Analysis of 213 Pesticide Residues in Grapes by LC–MS/MS with Time-Managed MRM
September 01, 2018
In this study, a fast, sensitive, and selective multiresidue method has been developed by coupling QuEChERS sample preparation with LC–MS/MS. Using time-managed-MRM™ in the QSight® triple quadrupole mass spectrometer, the optimum dwell time can be generated automatically for MRM transitions based on the number of coeluting transitions, expected cycle time, retention time, and tolerance time window of the targeted analytes. Such method automation results in improved data quality and better sensitivity, accuracy, and reproducibility, as demonstrated in this study by the results of 213 pesticide residues analyzed in grape samples.
