Pesticide Residue

To determine whether crop contamination has occurred, you need pesticide residues analysis. Using the most advanced technologies, SGS can identify and quantify the individual compounds of more than 500 pesticides.

Pesticide residues can be defined in two ways. One is that pesticide residues are the miniscule amounts of pesticide remaining in a crop after harvesting. The second refers to the degradation products that the pesticide changes into within the crop. Our residues analysis methods, which cater for both definitions, include the use of liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry (LC MSMS) and gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC MS).

Our pesticide residues analysis labs operate under strict guidelines, are accredited) to ISO 17025 and ISO 9001:2008, and staffed by scientists and technicians with years of experience – as well as degrees in chemistry, microbiology and agronomy. In short, we adhere to the highest standards of global governance.

Using our services ensures that your foodstuffs satisfy the world’s regulatory requirements for the levels of pesticide residues. Contact us now to find out more.
