The combination of excellent linearity over greater than 4 orders of magnitude of dynamic range and sub ppb detection limits in matrix (LOD was ≤ 0.1 ppb for 74% of the pesticides ) demonstrate that the Pegasus BT is a powerful tool for quantitative pesticide residue analysis Ref. 203-821-524

In this application note we used the speed and power of TOFMS to shorten the runtime of a standard pesticide residue analysis by using a 15 m column instead of a standard 30 m column without loss of analytical performance. The Pegasus BT delivers a superior combination of quantitative and qualitative information in the same sample injection with a run time of less than 9 minutes Ref. 203-821-524
