Turkey - GC-MS/MS method implementation

In June 2009 KAIN coordinated the installation of GC-MS/MS equipment at the same laboratory in Turkey where UPLC-MS/MS equipment had previously been installed. In the course of a two week visit in the same month, the progress of both projects was monitored and a dedicated method developed.

Later the method was successfully applied in a large-scale project to monitor pesticides in cherries. We also assisted the laboratory in their efforts to obtain accreditation from the Turkish accreditation body ‘Turkac’ in Ankara. Fortunately there was still enough time to visit the mausoleum of Ataturk.
