LC-MS Solutions Reduce Sample Preparation Time While Maintaining Sensitivity and Selectivity.

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has announced the availability of a new technical library of LC-MS solutions for water analysis, including application information on the detection of pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) and pesticides.

The technical library, available at, is a comprehensive and regularly updated searchable resource containing application notes, webinars, technical posters, articles, case studies, videos and web resources for numerous applications, including the analysis of pesticides, PPCPs, herbicides, endocrine disruptors and perfluorinated compounds.

“We designed the LC-MS technical library to give our customers ready access to water and beverage analysis resources that can help them improve and simplify their laboratory operations,” said Dipankar Ghosh, Ph.D., strategic marketing manager for environmental and food safety solutions at Thermo Fisher Scientific. “Our innovative LC-MS systems support a wide variety of applications for water and beverage sampling, from targeted and non-targeted screening to quantitative and qualitative analyses. We are committed to making our customers’ analyses as easy as possible with solutions that address both existing and future environmental concerns.”

The Thermo Scientific EQuan MAX LC-MS solution is ideal for quick and easy detection of pesticides and PPCPs in surface and drinking water, reducing the time required for sample preparation while delivering the sensitivity and selectivity needed to identify analytes of interest. The EQuan MAX system is an automated, high-throughput LC-MS solution that offers improved productivity and simplified assay development. With its unique online sample enrichment technique, scientists can significantly reduce analysis time - from days to minutes. And its high injection volume (1-20mL) enables higher detection limits than conventional LC-MS/MS analysis.

The online technical library, designed as a knowledge transfer tool, provides customers with access to Thermo Fisher’s vast application expertise and a variety of technical applications for water analysis. The digital resource is available free at
