This procedure is for determination of triexpac-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. 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.

Trinexpac-ethyl is used as a foliar spray, post-emergence to control the growth on various grass species and crops. Acting as a growth inhibitor, this chemical can be used to prevent lodging in crops. This can result in an increase in the crop yield by redirecting energy to seed production in cereal crops.

Trinexapac-ethyl is approved for use on cereal crops such as barley, durum wheat, oats, rye, triticale and wheat as well as grassland, amenity turf and managed turf. The biological activity of this compound can result in improper use of it, such as overuse or use at incorrect harvest intervals. This can cause excessive residue levels to be found within foodstuffs, with various significant and potential harmful effects for consumers. As a result, 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 minimize 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.
