Scope extension of LC-MS/MS multiresidue methods with 44 active molecules

On 1 March, we've activated a substantial method expansion by adding 44 active compounds to 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.

Food safety and product quality remained priority in challenging 2020

Last year was incredibly challenging in every way and Primoris has remained fully operational during the corona pandemic, in order to continuously guarantee food safety. Even though we faced numerous challenges in 2020, we could note that the corona pandemic did not affect the attention to quality assurance, product quality and food safety.

Legislation: maximum residue limits for pyrrolizidine alkaloids

The European Commission has published some interesting modifications in the European legislation:
  • Maximum residue levels for pyrrolizidine alkaloids
  • Non-renewal of approval of the active substance mancozeb
  • Extension of the approval periods of the active substances benfluralin, dimoxystrobin, fluazinam, flutolanil, mecoprop-P, mepiquat, metiram, oxamyl and pyraclostrobin
  • Non-approval of the active substance topramezone
  • Maximum residue levels for carbon tetrachloride, chlorothalonil, chlorpropham, dimethoate, ethoprophos, fenamidone, methiocarb, omethoate, propiconazole and pymetrozine

Personal service in your own language in 13 countries

Primoris’ growth maintains a steady course, not only in terms of samples and analyses, but also in terms of our representation. The amount of countries in which Primoris has a commercial representative is rising steadily. Currently, Primoris has local representation in as much as 13 countries. Furthermore, for those countries in which we do not offer such representation, we support you with an international representative.

Primoris hops on the virtual bandwagon

As the corona pandemic deadlock continues for well over a year, a lot of commercial activities and networking opportunities had to be replaced by a digital counterpart. As a result, we were forced to organize our annual seminar in the form of two international webinars, which saw attendees from over 15 countries. As organising a real-life seminar will still not be possible, we will soon invite you to a new Primoris webinar.
