Supercharge your analysis of pesticides in food: two techniques for getting great results in less time

There are a lot of steps required in order to analyze pesticides in food. Between prepping the samples and doing both gas and liquid chromatography analyses, the workflows are long. In this series of two workshops, we’ve brought together our latest developments for these critical analyses.

In our first module, we’ll share information on how to speed up the analyses with low-pressure gas chromatography (LPGC). We’ll begin with comparing LPGC to other common ways to speed up GC-MS analysis and showing how easy it is to install and maintain. We will also show examples of how much faster LPGC is for pesticide analysis.

In the second module, we’ll explain how in-line sample preparation (ILSP) uses the power of an LC-MS/MS to streamline and automate sample extract cleanup. In this presentation, learn the science behind ILSP and how to automate your current multiresidue pesticide workflow in an interactive format that will give you the knowledge you need to transform your instrument into an analytical workhorse.

Join us for this pair of interactive workshops to learn how to supercharge your pesticide analysis.
