This project describes an efficient and effective analytical method to screen pesticides in fruits and vegetable samples using liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). A quick, easy, cheap, effective, rugged, and safe (QuEChERS) method with acetate buffering (AOAC Official Method 2007.01) was used for sample preparation, which has been previously shown to yield high-quality results for hundreds of pesticide residues in foods.
