Analysis of pesticide residues in plant-based food and feed products

The laboratory training takes place in our AGES National Reference Laboratory (NRL) for pesticide residues at the Institute for Food Safety Innsbruck. The training focuses on the analysis of pesticide residues from sample receipt to comprehensive and practical reporting. 

In addition to theoretical knowledge and analytical expertise, the laboratory training also describes in detail the legal principles and quality-relevant parameters in an accredited laboratory. Using pesticide multi-methods (LC-MS/MS, GC-MS/MS), the training focuses on the analysis of different matrices from simple plant foods and feeds to more complex foods (meat, eggs, oil, tea, herbs). In addition, analytical quality control and method validation procedures for pesticide residue analysis according to SANTE/11312/2021 are presented. Practical tips and troubleshooting experiences round out the course content.
