Multi-Analyte Analysis of 390 Pesticide Residues, Mycotoxins, and Pyrrolizidine Alkaloids in Phytopharmaceuticals, and Herbal Food Supplements with UHPLC–HRAM–MS/MS

Recorded on: Tuesday, February 04, 2014

Herbal food supplements and phytopharmaceuticals have become an important part of consumers’ health care in recent years and their popularity is constantly growing. But the safety control and analysis of such a difficult and largely variable matrix is a challenging task. Besides heavy metals and pesticide residues, occurrence of “natural” contaminants such as mycotoxins and some toxic plant species has been reported in various commercial products. In this presentation, a multi-analyte method for target analysis of 323 pesticide residues, 56 mycotoxins, and 11 pyrrolizidine alkaloids using QuEChERS extraction method and UHPLC–HRAM- MS/MS will be presented along with:

• An advanced data-dependent MS/MS algorithm used for simultaneous screening, quantitation, and confirmation of all analytes within a single analytical run.
• The method performance characteristics and validation
• Analytical and economical improvements resulting from the use of high resolution and accurate mass spectrometry
