    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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  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.
