Market Profile: GC-MS
Gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC-MS) combines a gas chromatographic front-end separation with a mass spectrometer. For the most part, the gas chromatographs and mass spectrometers used are modular in design and can be separated relatively easily. GC-MS is the most widespread tandem technique in the analytical instrumentation industry and is employed in many different industries, particularly for environmental, chemical, and toxicological applications.Read more

Multi-Residue Pesticide Analysis in Herbal Products Using Accelerated Solvent Extraction with Triple Quadrupole
Wednesday, June 25, 2013
8:00 am PDT/ 11:00 am EDT/ 16:00 BST/ 17:00 CEDT.
As the human population grows and farm acreage shrinks, the use of pesticides has increased, in order to produce food efficiently. Regulatory organizations are therefore requiring manufacturers to present test data on pesticide levels in food to address public safety concerns. Sensitive and robust routine screening methods to analyze hundreds of potential contaminants are therefore necessary.
