Commodity Food, feed or animal commodity that the pesticide or metabolite was tested on.
Detection Limit Smallest amount of chemical that can be detected.
Detection Limit (LOQ) Limit of quantization (LOQ) is the smallest amount of chemical that can be reliably quantitated. The reported limit is provided by the company (registrant) who submitted the pesticide for registration or reregistration.
EPA Validated? Was the method tested at a EPA laboratory? Answer: Yes or No
Instrument See "Analysis" above.
Matrix Type of sample the method is designed to test., i.e. soil water and sediment or:
EUP - End Use Product
MUP - Manufacturing Use Product
PAI - Pure Active Ingredient
T - Technical Grade of Active Ingredient
Method Date Date the registrant or company completed the method.(Not available if N/A)
Method ID Identifier that the company gave the analytical method.
Method Source Company that authored the analytical method.
Pesticide Name or
Pesticide or Metabolite (M) Common Name
The official common name of the active ingredient and/or metabolite.
Registrant Name The specific business entity responsible for the active ingredient registration.
