    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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

  5. DON (Deoxynivalenol)
    To be certain that your products are safe for your customer and consumers you need to be confident that your cereals and processed grain products do not exceed the maximum regulatory levels for Deoxynivalenol.
  6. 3-MCPD & 1,3-DCP 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.
  7. DZT Package (deoxynivalenol, zearalenone, T2 toxin, HT-2 toxin)
    Fera Science Limited can analyse food or feed samples to measure levels of deoxynivalenol, zearalenone, T-2 toxin and HT-2 toxin. The methods used are fully compliant with EU contaminants legislation to allow you to assess your compliance with regulatory limits in place.
  8. AOF Package (Aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, G2, total; ochratoxin A and fumonisins FB1, FB2 and FB3)
    Fera Science Limited can analyse food or feed samples to measure levels of Aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, G2, total; ochratoxin A and fumonisins FB1, FB2 and FB3. The methods used are fully compliant with EU contaminants legislation to allow you to assess your compliance with regulatory limits in place.
  9. 3-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.
  10. Fumonisins (FB1, FB2 and FB3)
    Are you confident that the potential levels of Fumonisins of your supply chain are within the legislative levels? Fera Science Limited can analyse maize based food or feed samples to measure levels of fumonisins B1, B2 and B3.
  11. 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.
