Waters and Restek Corporation have entered into a co-marketing agreement in a bid to give food safety laboratories access to the gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) instrumentation and consumables they need to perform pesticide residue GC-MS analyses and support a safe, secure, sustainable and nutritious global food supply.

“We are delighted to enter into this agreement with Restek. Like us, they are committed to making customers successful with GC consumables and technical support to monitor for pesticides and other contaminants and meet the sensitivity requirements of global regulated methods,” said Jeff Mazzeo, vice-president, marketing, Waters Corporation.

“Restek is excited to work with Waters on this new venture because we both place great value in bringing exceptional service and quality to our respective customers. By collaborating, we can combine our unique expertise to help analysts around the world perform the vital job of ensuring the safety of a food supply we all share,” said Rick Lake, vice-president, marketing, Restek Corporation.

Under the terms of the agreement, Waters and Restek will work together to provide food safety laboratories with training and applications support of GC-MS methods and workflows for pesticide monitoring and screening.

The Waters Xevo TQ-GC Mass Spectrometer is a tandem quadrupole mass spectrometer with an electron impact (EI) ionisation source. When paired with highly-inert Rxi columns and Topaz liners from Restek, the Xevo TQ-GC Mass Spectrometer allows laboratories to meet and exceed low part-per-billion limits of detection when quantifying pesticide residues and other contaminants in food using GC-MS/MS methods set forth by worldwide regulatory agencies.

Now, Waters is exhibiting the Xevo TQ-GC System at international scientific conferences, such as the 132nd AOAC International Annual Meeting and Exposition and the 22nd International Mass Spectrometry Conference (IMSC).

In addition, the company recently published a poster featuring a multi-residue analytical method, titled The Determination of Pesticide Residues in Quechers Extracts of Fruit Commodities by GC-MS/MS.

Restek directly serves analysts across over 100 countries and six continents, bringing them the GC and liquid chromatography (LC) columns, sample preparation products, reference standards and accessories they rely on to monitor the quality and safety of air, water, soil, foods, among others.
