The Pharmacopoeia is a book containing directions for the identification of compound medicines. The role of the European pharmacopoeia consists in helping to protect the public health throughout Europe by focusing on the quality of the medicine and its compounds.

One of the steps in the protection of the public health is pesticide residue analysis on the raw materials of the compounds of these medicines. Primoris is able to analyze these raw materials.

State-of-the-art technology for an even higher reliability and lowering of the reporting limits

Using state-of-the-art technology is a definite must if you want to offer the highest reliability in terms of analytical results, speed and service. Thanks to daily investments and the use of the newest technology, we will lower the reporting limit on 18 June for a number of components included in our multiresidue methods and we will also add a number of components to our scope:

Launch multiresidue methods with maximum number of components at the lowest possible RL

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.
