The past few months, our R&D team has been working hard on a unique highly reliable analysis method for glyphosate on 10 ppb, as requested by the babyfood and organic market. This new method will be activated on January 9th.

Unique online purification thanks to 2D technology

We strongly believe that the existing technologies are not sufficient to fulfill the needs of the babyfood and organic market.   

We are now able to analyze a broad spectrum of matrices on glyphosate at 10 ppb thanks to a unique new analysis method, a highly sensitive LC-MSMS with 2D technology. This 2D technology allows us to do an extra online purification to detect and quantify difficult glyphosate particles on the requested level.

Our market managers and customer care team are happy to give you more detailed info about this unique method.
