Bruker develops sensitive carbendazim test

US analytical chemistry company Bruker Chemical and Applied Markets (Fremont, California) has developed a sensitive system for detecting residues of the fungicide, carbendazim, in orange juice and wine. The company's Evoq Elite liquid chromatography mass spectrometer can detect residue levels of 0.005 ppb, which is far below the Food and Drug Administration limit of 10 ppb in imported produce, the company points out. The equipment is suitable for use in high-throughput laboratories, it adds. The FDA seized imports of orange juice from Brazil and Canada last year following the detection of carbendazim (Agrow No 633, p 13).
