Project objectives:
The project aimed to construct an automatic monitoring system for the determination of medium to polar pesticides and their conversion products in the concentration 
range from 0.1 to 10ug/l
Project Summary:
The automated instrument was designed to incorporate sampling, clean-up and preconcentration and separation and detection of a range of pesticdes and metabolites 
using a combination of state-of-the-art technologies (SPE, LCDAD, GCMS). The instrument was designed to be fully automated and capable of operation without
