Eurofins UK, the leading food and feed testing business has invested more than £300K in the latest instrumenPesticide_analysistation for pesticide residue analysis at its contaminants department based at the company's Wolverhampton laboratory.

The new state of the art instrumentation will enable more samples to be analysed to the lowest detection rates and with fast turnaround of results.

Investment has been made in gas chromatography (GC) and liquid chromatography (LC), triple quadruple mass spectrometer (MSMS) instruments. Using the latest technological developments, the new instruments allow targeted analysis of more than 440 pesticide components across both techniques in around 20 minutes; 97% of which are quantifiable down to 0.01 mg/kg and detectable even lower.

This investment will enable Eurofins to continue to expand the number of pesticides analysed across a wider range of commodities. The company recently extended the scope of its pesticide multi residue screen with an additional 54 compounds, with more to be introduced as the market demands.
