Fast and Robust Analysis of Anionic and Cationic Pesticides on a Single Column
Applications Scientist, Phenomenex
Polar pesticides are a few of the most challenging compounds to be analyzed by analytical methods. Their extensive use in agriculture has raised safety concerns around the world and the routine analysis of these compounds has become a requirement for many food laboratories. A growing list of analytes, complex matrices, proper retention and separation of these compounds, and reproducibility are just a few of the challenges testing labs have to deal with.
