  1. Nitroimidazole
    Nitroimidazoles are a group of drugs that have both antiprotozoal and antibacterial activity and have been used, for example, to control histomoniasis (a protozoal infection) in poultry. In the EU they are prohibited from use as veterinary medicines.
  2. Malachite Green, Crystal Violet, Leucomalachite Green, and Leucocrystal Violet (Combined Package)

    Fera’s specialist scientists in veterinary medicine residues conduct this test to highlight the levels of malachite green and crystal violet, and their metabolites leuco-malachite green and leuco-crystal violet, within your food samples. Fera can provide the evidence required by regulators to verify that the levels of both dyes within your food products are compliant.

  3. Dyes Screen
    This package screen by Fera contains a comprehensive range of dyes which have been known to be illegally employed as topical fungicides or acaracides in aquaculture.
  4. Coccidiostats (Multi-residue)

    Fera food scientists are able to highlight and quantify the levels of a range of coccidostats, within a variety of foodstuffs. We can also provide the evidence required by regulators to validate the levels of coccidostats within your food products.

  5. Avermectins
    The avermectins are a series of drugs used to treat parasitic worms. Fera food safety experts make use of innovative testing methods to highlight the levels of a comprehensive range of avermectins, within your food samples. We can also provide the evidence required by regulators to verify that the levels of avermectins within your food products are compliant.
  6. Aminoglycosides
    In veterinary medicine in the European Union (EU), Aminoglycosides (AGs) account for 3.5% of the total sales of antimicrobials. Fera's food safety experts can highlight the presence of Aminoglycosides across a range of food types including: fish, red meat, honey, and milk.
  7. Nitrofurans
    Fera food safety experts are ideally suited to highlight and quantify a range of Nitrofurans within your food sample. Making use of extensive, industry accepted techniques our accurate results are invaluable when meeting regulations.
  8. Florfenicol

    Fera food safety experts make use of innovative testing methods to highlight the levels of florfenicol and its major metabolites, within your food samples. We can also provide the evidence required by regulators to verify that the levels of Florfenicol within your food products are compliant.

  9. Veterinary Medicines Multi-Residue Screen (Option 1)

    Within this multi-residue screen, Option 1, Fera food safety experts highlight the presence of over 60 antimicrobial veterinary medicine residues within a single screen. The classes of antimicrobial substances covered include b-lactams, cephalosporins, macrolides, quindones, sulfonamides and tetracyclines.

  10. Veterinary Medicines Multi-Residue Screen (Option 2)
    Within this multi-residue screen, Option 2, Fera food safety experts highlight the presence of over 70 veterinary medicines within one single screen. These analytes fall into the following main classes : Anthelmitics, Coccidiostats, and Sedatives.
  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. 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
