  1. Dioxins, Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and PBDEs

    Fera food safety specialists are expert at identifying and quantifying a range of PBDEs within your samples. Through this detailed analysis, useful insights can be found to confirm your sample is safe to offer to consumers. Our accredited methods are well suited to providing the accuracy and detection limits you require to highlight these contaminants.

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

  2. 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.
  3. 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.

  4. Free Asparagine
    Fera can analyse your samples for the presence of free asparagine using our state-of-the-art liquid chromatography – high-resolution mass spectrometry suite, and accurately quantify where present.
  5. Combined Chemical and DNA package

    This test combines Fera’s MPI 4 chemical markers test and Fera’s MPI Manuka pollen DNA test to provide a complete package for assessing the authenticity of your manuka honey sample, in line with MPI guidelines.

  6. MPI Manuka Pollen DNA Test

    This test confirms that there is sufficient pollen from the Manuka bush in the honey for it to be regarded as Manuka honey. DNA from pollen in the honey is extracted and analysed to confirm the presence of manuka pollen.

  7. MPI 4 Chemical Markers Test

    Feras food authenticity and profiling experts conduct the analysis required to measure the concentration of the MPI four chemical markers of 3-Phenyllactic acid (3-PLA), 2’-Methoxyacetophenone (2'-MAP), 4-Hydroxyphenyllactic acid (4-HPLA) and 2-Methoxybenzoic acid (2-MBA)

  8. Wine and Spirits Authenticity

    Our wide range of analysis activities are underpinned by our UKAS accredited stable isotope analysis methods.

  9. Natamycin Screen (Optional Quantification of Positive Result)
    Feras food testing abilities can highlight levels of Natamycin within a range of beverages, including wine. Natamycin (INN), also known as pimaricin and sometimes sold as Natacyn, is a naturally occurring antifungal agent produced during fermentation.
