While the hyphenation of chromatographic and mass spectrometry technologies has revolutionized food contaminant testing laboratories, one major drawback is the potential for the phenomenon of matrix effects. Due to unwanted interactions between the analytes and… Read more >
When developing a method for the routine multiresidue analysis of pesticides in food commodities there are several factors that need to be considered when selecting which liquid chromatography (LC) column to use. The requirements include:… Read more >
In the various pieces of collateral we have published at Waters on highly polar pesticides, such as glyphosate or chlormequat, one of the main parameters we discuss is retention. But what do we mean by… Read more >
Plastics – Friend and Foe If you’re like me, you’ve probably seen images of all the floating plastic in the Great Pacific garbage patch or perhaps you’ve seen the images of wildlife rescuers trying to… Read more >
Opening this week in Singapore is a new resource for scientists in the challenging position of needing analytical insights as part of their food and water research, but who lack access to state-of-the-art instrumentation … we’re so excited we wanted to share a preview!
We discuss analytical options using LC and GC with MS/MS to detect the pesticide fipronil in eggs for food safety testing.
Q&A time: What is acrylamide? How dangerous is it? How do food testing laboratories detect it?
Determining whether the cyanobacteria present in a water body are producing toxins requires laboratory testing. However, detection of microcystins is a challenging problem for water testing laboratories.
Waters Corporation and PRIMORIS Belgium… a reliable relationship It makes sense, doesn’t it? No one likes being let down; disappointed. Especially when the consequences are significant. Take, for example, a specialized food testing laboratory –… Read more >
Waters partnered with Scottish Waters to develop and validate an analytical method for the analysis of synthetic estrogens – which can appear in fish – in surface water, crude influent, and final effluent from a waste water treatment plant using 2D LC-MS/MS.
