Crop Residue Analysis
At RPS, our laboratory experts have extensive experience in crop residues analysis and testing, working across a range of pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and other organic compounds.
We use state-of-the-art accurate mass instrumentation which easily analyses the breakdown of products and metabolites to support investigations and research activities.
We work with agrochemical companies supporting them to achieve registration of active ingredients used on crops. Post application, the harvested crop is processed under controlled conditions and analysed on state-of-the-art instrumentation such as LC-MS/MS and GC-MS/MS. We're able to offer low levels of detection (ppt) to suit your requirements and in line with European Union Maximum Residue Limits EU-MRLs Regulation (EC) No 396/2005.
Targeted pesticide suites
We analyse for new and existing actives and supply a detailed report with validation and breakdown curves suitable for registration. We work to ISO 17025 quality standards and hold UKAS Accreditation for a variety of active compounds / chemicals such as Glyphosate & AMPA.
UKAS - flexible scope
RPS hold a flexible scope of accreditation for the analysis of pesticides in foods and crops. This enables the rapid validation of methods in line with SANCO guidelines to provide our customers with ISO 17025 accredited results to meet analysis requirements.
