For years, laboratories analyzing food commodities for glyphosate and associated highly polar anionic pesticides have had to contend with a complex and time consuming workflows.
Waters’ direct analysis application solution, offers retention times you can rely upon, separation power that avoids false detections and sensitivity to exceed current regulatory requirements, on a choice of Waters LC-MS/MS- all supported by our application specialists to ensure your analytical demands are addressed.
Retention to Rely On
The Anionic Polar Pesticide column is the perfect complement to the ACQUITY UPLC I-Class PLUS System, providing unparalleled retention for all target compounds. This application specific column enables reproducible testing methods for highly anionic polar pesticides found in agriculture products and finished foods. AMPA is the first eluting peak with retention 3.5 times greater than the column void volume. Retention time stability is also crucial, and the Anionic Polar Pesticide Column exhibits very stable retention times, even across different commodities.
Separations to Resolve Your Challenges
A number of polar, anionic pesticides share mass transitions or can degrade in solution or via in source fragmentation, generating interferences in MRMs and thus false positives. Waters’ Polar Pesticide column provides unparalleled separation, to resolve such false detections. One example of such critical pairs requiring chromatographic separation is phosphonic acid, from fosetyl aluminum and AMPA, due to similar isobaric transitions interfering, even in MRM mode.
Detection Power that Fits Your Needs
Using Waters’ Anionic Polar Pesticide column on ACQUITY UPLC coupled with Xevo TQ-XS or Xevo TQ-S micro you can detect, quantify and identify residues with confidence. The interpretation of data and full workflow is supported within MassLynx and can be streamlined with support from our expert application chemists.
