    Abstract

    The Agilent 7200 GC/Q-TOF, in concert with the Agilent MassHunter Qualitative Analysis All Ions workflow, and the first commercially available exact mass pesticide library, was used to rapidly screen, identify, and generate quantitative information for pesticide residues in five different food matrices. This technique helps eliminate false positives, and has the speed and accuracy to significantly improve the productivity of pesticide screening and quantitative work. A screening workflow using the new GC/Q-TOF Pesticide Library and the unique All Ions software tools enables the detection of pesticide levels as low as 10 ppb in complex matrices.
