Pesticides and Contaminants Testing
Pesticides residue analysis
SCIEX has reported on "Precise testing of pesticides in food using the SCIEX Triple Quad™ 7500 LC-MS/MS System – QTRAP® Ready" -- an analysis of over 700 compounds covering required testing for numerous regions including Europe, North America and various areas within Asia.
Persistent organic pollutants (POPs)
A recent research study, which involved 323 patients infected with the coronavirus, found that those who had elevated levels of a chemical called PFBA were more than twice as likely to have a severe form of the disease.
Biological toxin testing
Waters offers a portfolio of innovative technologies for the detection and quantification of mycotoxins and marine biotoxins, including analytical systems that integrate standards & reagents, columns & sample preparation, chromatography, mass spectrometry and data management software.
Trace element analysis
Recent research has focused on soil contaminants like arsenic and cadmium, their different chemical forms depending on their environment, and the mechanisms by which they are taken up by plants by resembling the nutrients the plant needs.
