  1. Gelatine Animal Origin Analysis
    Gelatine is widely used in food and pharmaceuticals, manufactured from predominantly pig and cow, but also from poultry and fish tissue.
  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Isotope ratio (includes: (D/H)I & II, 13C and 18O)

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

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