Fresh products must undergo testing to address safety issues and to demonstrate that your fresh fruit, vegetables and others meet the most stringent pesticide residue standard in the marketplace today. We are specialized in the analysis of fresh products including fresh vegetables, fruit, exotic products and others.
With its 20 year of experience in pesticide research and method development, Primoris has established a broad customer base not only in Europe but also worldwide. Grower associations, vegetables and fruit cooperatives are our clients since the start-up in 2001.
By compiling data and information on RASFF notifications, existing legislations and recent changes thereof, Primoris wants to support their clients further in developing their food business.
Quality and residue testing are among the critical issues facing the fresh produce industry. We do our very best to support you in your fresh products analysis.
Primoris is approved by the German quality system QS. This shows that we meet even additional requirements such as a wide accreditation scope, content of the analyses and good results in QS and other ring tests.

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.
