Pesticide Residues Testing

Sidebar Image

To meet the expectations of consumers, supermarkets and government, farmers employ a range of pest control measures to ensure that produce is plentiful and blemish free. With hundreds of pesticides available and increasingly stringent controls and regulations, it is essential that comprehensive pesticide residues testing is carried out to ensure the safety of the food chain.

From our UKAS accredited centre in Wolverhampton, Eurofins can offer a range of targeted pesticide residue detection including:

  • Multi residue determination for over 400 compounds
  • Compounds from products imported from outside the EU
  • Extensive list of single analytes including chlormequat, mepiquat, nicotine, 2,4-D
  • Preparation of sampling plans and risk assessments
  • Comprehensive list of compounds from the Pesticide Residue Committee surveys
  • Validation and specialist support from Eurofins competence centres in Sweden and Germany
  • Individual reporting of multi residue actives against EC Regulation 396/2005, to a reporting level of 0.01 mg/kg

For small batches, order our most routine testing from Eurofins Testing in 5 quick and easy steps.
