  1. 2-MCPD Analysis
    3-MCPD (3-monochloropropane-1,2-diol), 2-MCPD (2-monochloropropane-1,2-diol) and glycidyl esters are a by-product of processing or refining edible oils and fats and are only relatively recent in their discovery.
  2. 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.

  3. 1,3-DCP and 2,3-DCP Analysis

    Feras contamination scientists are able to offer a range of MCPD test variants upon request. Please contact us to learn more.

  4. Methylgloxal (MGO) Analysis
    Fera honey analysis experts make use of extensive analyses to determine the authenticity of Manuka honey. We determine a range of chemical compounds which are recognised markers of Manuka honey.
  5. 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.
  6. β-agonists
    β-Agonists (beta-agonists or Beta adrenergic agonists) are used in veterinary medicine to treat pulmonary disorders, but have also been used illegally as growth promoters for more efficient meat production. Fera’s food safety scientists can screen your food samples to check residue levels and confirm they are not present where not permitted, for example from use as illicit growth promoters in the EU.
  7. Pesticide Multi-Residue Screen 1 (Animal Products)
    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 animal products like milk, cheese, meat and hens' eggs.
  8. Pesticide Multi-Residue Screen 2 (Animal Products)
    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 animal products like milk, cheese, meat and hens' eggs.
  9. Trenbolone / Zeranol
    Fera scientists can undertake screening procedures to detect trenbolone and zeranol within food samples. Trenbolone is an anabolic-androgenic steroid (AAS), used in veterinary to improves muscle mass, and appetite.
  10. Tiamulin
    Food safety experts at Fera can screen your samples for residues of the veterinary medicine, tiamulin, highlighting their presence and quantifying levels present. Tiamulin is a member of the pleuromutilin class of antibiotic drugs that is used in the treatment of bacterial infections particularly for pigs and poultry.
  11. Thyrostats (Urine)
    Thyrostats inhibit the production of thyroid hormones, with the resulting side effect of this being weight gain, mainly due to increased water absorption and retention. Due to the weight gain side effect, thyrostats have been illicitly used to increase the weight of cattle prior to slaughter.
  12. 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.
