Pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs) are a group of toxins produced by several species of plants, that typically grow as weeds. Contamination of other plant crops with PAs, e.g. teas and herbal products can occur as a result of small amounts of these weeds being included with these crops.
These toxins are a potential risk for consumers as they can enter the food chain. Fera has developed an LC-MSMS method to analyse for 28 pyrrolizidine alkaloids each with a limit of quantification (LOQ) of 1 μg/kg.
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.
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.
