Quick-DB GC/MS Residual Pesticides Database for GC/MS and GC-MS/MS analysis

GC/MS Residual Pesticides Database for GC/MS and GC-MS/MS analysis


Quickly screen for residual pesticides in foods.

Twin Line MS System for Analysis of High Matrix Samples

Quantitative Analysis without Standard Samples


Quantitative Analysis Using Pesticide Surrogates as Internal Standard Substance

This database is preregistered with calibration curve data* created with pesticide surrogates, as well as Scan/SIM and Scan/MRM analysis methods developed for simultaneous multicomponent analyses. Accurate peak identification and semi-quantitative analysis are achieved using the AART (Automatic Adjustment of Retention Times) function, even without analytical standards.

In addition, foods can be quickly screened for residual pesticides without allotting time to generate calibration curves, compound data settings, or the selection of columns and liners.

Analysis of Residual Pesticides Using the Twin Line MS System

Even when a highly selective analysis method is used, such as SIM or MRM, accurate detection and quantication of targets can be a problem due to co-extractants, contaminants, and background from sample matrix.
Improve detection and quantitative accuracy by using the Twin Line MS system, which is equipped with two columns with complementary and dissimilar phases. Conduct analysis on either column without venting the MS to change columns.
Peak detection may be difficult with column 1 due to the presence of co-eluting contaminants. Measuring the sample with column 2, which has a different separation pattern, enables separation of the contaminants and detection of the targets.
