We provide expert trace-residue analysis services, helping ensure your products meet the required standards. From our own state-of-the-art facilities we provide fast and accurate screening to detect, identify and quantify the presence of antibiotics, veterinary drugs and pesticides.
Our experts also monitor the legislative changes impacting your industry to make sure the most suitable approaches are deployed to reach the required limits. Rapid sample screening and experienced quantification services for trace metal content are available throughout our global laboratory network. We apply the most appropriate sample preparation technique to the sample in question, such as the microwave digestion technique. Our scientists are proficient in method development and validation across a range of sample types. We can offer bespoke single or multi-element analysis services as required including multi-analytical packages for heavy metals (mercury, cadmium, arsenic and lead).
Mycotoxins are naturally occurring contaminants produced by strains of fungi and can be found on food products such as cereals and grains, dried and fresh fruit, coffee, nuts and animal feeds.
Exposure to mycotoxins, directly or through their accumulation in the food chain, can be a serious health hazard for both humans and animals. As a consequence, the presence of mycotoxins is monitored and controlled.
Customers commonly use AgriTech services for Selection, Purity, Origin, Traceability and Sustainability (SPOTS) applications. We use the latest advances in DNA/protein analysis: e.g. genotyping, marker assisted breeding, genetically modified organisms (GMO), species identification, allergens, and pathogens.
