  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Bisphenol A - Food and Beverage, Infant Formula, or Food Packaging Samples
    Bisphenol A is employed to make certain plastics and epoxy resins. BPA-based plastic is clear and tough, and is made into a variety of common consumer goods, such as water bottles. Epoxy resins containing are also used as coatings on the inside of many food and beverage cans.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  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. Polyphosphates Testing
    To aid in the declaration of polyphosphates we have developed a test that detects the amount of 'added' phosphates in prawns, distinguishing between the naturally occurring levels of phosphates and the level of added phosphates. In prawns, monophosphate is naturally occurring, where as di-phosphate and tri-phosphate are not, therefore the detection of diphosphate and tri-phosphate in prawns would confirm the use of polyphosphates. This newly developed NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance) based in-house validated test can successfully differentiate between the different forms of phosphates in prawns
  9. AO Package (Aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, G2, total and ochratoxin A)
    Fera Science Limited can analyse food or feed samples to measure levels of Aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, G2, total Aflatoxins and Ochratoxin A. The methods used are fully compliant with EU contaminants legislation to allow you to assess your compliance with regulatory limits in place.
  10. DZT Package (deoxynivalenol, zearalenone, T2 toxin, HT-2 toxin)
    Fera Science Limited can analyse food or feed samples to measure levels of deoxynivalenol, zearalenone, T-2 toxin and HT-2 toxin. The methods used are fully compliant with EU contaminants legislation to allow you to assess your compliance with regulatory limits in place.
  11. Aflatoxins B&G (Aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, G2, total)

    Fera Science Limited can analyse food or feed samples to measure levels of Aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, G2, and total. The methods used are fully compliant with EU contaminants legislation to allow you to assess your compliance with regulatory limits in place.

  12. Aflatoxins M1
    Fera can analyse dairy based samples to measure levels of Aflatoxins M1.
