Residual Pesticides in Food (Pre-Treatment System)
Online GPC-GCMS System
Recent years have seen trends toward increased control of pesticides in foods and an increased number of agricultural products being targeted for measurement. This demands automated pretreatment and more rapid analysis of residual pesticides in foods. To further develop rapid analysis methods for residual pesticides, Shimadzu developed an Online GPC-GCMS Prep-Q screening system by making an online connection of a GPC cleanup system to a GC/MS. An example of the Prep-Q analysis of a potato spiked with pesticides is introduced below.
The Prep-Q system connects the GPC cleanup system online to a GC/MS to promote automation. It realizes quicker, labor-saving screening analysis of residual pesticides in food.
