This procedure is for determination of Dithiocarbamates in a wide range of unprocessed foods, sugar and infant formula. The methodology both identifies (screen) and quantifies residues within your food sample using state of the art liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) equipment. We can potentially test for processed foods - please get in touch to discuss. This data can ensure your production processes are fit for purpose, as well as providing strong evidence to regulators and consumers about the safety of your foodstuffs and compliance with various regulations, including Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs).

Fera acts as the National Reference Laboratory for the analyses of pesticide residues. We employ leading experts to carry out tests to confirm that food complies with regulatory requirements; ensuring consumers are not exposed to unacceptable levels of pesticide residues.

Dithiocarbamates are a broad chemical class including fungicides such as the ethylenbisdithiocarbamates, metam sodium and thiram. Dithiocarbamates are used across a range of fungicides, their wide-ranging advantages and relatively low effects on the environment have resulted in their widespread use. It is therefore important to ensure that good pesticide usage practices are being used, from which to ensure only safe foodstuffs are being offered to consumers. One of dithiocarbamates, thiram, is used as a fungicide both in the field and as a seed protectant. It is often applied on fruits and post-harvest on a number of seed crops

Strict regulations are enforced around the world to ensure the safety of foodstuffs for consumers, as well as ensuring production processes and the use of pesticides are correct.

Our accurate and reliable analysis can minimise negative economic impact on your business from residue findings in your products.  Our testing is typical completed within a short timeframe of 10 working days or shorter if requested.

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.
