Pesticides are chemicals used to control pests. The term “Pesticide” includes insecticides, herbicides, fungicides and it is well known that over-use of pesticide can lead to dangerous levels of hazardous chemicals entering the food chain. Fresh fruits and vegetables are consumed in increasing quantities and it is this fresh produce that is most susceptible to pesticide residues.
In order to protect consumers, pesticide residues are under strict regulatory control globally. STRC offers a wide range of pesticide residue testing facilities in agro and other food products to ensure that you comply with the prescribed residue levels set by different countries.
STRC offers to test for detecting trace levels of chemical residues in agro products, processed foods, water and various other products. Residue analysis includes trace level detection and identification of unknown residues up to PPM, PPB and PPT levels, depending upon the sample and application.
Chemical residue analysis is conducted by chemists with years of industrial experience using mass spectrometers, IR spectroscopy, chromatography and other advanced instrumentation.
