Analysis of Environmental Contaminants in Water Using an Agilent 6470 LC/TQ Instrument

The analytical demands for detecting organic contaminants in water at low ng/L level have pushed the development of new methodologies using LC/TQ instrumentation. In this regard, and in the last few years, advances in sensitivity and selectivity have made this challenge possible. This webinar will focus on the use of the new 6470 LC-MS-MS from Agilent Technologies for the sub ng/L level detection of several pharmaceuticals and pesticides in surface waters. Examples of optimization of several source...
