Liquid Chromatography - Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS) in Food Testing

In recent years, to protect the health of consumers, more meticulous monitoring of food, more rigorous regulations with lower limits of quantification (LOQs) are required.

The use of liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MSMS) is widely recognized as the extremely sensitive and highly specific technique of choice for the determination of food contaminants at trace levels including pesticides, veterinary drugs, natural toxins, and so-called “emerging contaminants”.

Our robust and reliable QSight® triple quad systems consistently deliver the throughput and productivity you need in your analytical testing lab. Our LC/MSMS solutions deliver the highest sensitivity and throughput the industry has ever seen and the capability to test for the most challenging, complex samples, including cannabis.
