Agilent Technologies has released the GC/MS/MS Pesticide Residue Analysis Guide, which contains complete instructions for modifying and re-optimizing analytical methodology and standard operating procedures for analyzing pesticide residue in food.

The guide features a complete spectrum of resources for GC/MS/MS analysis, a companion sample preparation procedure, and instructions for expanding analytical methods using the Agilent Pesticide and Environmental Pollutant MRM Database. It was written by Katerina Mastovska, head of the scientific consultancy Excellcon International, in collaboration with scientists from the California Department of Food and Agriculture, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, and Agilent.

'Food, water and environmental safety regulations have never been more stringent, which means the onus lies squarely on laboratories to optimize their screening tools and procedures to ensure the validity and reliability of their results,' said Terry Sheehan, Agilent’s director of GC/MS marketing. 'The good news is that there are highly sophisticated technologies available today to help them accomplish that feat. This valuable guide provides laboratories with a complete resource for identifying which of those technologies best fulfills their needs and how to develop rigorous testing methods to detect pesticides at the lowest levels possible, and obtain results with more confidence and speed than ever before.'

Launched at the recent American Society of Mass Spectrometry conference in Minneapolis, the guide can now be obtained from local Agilent representatives.
