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.
As part of ensuring a constant quality control and -improvement, Primoris takes part in many national and international ring tests. These are independent checks on the quality of laboratory analysis.
On Monday July 3rd, we introduce a new product code for analyses on dithianon: DITH_01_A.When requesting dithianon in extranet, make sure to select this new product code.
On Monday July 3rd, we launch two important scope updates of our LMS and LMS2 multimethods. Please read these changes carefully as they might be relevant when registering a sample.
On December 16th, we celebrated the 15th anniversary of the Belgian private lab, that was officially launched on July 1st 2001 as a spin-off of the Belgian Ghent University.
