Sidebar Image

Eurofins Food Testing UK Limited, the foremost testing business for the food and feed industries, has made significant investment in instrumentation for pesticide residues analysis in the Contaminants department based at the new state of the art laboratory in Wolverhampton.

The two new gas chromatography (GC) triple quadrupole mass spectrometers (MS/MS) will enable more samples to be analysed, to lower detection levels and with faster turnaround of results.

This investment will enable Eurofins to continue to expand the number of pesticides analysed across a wider range of commodities. Over 430 actives are currently quantified in the pesticide multi-residue analysis suite, with the percentage of actives that are UKAS accredited, now increased to 86% through the UKAS Flexible Scope accreditation process, with more to be introduced as the market demands.
