Pesticide residue screening performed by food producers, raw ingredient suppliers, and screening laboratories is often done in a high-volume setting requiring fast turnaround times, reproducibility, and accuracy.

DisQuE, QuEChERS sample preparation products for multi-residue pesticide analysis MicrosepDispersive sample prep simplified

Dispersive sample preparation (d-SPE), commonly referred to as “QuEChERS” (Quick, Easy, Cheap, Effective, Rugged and Safe) is a simple and straightforward sample preparation technique ideal for multi-residue pesticide analysis in a wide variety of food and agricultural products.   The Waters DisQuE™ Dispersive Sample Preparation Kit simplifies the process of performing trace-level analysis by giving scientists an all-in-one sample preparation method for reproducible screening of pesticides in a variety of food commodities including fruits and vegetables.

Convenient & compliant

Waters DisQuE d-SPE products include conveniently packaged centrifuge tubes and foil pouches containing pre-weighed extraction buffer salts for use with the Association of Official Analytical Chemists (AOAC) or European Committee for Standardization (CEN) QuEChERS sample preparation methods. The extracts can be cleaned up with a flexible selection of dispersive SPE (d-SPE) targeting specific sample matrix.

Quick & easy

With well over 1,000 pesticides in use worldwide, multi-residue analysis is particularly challenging for many laboratories due to the sensitivity required, the variety of pesticides being screened, and the very different chemical classes they represent. Misuse of pesticides and poor agricultural practices can pose risks to human health when trace-levels remain on food products harvested for consumption.  Waters QuEChERS kits for dispersive solid-phase extraction (d-SPE) analysis make sample prep quick and easy for your multi-residue food and agricultural analysis.
