High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC):
Combining precisions injectors, accurate pumps and a highly sensitive detector, the high performance liquid chromatograph or HPLC is capable of analysing a wide range of pesticide actives.
Using their chemical knowledge of each active and an extensive variety of analytical columns, the team is able to the separate the compound of interest from any potential interferent.
With diode array detection (DAD) it is possible to generate a unique ultra-violet spectrum of the analyte which can be used for identification purposes. This technique is especially useful to analyze temperature sensitive compounds.
