As well as accredited analyses for a range of matrices from food producing animals. Fera also provide bespoke method development solutions and un-accredited analyses for other analyte/matrix combinations. Processed meat and samples high in fat may present an analytical challenge and require additional method development prior to analysis and as such cannot always be analysed using accredited methodology. Please get in touch using the contact details on this page to confirm testing requirements and accreditation status if unsure.

Fera’s ISO 17025 accreditation status can be found at https://www.ukas.com/download-schedule/1642/Testing/.

Fera’s food safety experts make use of liquid chromatograph-tandem mass spectrometry based testing methods to highlight the levels of a comprehensive range of dyes within your food samples. These dyes are known to have been used illegally as topical fungicides or acaracides in the aquaculture industry. The use of dyes in food production is banned in the EU. Fera’s testing procedure can provide the evidence required to satisfy regulators that any residue levels within your food product samples are compliant with requirements and safe for human consumption.

This complete screen includes the following set of dyes: Malachite green / Leucomalachite green, Crystal violet / Leucocrystal violet, Azure B, Brilliant green, Ethyl violet, Methylene blue, New methylene blue, Nile blue A, Pararosaniline base, Rhodamine 6G, Victoria blue B, Victoria blue R, and Victoria pure blue BO. Sample types screened include seafood and fish, both products which would contain residues from illicit use of dyes in aquaculture.

The dyes screen is conducted using an analytical method based on liquid chromatograph-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS), at our state-of-the-art suite. This testing method has been validated in accordance with the principles set out in Commission Decision 2002/657/EC, and our dyes analysis is accredited to ISO17025 by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS). Turnaround is typically 10 working days after sample receipt by our science team.

Confirmatory Analysis

Confirmatory analysis, where required, will be at the same value as the analysis performed. Fera will contact you beforehand to establish if the additional analysis is required. The delivery time for confirmatory results will be 10 working days from your instruction to proceed.

Coccidiostats (Multi-residue)

Fera food scientists are able to highlight and quantify the levels of a range of coccidostats, within a variety of foodstuffs. We can also provide the evidence required by regulators to validate the levels of coccidostats within your food products.

β-agonists

β-Agonists (beta-agonists or Beta adrenergic agonists) are used in veterinary medicine to treat pulmonary disorders, but have also been used illegally as growth promoters for more efficient meat production. Fera’s food safety scientists can screen your food samples to check residue levels and confirm they are not present where not permitted, for example from use as illicit growth promoters in the EU.

Avermectins

The avermectins are a series of drugs used to treat parasitic worms. Fera food safety experts make use of innovative testing methods to highlight the levels of a comprehensive range of avermectins, within your food samples. We can also provide the evidence required by regulators to verify that the levels of avermectins within your food products are compliant.
