Overview

As part of our complete pesticide solution, the QSight Pesticide Analyzer delivers all the functionality you need in a triple quad solution, plus an array of innovations you won’t find in competitive systems – all in a compact form factor that doesn’t take up valuable bench space.

Innovative technologies:

  • The StayClean technology uses hot-surface-induced desolvation (HSID), a sampling interface that never needs cleaning, resulting in 15% more uptime than conventional systems.
  • Patented Laminar Flow Ion Guide eliminates instrument drift in signal and frequent re-optimization by operating at zero potential and transporting ions by flow, ensuring the highest level of performance.
  • The QSight systems dual-source configuration can be set in ESI or APCI modes, enabling combinations such as ESI/ESI, ESI/APCI, and APCI/APCI – with the same or opposite polarities.
  • With its high-energy dynode to attract positive ions, the UniField Detector causes positive ions to collide with a high-energy dynode to form electrons that cascade into the detector, while negative ions are detected as usual for pulse counting.

From initial sample preparation and extraction to analysis and reporting, the QSight Pesticide Analyzer can deliver all the functionality you need for the most efficient high-sensitivity analyses.

A Multiclass Multiresidue Method for Analysis of Veterinary Drugs in Chicken by UHPLC/MS/MS

Veterinary drugs are used in animal production to treat diseases, prevent infection and protect growth of animals, which helps provide quality marketplace. However the uncontrolled use may cause heavy human disease so regulatory agencies around the world have established maximum residue levels (MRLs) or tolerances of veterinary drugs in foods. Drug analysis is generally challenging, due to the complexity of sample matrices and diversity of analytes from various classes of chemical properties. In this study, a fast, sensitive and selective method has been developed for analysis of 73 veterinary drugs (covering 13 different chemical classes) in chicken samples by coupling solvent extraction method with LC/MS/MS.

A Single Cannabis Method to Meet California Pesticide and Mycotoxin Residues Regulatory Requirements

Testing for the levels of pesticide and mycotoxins in cannabis is important to ensure consumer safety and quality control. In this work, the PerkinElmer application development team analyzed all 66 pesticides (including very hydrophobic and chlorinated pesticides typically analyzed by GC-MS/MS) and five mycotoxins spiked in cannabis flower extracts well below the action limits specified by the state of California. A LC-MS/MS instrument was used with ESI and APCI sources and a simple solvent extraction method with excellent recoveries for all analytes in acceptable range of 70-120%.

Analysis of Acrylamide in Potato Chips by Isotopically Standard Addition UHPLC-MS/MS

Acrylamide is a probable carcinogen organic compound that is found in some foods that are cooked at elevated temperatures. It’s origins are due to the condensation of the amino acid asparagine and glucose as part of Maillard reaction. In 2002, Acrylamide was found to be present in french fries and baked bread. This compound has now also been found in some other food stuff like coffee, black olives, dried pears, and peanuts. As a result the and World Health Organizations have promptly limited its presence for human consumption.

Analysis of Aflatoxins by UHPLC

Aflatoxin B1 is considered to be the most genotoxic of the mycotoxins, and, when ingested by cows, is converted to aflatoxin M1 which has been shown to cause liver cancer in certain animals.

Analysis of Multi-Residue Pesticides in Rice by LC/MS/MS

Liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) has become the method of choice for pesticide analysis due to its high selectivity and sensitivity as well as its suitability for a wide range of compounds in various sample matrices. 0 In this study, a fast, sensitive and selective multi- residue method has been developed for analysis of over 200 pesticides in rice samples by coupling a modified QuEChERS extraction method with LC/MS/MS. Using time-managed- MRM in the QSight® triple quadrupole mass spectrometer, the optimum dwell time of multiple MRM transitions can be generated automatically for the targeted analytes. This not only saves time in method development but also improves data quality and analytical performance, as demonstrated in this study by the results of multi- residue pesticide analysis in rice samples.

Analysis of Mycotoxins in Multi-Grain and Corn Cereals

Mycotoxins produced by fungi as toxic secondary metabolites, leave grains, maize and cereals particularly vulnerable. With this in mind, and considering that an estimated 25% of all crops show some signs of mycotoxin contamination, many countries have established regulatory guidelines for maximum mycotoxin limits in not only feed and grain, but also in processed food products.

Analysis of Pesticide Residues in Cannabis Regulated by Oregon State Using LC/MS/MS

Liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) has become the method of choice for pesticide. The state of Oregon has issued regulatory limits for 59 pesticide residues in both cannabis flower and concentrates, while other states have come up with their own lists of pesticide residues relating to medical marijuana and cannabis testing.

Analysis of illegal dyes in Chili Spices via UHPLC-MS/MS

Since 2003 the usage of azo and non-azo dyes for food coloring has been declared as illegal by many of the food international authorities across the globe. That is because these substances such as Sudan I,II,III,IV and Rhodamine B, are potentially carcinogens and genotoxin in nature. As of now, no official methods have been published for the detection of illegal dyes however, the most used analytical technology is GC-MS or HPLC coupled with UV or MS detection.

Detection of Fipronil and Metabolites in Eggs by LC-MS/MS

Fipronil is a broad-spectrum phenylpyrazole insecticide almost used to protect corps from insects but also to treat lice and ticks in chickens. The U.S. EPA classified fipronil as Group C, possible human carcinogen, therefore International organizations defined admissible limits for the fipronil usage which in egg is of 5 µg/L4. LC-MS/MS technology can provide a robust and reliable method to detect such a contaminant in food.

Determination of Plant Growth Regulators in Bean Sprouts

Bean sprouts are commonly used ingredient in Asian cuisine and highly valued for their nutritional properties. In recent years, there have been concerns about the presence of exogenous plant growth regulators in bean sprouts, which can accelerate their growth. Though this accelerated growth is great for production, the addition of growth regulators is known to be harmful to the health of consumers.

Determination of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons in Seafood by UHPLC- MS/MS

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) can contaminate foods during smoking, heating, and drying processes that allow combustion products to come into direct contact with food. They can also enter food supply chains through contaminated air and water, and accumulate in various food chains. Regulations are in place to monitor PAHs levels in foods; the EU set a stringent maximum residue limit (MRL) for BaP in muscle meat of smoked fish and smoked fishery products at 2 µg/kg.2 In this study, seafood samples were prepared using a QueChERS extraction method followed by a dispersive solid-phase extraction clean-up step. The samples were subsequently analyzed by coupling a UHPLC system with a triple quadrupole mass spectrometer.

Direct Analysis of Glyphosate in Wine with No Sample Preparation

Glyphosate is an organophosphate herbicide that is used on crops to kill weeds and grasses. We present a study that involves direct analysis of glyphosate in wine on a mixed mode column with no sample dilution or extraction using a PerkinElmer QSight® 220 triple quadruple mass spectrometer with a patented StayClean source, consisting of a hot surface induced desolvation (HSID) interface and a Laminar Flow Ion Guide. Both the HSID and ion guide prevent any contaminants from entering the mass spectrometer, keeping it at its highest performance level and, thereby, maintenance free.

Pesticide in Grapes by LC-MS/MS

The Grape crop is one of the most important fruit crops consumed in the world. Grapes are consumed both as fresh and as processed products, such as wine, jam, juice, jelly, grape seed extract, raisins, vinegar and grape seed oil. A large variety of pesticides are used in grape production throughout its growing season to control pests and diseases in vineyards and to increase crop yield. Pesticide residue is a major concern for the stakeholders of the grape industry, due to more and more stringent regulations and safety standards in most countries.
