Thermo Fisher Scientific
The introduction of high resolution, accurate mass (HRAM) Thermo Scientific™ Orbitrap™ Technology coupled to Gas Chromatography (GC) brings a new level of performance and flexibility in GC-MS full scan acquisition and more, and perfectly complements recent developments in new MS/MS acquisition modes using LC-Orbitrap. Together these technologies provide truly comprehensive workflow solutions for pesticides residues analysis with the capability of performing simultaneously quantitative target residues whilst screening for pesticides not expected to be present in the samples; all in a single analysis.
This webinar will provide pesticides residue analysts with new information from an independent thorough evaluation of the capabilities for and potential application of GC–Orbitrap technology to the analysis of pesticide residues in QuEChERS extracts of food. Hans Mol will share his experience with the development of a GC-Orbitrap workflow solution including optimization of the instrumental parameters and method validation, for qualitative and quantitative multi-residue analysis. Information on precision accuracy and reproducibility, identification capabilities and the ease of use and effectiveness of the software will also be presented.
Dr. Hans Mol Senior Scientist RIKILT-Wageningen UR
Dr. Hans Mol is senior scientist at RIKILT-Wageningen UR (Wageningen, the Netherlands) with 20 years of experience in food safety analysis. He is responsible for analytical method development, validation, and quality control, as well as analytical services in the field of residues and contaminants. His main emphasis is on pesticides, mycotoxins, and plant toxins in food, feed, and related matrices. His key techniques are chromatography with various types of mass spectrometric detection, and rapid MS-based screening methods. He heads the National Reference Laboratory for Mycotoxins and the National Reference Laboratory for Pesticides in products of animal origin. He is active in many national and international research projects, amongst others in the framework of EU (FP7), EFSA, and CEN projects as work package leader, coordinator, and project leader. He is an active member in EU working groups on analytical quality control in the fields of pesticides and mycotoxins and is involved in technical training and consultancy within these domains.
