Determination of crop protection products and contaminants is not easy. Hundreds of pesticides are on the market and they are used on hundreds of different commodities.
Primoris offers the analysis of a broad range of commodities and investigates in research to be an expert in the determination of pesticides and contaminants on special, more complex commodities like:
- Oil containing seeds and vegetable oils
- Plant extracts such as medicinal preparations and essential oils
- Animal products such as milk, eggs, meat, fat, cheese, honey
- Sugar crops
- Tea, coffee and cacao
For a lot of those more complex commodities, no specific legislation is actually in place. In order to make a correct interpretation of the analysis result, we follow the general MRL rules described in the pesticide EU-MRLs and active substances.
Based on the wide variety of analyses that we offer, we are able to analyse a big number of more complex matrices.
The group of complex matrices is a very heterogeneous group of matrices (like milk, spices, sugar crops, oil containing seeds, ...) so there is no specific certification for complex matrices in general.
Please contact us if you have questions about complex matrices, as we believe that our role goes beyond laboratory analysis.
Proficiency tests are part of Primoris’ everyday operation. These are independent tests that try to verify the analysis quality of a laboratory. Further, their results are used to evaluate the performance of the analysis methods and, if necessary, adjust them. Subsequently, Primoris also takes part in various undercover proficiency tests to meet the strictest quality demands possible.
The Primoris group is proud to announce the official opening of Primoris Costa Rica, located in Alajuela, offering analytical services to Central America and Caribbean countries. The head quarter of the group is located in Belgium, and started in 2001 as a specialised lab for pesticide residue analysis.
We want to inform you that as from 1 January 2019, the official street number of Primoris Belgium will change. This means that Primoris Belgium doesn’t relocate to another building, but only gets a new official street number:
