North American Chemical Residue Workshop

July 26 - 30, 2021


Join Bruker at The North American Chemical Residue Workshop (NACRW) annual meeting for scientists interested in trace level analysis of pesticides, veterinary drug residues, and other chemicals in food, animal feed, and environmental samples. The purpose of the meeting is to provide training, develop and improve technical knowledge, facilitate development and distribution of new analysis methods and techniques, and establish networking to promote professional cooperation between scientists of these interests.

Friday, July 30, 12:30 – 1:00 pm EDT
Higher Sensitivity, Higher Specificity, and Higher Throughput – New Mass Spectrometric Solutions for Chemical Residue Analysis

With ever increasing demands for lower detection limits and growing variety of chemical residues that need to be tested for developing a fast, sensitive and accurate screening method is a complex and critical analytical task. To meet these challenging demands, Bruker Scientific has developed several new MS technologies and analytical workflows that will be discussed at this seminar. In particular, a new VIP-HESI ionization source brings the sensitivity of Bruker high-resolution accurate mass QTOF instruments to the levels previously achievable only with nominal mass triple quadrupole systems. An improved Trapped Ion Mobility Spectrometry separation stage in the new timsTOF Pro 2 instrument provides an additional boost to sensitivity in complex matrixes by utilizing collisional cross section filtering to increase the signal to noise ratio. The tandem of high-resolution ion mobility and high-resolution mass spectrometry implemented in the timsTOF platform makes it possible to separate the most challenging coeluting isomers, while speeding up the analysis and increasing the throughput by shortening the chromatographic gradient. These and other new developments will be presented at the seminar and supported by examples from real-life applications.
