    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.
  2. 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.
  3. 3-MCPD, 1,3-DCP & 2,3-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.
  4. 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.
  5. 3-MCPD & 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

  8. 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.
  9. AO Package (Aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, G2, total and ochratoxin A)
    Fera Science Limited can analyse food or feed samples to measure levels of Aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, G2, total Aflatoxins and Ochratoxin A. The methods used are fully compliant with EU contaminants legislation to allow you to assess your compliance with regulatory limits in place.
  10. 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).

  11. Acrylamide
    Acrylamide is a chemical substance formed by a reaction between amino acids and sugars. It typically occurs when foods with high starch content such as potatoes, root vegetables and bread, are cooked at high temperatures (over 120°C) in a process of frying, roasting or baking.
  12. 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.
