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.
All Primoris laboratories have been granted the new accreditation norm 17025:2017 at the end of March, which follows the previous ISO 17025:2005 norm. As a result of flawless teamwork between all departments and all laboratories, we have successfully made the transition to the new 17025:2017 norm, well before the deadline.
UPDATE 18 May 2020 | Today Monday 18 May Belgium is implementing phase 2 of the exit strategy out of the corona crisis, including a partial reopening of the schools and other economical and societal activities, always with respect for social distancing.This new phase has no influence on our activities, because Primoris has remained operational during the entire corona crisis to assure food safety on a daily basis
As from now on, Primoris is also your partner for high quality and accredited analyses on 3-MCPD, 2-MCPD and glycidyl esters (GE) in vegetable oils and fats.
We are thrilled to announce Primoris Belgium has added the official GMP+ BA11 certificate to its track record. This recognition allows us to even better support our customers that are active in the feed sector and/or the residual stream. As of today, 8 July we offer various GMP+-recognised analyses.
