Plagued by false or inaccurate results during pesticide analysis? To get to the bottom of the issue, it’s important to find any weaknesses in your pesticide residue workflow. In a recent blog on Analyte Guru, Richard Fussell of Thermo Scientific discusses areas in which pesticide testing labs can identify the weak links, including:

  • Solvent extraction. QuEChERs (Quick, Easy, Cheap, Effective, Rugged and Safe) acetonitrile extraction method
  • Sample processing
  • Extraction efficiency

Get the details about how to find the weakest link in Fussell’s blog here.
