  1. Fipronil
    Fera food safety experts can both identify (screen) and quantify Fipronil and metabolite residues within a food sample using state of the art LC-MS/MS equipment. We can offer this test in a range of food samples including eggs.
  2. ETU and PTU
    This procedure is for simultaneous analyses of propylenethiourea (PTU) and ethylenethiourea (ETU) in a wide range of sample matrices. 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.
  3. Chlormequat and Mepiquat Chloride Analysis
    This procedure is for simultaneous analysis of chlormequat and mepiquat in a wide range of sample matrices. 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.
  4. Chlorate and Perchlorate Analysis
    Chlorate is an effective herbicide due to the oxidative destruction of the plant tissue with release of oxygen. Chlorate was banned in herbicides in 2010 and since it's use is not permitted the maximum residue level (MRL) of 0.01 mg/kg applies. Perchlorate is a similar contaminate sometimes occurring naturally, most abundantly in deposits of Sodium Nitrate in northern Chile.
  5. Maleic Hydrazide
    Maleic hydrazide is a plant growth regulator used to suppress growth and to induce dormancy in some crops. It is mostly used to reduce sprouting in stored crops, such as potatoes, onions, shallots and garlic.
  6. Glyphosate
    Fera is the UK National Reference Laboratory for the analyses of pesticide residues. We employ leading experts in the field to verify that food complies with regulatory requirements, ensuring consumers are not exposed to unacceptable levels of pesticide residues.
  7. Inorganic Bromide
    Fera food safety experts make use of leading detection techniques to accurately identify levels of inorganic bromide within food samples. This can give you the confidence to take the key production process decisions, to meet regulatory limits and provide high quality, safe foodstuffs to your customers.
  8. Dioxins and Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs)

    Fera food safety experts are able to establish the levels of a range of Dioxins and PCBs within your food sample as part of a complete overview of the safety of your foodstuffs. Our accredited methods of analysis are important to confirm that levels of these potentially harmful chemicals within your foodstuffs are below legislative limits thus avoiding potentially damaging product recalls, refusals, and loss of customer trust. With this analysis, our food safety experts can measure the levels of both dioxin like and non-dioxin like PCBs in your food samples.

    Many different matrices can be tested not just foods, contact us for further information or to discuss your needs with one of our scientists.

  9. Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon (PAH) Testing

    Fera food contaminant experts are able to highlight the levels of a range of PAHs within your food sample as part of this accredited analysis activity. Through our industry accepted methods and leading technologies we are able to provide accurate analysis within a timely turnaround window. We are also able to work closely with you to perform tailored analysis of your samples on request.

    Many different matrices can be tested not just foods, contact us for further information or to discuss your needs with one of our scientists.
