Triple-Quadrupole LC-MS/MS

For Cannabis Pesticides


Agilent 6400 Series LC-MS/MS

Triple-Quadrupole Liquid Chromatography with tandem Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) the industry standard for pesticides lab testing in cannabis. With superior sensitivity and selectivity it's the tool of choice to detect pesticides below parts-per-million levels in the challenging cannabis matrix. Some state/country pesticide lists can be done with an LC-MS/MS only, while others require a supplementary GC-MS/MS to cover it all.

AIM's recommendation will vary depending on the particular analyte and action-limit requirements given by the regulating body in your state or country. Our inventory includes 6240, 6460, 6470, 6490, and 6495 systems; although other LC-MS MS testing equipment options are also available.
