Fera food safety experts can identify (screen), and also quantify, residues within your food sample using state of the art LC-MS/MS equipment.  This data can be vital to ensure your products are fit for purpose, provide strong evidence to regulators and consumers that your food products are safe, and demonstrate that any residues present are below regulatory limits, or Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs).  The pesticides analysed in the LC-MS multi-residue screen include a wide range of insecticides, fungicides, herbicides and growth regulators. This multi-residue suite is for testing for pesticides in fruit & vegetables, herbs & spices, sugar, cereals, nuts, spirits, juice/concentrates and coffee.

We can also test for tea and other plant material as well as water but minimum batch quantities apply - please contact us to discuss further.

Our triple quadrupole mass spectrometry based methods are highly efficient, and within this multi-residue screen we test for 316 pesticide compounds.

Pesticides are substances that are meant to control pests or weeds. The term pesticide includes all of the following: herbicide, insecticide, insect growth regulator, nematicide, termiticide, molluscicide, piscicide, avicide, rodenticide, predacide, bactericide, insect repellent, animal repellent, antimicrobial, fungicide, disinfectant (antimicrobial), and sanitiser.

Many commercial pesticides are a complex range of different chemicals so it is important to monitor for a wide range of potential pesticide residues in your food samples. 

Residues are controlled through a system of statutory Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs) which are the maximum safe amounts of residue likely to remain in food products when a pesticide has been used correctly by growers adhering to good agricultural practice (GAP).  Maintaining residue levels below the MRL assures regulators and consumers that these pesticides have been correctly used and in turn ensures that residues are within the regulatory limits, minimising consumer exposure. 

This test is for our standard turnaround which is 10 working days but other faster services are available - please get in touch for further details. We require only a 100g sample of your foodstuffs to ensure accurate results, but a larger sample (typically 1kg) may be required to comply with some EU and Codex regulations.

Placing an order of 4 reduces the price to £192 per sample.

Pesticide Multi-Residue Screen 1 (Animal Products)

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 animal products like milk, cheese, meat and hens' eggs.


Fera is the UK National Reference Laboratory for the analyses of pesticide residues. We employ leading experts in the field to verify that food complies with regulatory requirements, ensuring consumers are not exposed to unacceptable levels of pesticide residues.


This procedure is for determination of trinexapac-ethyl in a wide range of cereal matrices. 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.
