Pesticide Residues in Food

Always what's next

Food safety standards change and evolve, so what was once at the lower end of permissible pesticide residues analysis results today, may be at the upper end tomorrow.

Our innovative technologies help laboratories stay ahead of the curve. We provide powerful workflow solutions and expertise for ever-evolving pesticide residues analysis, to assist with regulatory compliance and food safety, food quality, and research and testing labs. From sample input to data output, we have you covered. Find recommended products and reading in the pesticide residue analysis procedure and workflow below.

NEW! Anionic Pesticides Explorer Workflow

Pesticide Explorer Workflow


Pesticide residue analysis procedure and workflow

Sample preparation solutions

Sample preparation and consumables that simplify and improve throughput for pesticide, herbicide and pesticide residues analysis. We offer automated sample preparation solutions for high throughput laboratories, such as the accelerated solvent extraction platform. We also offer the more traditional QuEChERS sample preparation products for food analysis for smaller laboratories and those working with difficult matrices.

Next, click on step 2 and/or step 3 depending on your preferred analytical instrumentation solution for your pesticide residues application.
