Cypermethrin is a non-systematic pyrethroid insecticide with a wide range of agricultural applications, including the control of ectoparasites in domesticated animals. It is highly toxic to most aquatic species and honeybees.

Cypermethrin is approved for use as an insecticide in the UK for a range of vegetables and plants. Cypermethrin is also approved for use as a veterinary drug to control ectoparasites on sheep, cattle and horses in the UK. Cypermethrin is a regulated pesticide in the EU and MRLs are set various commodities under EU regulation (EC) No 396/2005.

 Cypermethrin is analysed at Fera using the latest state-of-the-art GC-MS/MS instrumentation for unequivocal and accurate results. Fera is the UK National Reference Laboratory for the analyses of pesticide residues with leading experts in the field carrying out tests to verify that food meets regulatory requirements and ensuring consumers are not exposed to unacceptable levels of pesticide residues.

Pesticide Multi-Residue Screen 2 (Cereals, Fruit & Veg & Others)

Fera is a UK National Reference Laboratory (NRL) for Pesticide Residues. Fera has established a reputation for implementing new technologies, developing and validating new methodologies and extending the scope of existing methods in order to include new pesticide/matrix combinations. This multi-residue suite is for testing for pesticides in fruit & vegetables, herbs & spices, sugar, cereals, nuts, spirits, juice/concentrates and coffee.

Polyphosphates Testing

To aid in the declaration of polyphosphates we have developed a test that detects the amount of 'added' phosphates in prawns, distinguishing between the naturally occurring levels of phosphates and the level of added phosphates. In prawns, monophosphate is naturally occurring, where as di-phosphate and tri-phosphate are not, therefore the detection of diphosphate and tri-phosphate in prawns would confirm the use of polyphosphates. This newly developed NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance) based in-house validated test can successfully differentiate between the different forms of phosphates in prawns

Infant Food Multi Residue Method (MRM) Pesticide Suite

Pesticides are typically used properly by food producers but if used incorrectly, residues may be found at unsafe levels within foodstuffs, with potentially significant and harmful effects for consumers. Infants are considered to be at greater risk to harmful effects of pesticide residues in food.
