Application note: Polar pesticides in food by IC-MS/MS

Multi-residue analysis of anionic pesticides in food samples using a compact ion chromatography system coupled with tandem mass spectrometry (IC-MS/MS)

Develop and validate an integrated sample-to-result analytical workflow based on ion chromatography (IC) coupled with triple quadrupole mass spectrometry (MS/MS) for the multi-residue determination of polar anionic pesticides and perchlorate in representative food matrices. The performance of this Thermo Scientific™ Anionic Pesticides Explorer workflow must be robust in routine analysis and the results compliant with EU SANTE/11813/2017 method validation and ongoing quality control guideline criteria.1 Also, the analysis should meet the residue definitions and maximum residue levels (MRLs) or tolerance values applicable in the European Union, United States, Japan, and China.
