Pesticide Residue (MRL) and Heavy Metal Analysis

With increasing consumer awareness, testing your produce for pesticide residues (MRL) and heavy metal contaminants is becoming increasingly important. Many countries, including those in the EU, have very stringent regulations which govern the maximum acceptable pesticide residues (MRL) and heavy metal contaminants in exported produce.

Cropnuts offer a screening service, using gas chromatography to screen your produce for over 500 pesticides in a single multi-residue test. We can also quantify specific compounds such as glyphosate, as well as heavy metals like boron and lead. If required, we can also provide you with a QS (Qualitat und Sicherheit) label, demonstrating that your produce is fit for domestic sale as well as export to Europe, US or Asia.
