Primoris focuses on food ingredients such as glucosinolates, quercetins and carotenoids. For these three food ingredients we offer the possibility to analyze on project basis. The results can be helpful for determining the value of your product or rest product but also for sowing seed companies and plant breeders.
There is actually no legislation in place for food ingredients such as glucosinolates, quercetins and carotenoids.
Primoris’ analyses are mainly based on gas and liquid chromatography. For carotenoids, glucosinolates and quercetins we use the LC-UV.
Food ingredients are very wide spread. Primoris focuses on food ingredients such as glucosinolates, quercetins and carotenoids.
Primoris started as a spin-off of the Belgian University of Ghent and has built up quite some experience in research and projects. This makes Primoris an ideal partner for special analyses which demand a project-oriented approach.
Proficiency tests, independent controls of a laboratory’s analysis quality, are part of Primoris’ everyday operation. The past months Primoris participated in the following proficiency tests:
- FAPAS: pesticides in honey
- Proof-ACS: pesticides in baby food
- FAPAS: pesticides in in basmati rice
- EURL-FV: pesticides in egg plant
Research and development are an important part of the Primoris activities.
To support these developments, we always consider evolutions in market demands and legislation. Maximal risk coverage is becoming increasingly important within pesticide residue analysis, which can be contributed to the increased focus on food safety. Furthermore, we have noticed a growing market demand for lower reporting limits.
On Monday 1 March, we activate a substantial expansion of our LC/MS-MS multiresidue methods. Thanks to this expansion, we assure maximum safety regarding the current legislations and directions in terms of food safety and we offer you analytical methods that are in line with the actual needs of the market and that are relevant for your products.
Since Monday 26 October, Primoris can support you with accredited analyses to quantify ethylene oxide in food and feed. Samples that are registered as from Tuesday 10 November for ethylene oxide analysis will be reported with a reporting limit of 0,01 mg/kg.
