and analysis using Supel™ QuE Z-Sep+ QuEChERS and an SLB®-5ms GC column.

  • Increased Pigment Removal with Analysis of Pesticides in Oranges

    An application was developed to demonstrate increased pigment removal for the analysis of pesticides, using Supel™ QuE Z-Sep/C18 QuEChERS and an Ascentis® Express C18 HPLC Column. The improved cleanup can decrease column and instrument fouling, leading to extended LC column lifetime and reduced instrument downtime.

  • Pesticide and toxin screening for the food industry

    The number of pesticides and other potentially dangerous toxins is increasing constantly, posing special analytical challenges. It is crucial to screen food for the presence of toxins accurately and reliably, and to ensure the safety and quality of nutrition. To do so, we have to have the knowledge about how to deal with several hundreds of different poisonous matters. Bruker delivers solutions that meet the requirements for the identification and quantification of toxicants during the screening of each sample. Bruker’s high-performance TOF-MS is ideally suited for all screening tasks. And Bruker’s SCION series sets a new industry standard for GC-MS. Their easy usability, sensitivisty, robustness and performance make SCION solutions a major technology in food safety.

  • Analysis of Pesticides in Beef Kidney

    The suitability of the new cleanup sorbent, Supel QuE Z-Sep+, has been successfully demonstrated for cleanup of beef kidney matrix. It was found to effectively reduce background without significantly reducing recovery of lipophilic pesticides such as organochlorines and some pyrethroids. GC-MS full-scan data indicated Z-Sep+ was found to provide better cleanup in the form of reduced background than PSA/C18, and less interference in the GC-MS/SIM analysis of the target pesticides themselves.

  • Organic Micro-Pollutants Removal

    Organic Micro-pollutants are low and trace levels of synthetic organic substances released in water through human activity. They can be found in industrial, agricultural and domestic wastewater streams. Some of the most difficult-to-treat wastewater contains micro-pollutants such as persistent organic pollutants (POPs), herbicides and pesticides, personal care products (PCPs), toxic chemicals, carcinogenic and endocrine disruptive compounds (EDCs), and emerging contaminants.
