  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Perfluoroalkyl Substances (PFASs)
    PFASs are a range of synthetic chemical compounds, which are used across a range of industries, most notably within the food sector. One of their most well-known features is the resistance to stains, resulting in their extensive use within cookware and other equipment in regular contact with food.
  6. Metals Analysis (New Lower Price & Faster Turnaround)
    Fera food testing experts perform extensive mineral and trace element testing of food samples, accredited to ISO17025, to provide insights into the quality and safety of your foodstuffs.
  7. Inorganic Arsenic (iAs)
    Fera food testing experts use leading detection techniques to accurately identify levels of potentially toxic arsenic within food samples. From this valuable insight you can satisfy regulators on the safety of your foodstuffs.
  8. Iodine
    Fera food testing experts perform accurate iodine analysis on food samples to provide insights into the quality and safety of your foodstuffs.
  9. Ethyl carbamate (urethane)

    Ethyl carbamate (EC), sometimes called urethane, is a naturally occurring compound in fermented foods and alcoholic beverages, and a known carcinogen. In many cases ethyl carbamate is formed by the reaction between cyanate and ethanol, though this is not the only means by which it forms.

  10. Zearalenone (ZON)
    Fera Science Limited can analyse food or feed samples to measure levels of zearalenone using methods that are fully compliant with EU contaminants legislation. This allows you to assess compliance with the regulatory limits currently in force.
  11. Trichothecenes

    Fera Science Limited analyse food or feed samples to measure levels of a number of type A and type B trichothecenes (deoxynivalenol, nivalenol, fusarenon X, 3-Acetyldeoxynivalenol, 15-Acetyldeoxynivalenol, diacetoxyscirpenol, T-2 toxin, HT-2 toxin and neosolaniol).

  12. Patulin

    Fera Science Limited can analyse food samples to measure levels of patulin with methods that are fully compliant with EU contaminants legislation. Our results can help you assess compliance with the regulatory limits currently in place.
