Chlorpropham is currently approved for use predominately on potatoes as sprout suppressant and an herbicide on wide range of crops.

  2. Cypermethrin

    Cypermethrin is a non-systematic pyrethroid insecticide with a wide range of agricultural applications, including the control of ectoparasites.  Cypermethrin is approved for use as an insecticide in the UK for a range of vegetables and plants.

  3. Deltamethrin
    Deltamethrin is a non-systemic pyrethroid insecticide. It is used to control insects in a wide range of crops and to control ectoparasites in cattle, sheep and farmed fish. Deltamethrin is approved for use as an insecticide in the UK for a range of vegetables and plants.
  4. Azamethiphos Pesticide in Fish
    Azamethiphos is an organophosphate insecticide. It is primarily used as an antiparasitic veterinary drug for fish farming within the UK. Azamethiphos is not currently approved for use as a plant protection product in the UK under EC Regulation 1107/2009.
  5. Analysis of food and feed

    GM testing has become an important process in ensuring food safety across the seed, food and animal feed sectors.

    For more information on the services available please contact us - should link to a bespoke email set up for GM testing on MTU together with sample submission form.

  6. Qualitative Screen for Maize or Soya GMOs

    GM testing has become an important process in ensuring food safety across the seed, food and animal feed sectors.

  7. Pesticide Multi-Residue Screen 1 (Cereals, Fruit & Veg & Other)
    Fera is a UK National Reference Laboratory (NRL) for Pesticide Residues. Fera has established a reputation for implementing new technologies, developing and validating new methodologies and extending the scope of existing methods in order to include new pesticide/matrix combinations. This multi-residue suite is for testing for pesticides in cereals, herbs & spices, fruit & vegetables, sugar, nuts, spirits and juice/concentrates.
  8. Pesticide Multi-Residue Screen 2 (Cereals, Fruit & Veg & Others)
    Fera is a UK National Reference Laboratory (NRL) for Pesticide Residues. Fera has established a reputation for implementing new technologies, developing and validating new methodologies and extending the scope of existing methods in order to include new pesticide/matrix combinations. This multi-residue suite is for testing for pesticides in fruit & vegetables, herbs & spices, sugar, cereals, nuts, spirits, juice/concentrates and coffee.
  9. Ethephon
    This procedure is for determination of Ethephon in red grapes. The methodology both identifies (screen) and quantifies residues within your food sample using state of the art liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) equipment.
  10. Dithiocarbamates
    This procedure is for determination of dithiocarbamates in a wide range of unprocessed foods, sugar and infant formula. We can potentially test for processed foods - please get in touch. The methodology both identifies (screen) and quantifies residues within your food sample using state of the art liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) equipment.
  11. Infant Food Multi Residue Method (MRM) Pesticide Suite
    Pesticides are typically used properly by food producers but if used incorrectly, residues may be found at unsafe levels within foodstuffs, with potentially significant and harmful effects for consumers. Infants are considered to be at greater risk to harmful effects of pesticide residues in food.
  12. Manuka Honey: Microbiological Testing (NPA Only) - Priority Turnaround
    Total Activity (TA) and Non-Peroxide Activity (NPA) are measures of the ability of a honey to inhibit microbial growth. Phenol equivalence testing through traditional plate bioassay methods is used to accurately assess these levels and allow producers to ensure labelling requirements are met.
