Pesticides & Herbicides compounds used to control weeds, mold, bacteria, insects, and rodents are widely used throughout the world. Due to their widespread use, agricultural chemicals find their way into the food chain, water supply, and soil resulting in potentially dangerous exposure levels to humans. While not fully understood, exposure to pesticides may interfere with neurological development and disrupt a person’s endocrine system. For a complete characterization and sensitive quantification of pesticides in the environment, both an LC-MS and GC-MS system are required. Agilent’s complete workflow solutions for pesticides analysis include sample preparation products, chromatography, mass spectrometry, data reporting and expert application services, provide everything needed to tackle challenges associated with pesticide analysis in the environment.
