WEBINAR: The Pesticide Explorer Collection: Multi-residue Pesticide Analysis Made Easy for the Routine Laboratory

  • Chemical Analyst, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Dreieich, Germany
      Katerina studied the food chemistry and chemical analysis at Faculty of Food and Biochemical Technology at the Institute of Chemical Technology in Prague and finished her master degree in 2006. From 2006 to 2010 she worked as a chemical analyst at the Department of Chemistry at the State Veterinary Institute in Prague. In 2010 Thermo Fisher Scientific established a new laboratory Food Safety Response Center in Dreieich in Germany, where Katerina started working as an application specialist. She was a member of a small team, which was focused on the rapid development of analytical methods to respond to emerging contaminations in food. In 2013 the name of the group has changed to Special Solutions Center and the field of activity has broadened. Katerina is still responsible for development new analytical methods, but is also giving the presentations about new trends in food safety area, giving trainings for customers and preparing various workshops in the area of food testing.
    • Senior Applications Scientist, Environmental and Food Safety LCMS, Thermo Fisher Scientific

        Ed George has a BS in Chemistry from the University of Notre Dame with concentration in Environmental Science.  He worked for 15 years in the commercial environmental laboratory industry, holding positions of Lab Technician (2 yrs), Lab Manager (10 yrs), and R&D Manager (3 yrs), responsible for developing novel sample preparation and analysis methods for water and solid waste by GC/MS/MS and LC/MS/MS.  He participated in several collaborative method development projects with the USEPA.  From 2005-2009, he worked for Varian, Inc. as Application Lab Manager, developing applications for pesticide residues in food and water for major product launches in ion trap and triple quadrupole MS systems.  

        Ed joined Bruker Daltonics in January 2010 as an application chemist and later became Product Manager for the SCION single quadrupole instrument, responsible for product marketing definition and implementation, acquiring voice-of-customer (VOC) feedback for product feature input, competitive analysis, sales training, global seminars for dealers, inside sales, and margin analysis. Ed is currently a Senior Applications Scientist at Thermo Fisher Scientific, supporting the Life Science Mass Spectrometry group for Environmental and Food Safety analysis.

      Routine pesticide residue food testing laboratories are constantly adding more comprehensive analyses in order to meet customer demands and reduce cost per sample. Testing for a large number of target compounds is required for regulatory monitoring; however the additional demand to expand beyond the normal scope and look for other potential threats is clearly in the best interest of public health.
      The Thermo Fisher Scientific Pesticide Explorer Collection not only offers a complete comprehensive approach to targeted quantitation on traditional triple quadrupole platforms, but also those that include High Resolution Accurate Mass (HRAM). In this webinar, complete, ready-to-go solutions are discussed, along with validated performance data assuring the reliability of the analytical method. It covers the sample preparation for more types of matrices with the full list of needed consumables and chemicals and tips and tricks how to reach the better results.

      For labs wanting to expand their services for a more introspective look into their samples, the Collection offers the HRAM Orbitrap platform and software tools to make it easy for labs to add this new capability.
