Our ion chromatography method for analysis of glyphosate is highly selective and able to examine a wide range of sample matrices. Our glyphosate test can ensure that you are offering safe foodstuffs to your customers and are meeting regulatory requirements to avoid potentially costly product recalls or refusals. Through the use of industry leading analytical methods, we are able to provide the detail and accuracy you require to make key supply chain decisions.

Glyphosate is a well-known and widely used herbicide and desiccant used across a wide range of crops, but mainly cereals.  The use of glyphosate has gained significant public interest recently, due to claims of it being potentially carcinogenic.  As a result of this additional public scrutiny, it is important to reduce the risk of brand damage and the loss of consumer trust with strong evidence of residue levels (if any) in your produce.  

Fera’s latest testing methods can provide the confidence you need to safeguard against these risks.  Our food safety experts draw on decades of industry experience to provide the data you need in a timely manner, helping you make key supply chain decisions required and to confirm your production activities are effective.
